Finally picked up my new black GTS over the weekend! Five weeks after purchasing my first Vespa LX150 and four weeks after it getting totalled (http://www.modernvespa.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2561&highlight=), I've stepped up to the GTS

I've only got 40 miles on her so far, but I've thoroughly enjoyed every mile! It is so much more comfortable than the LX. I snapped a few pictures yesterday... I'll eventually get around to taken some more visually appealing ones of course

I've got some plans for her in terms of paint... Thinking about some white accents, to include the front fender, horn cover and a black/white seat cover. Kinda thinking along the lines of old schwin bicycles that had the black and white scheme going...

Wow! Looks great! You can do anything with basic black.

What's with the spikey trees in the background? We ain't got nothin' like that in Minnesota!

We have the one that's in the second picture here in Virginia (the tree state). We call those telephone poles.

I'm not sure which trees you are referring to, but I don't think I would know what they were anyway... We have a lot of strange trees here in Hawaii that I didn't grow up with in Iowa, I just haven't got around to learning what they are yet.

I don't think I do. Well, if I do, I didn't notice the Dodger pictures or know it had been there since WW2.

Sorry, the pictures didn't come through. Those are sitting on your iDisk, but you need to provide a different path in order for us to see them.
