What did you use to achieve the "tricolore" Italian flag motif on the horn cover? Is that a vinyl wrap, or did you have it custom painted?

Vinyl wrap and a hair dryer. Came out better than expected, I must say.

Better than expected? It looks *outstanding*! Next question - is that one piece of vinyl with all 3 colors, or did you do 3 "stripes", so to speak, of different colors right next to each other?

Three separate sheets of adhesive foil. I began with the green, then overlapped it with the white foil by approximately 2 mm and finally the red foil overlapping the white foil.

Must be tough to do the finns.
Used to build R/C planes and covered with Monocoat that has an adhesive back that activates with a small iron. You can stretch it a little around contours. Does the wrap you used tighten and adhere with a blow dryer?

It was tough, but some time and patience did the trick. The foil I used is very stretchable when persuaded with some heat. From a German company called X-Film:

Another great picture, but it freaks me out. The thought of trusting the side stand on pebbles. I can't help but visualize your scoot falling over just as the picture is being taken!

Thanks! No worries about standing on pebbles. Since a couple of years back, the GTS has a new improved side stand that stays out no matter what. It's very sturdy.

This morning i took advantage of the cooler weather and around nine o'clock i stopped along the external road that runs alongside the natural oasis of the abandoned medieval city of Ninfa (read the link).



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garden_of_Ninfa

In the vicinity and outside the ruined city walls, several apparitions of incorporeal entities have been reported over the years and voices and noises have been heard where there was nothing; in fact the area is as if it were out of time ...

I agree, standing on the side stand makes the GTS look sportier in a way.
