Hope this post gets on site cos Iím new to technology Hello have just joined this forum today I first obtained my bike. License in 1968 I had a lambretta 150 then By 1969 I moved on to motorcycles and over the years have ridden every type of bike from dirt to touring In January I bought a Vespa 300 gts mainly to put in the back of my truck while my wife and I toured Europe towing a caravan Coved 19 kyboshed that idea so Iíve been having day trips around the north east of England and cannot seem to stop the permanent smile I have on my face if anyone can find a better cure for lifting spirits than a Vespa scooter the w h o need to be informed

Congrats on the Vespa and welcome to this forum! There are a lot of folks here who completely understand. I hope the opportunity to haul your GTS to Europe becomes a reality soon. We hauled our scoots 1,800 miles from home last month and are enjoying the riding.

Scalping the big boys

Welcome, Terence. I, too, am brand-new to this forum and the scooter world. Exactly one week ago I traded in my 2007 Honda Shadow for a Vespa Primavera 150.

Now I am afflicted by "perma-smile" as well . . .

Won the treasure hunt again map reading skills I learned in the scouts have not been wasted. My prize for the win was beer strangely Iíve woken up with a bit of a headache I havenít got a clue what could have possibly caused that
