I'm so excited, just got my new scoot! This is a stablemate for my '59, in the background of the pic.

You definitely got the best color. Welcome to ModernVespa.com. When you can't ride it, mod it.

These yellow scoots are beautiful. I love the bright red Vespa jet helmet garm, it contrasts well with your GTS.

Welcome to the forum. A good colour for sunny California.

How do you like the shorty fairing? I was thinking of going medium

You mean the bug shield/windscreen? I like mine a lot, but when I ride with an open face helmet, it buffets my head a little. With a full-face helmet, there's no problem (my helmet is convertible - it has a removable chin piece and a retractable visor). I'm so vain, I would rather buy a better helmet than a taller windscreen. But I know some people prefer the taller windscreens.

The compromise is the Faco Twin Screen. It gets good reviews. Scooterwest.com stock it but being made in Italy, ordering from a European retailer like SIP (sip-scootershop.com) would probably work out cheaper.

Found a poll on here for windscreens:

Here is the FACO medium, might be a good alternative to that twin screen.

A little taller than Jim McClain's?

That twin screen looks high maintenance to me. But I did try to order other parts from SIP and found that shipping prices were way too high for me (I live in northern California). ScooterWest.com offers a discounted/free shipping on orders over a certain amount. They also sell a few items from SIP, so I would suggest calling them to see if they can get whatever part you like on the SIP site and see if they have a better overall price. I ordered a part from ScooterWest yesterday that isn't listed on their site (or SIP's), so I know they will make an effort to get you what you want for your Vespa.

Wonderful Color
The color of that scoot and helmet will attract neck cranking stares
when and wherever you ride.

I like my Dragon Red, but that yellow is off the chart eye appealing.

Thanks Bob, very kind!

I do want to be seen (but not in an ego kind of way).
