OK, I don't have my ride quite pimped out like most you folks, she's pretty much stock, but this girl gets me around and gives me a reason to want to go to work in the morning. These are from a couple of stops on my way home from work. One shows the skyline of Minnepolis behind it ('city built on a bell curve) I thought it would also be appropriate to get a couple pics by the Mississippi River since it's a significant part of my commute.

I need to sneak it on a soccer field yet to get some shots of her in front of a goal... next week.

Borrowed camera... might have gotten some better shots with my own...

Very nice!!! Did you do her name in chrome? It looks stylish, the size fits the leg shield just right.

But the Mississippi looks so much smaller than is does here in St Louis?

No, not chrome, decal. All the decals are reflective.

I believe that's an island and you're only seeing part way across the river. This area has a lot of islands. I'm sure it's much wider by the time it gets to you, though. You pick up a lot of tributaries long the way.

Looks great Larry! Now tell us what you have mounted on there. GPS? Type? Mount Type? The scoots name tag is a great size. Is it a white reflective vinyl or gray?

The decals are from signet works http://www.signnetwork.com/customvinyllettering.asp (I got the link from stldon) color: Pewter, Font: Hancock, size... just plain old measured. The other two were stock pictures from them done in reflective white. I was out tonight in the dark and MAN are they reflective!

The mount is a RAM mount with my old (but beloved) eMap GPS.

Wow, the GT's gauges are so much better than the GTS'............wish Vespa had kept it all analog.

Does anyone know if the gauges on a GTS can be swapped out?
