Hi Guys,
Well I've done it- this year my christmas present for my Vespa (but really me) is a Malossi RS24 front shock
It's almost EUR200 but if I can't spoil the girl this time of year, when can I ? I've been reading the reviews here and am really looking forward to fitting it. I have also ordered the Jettin bushings for the rear so I will post pics and my findings when it's all done.
Come on Santa, hurry up...........

Maybe a set of engine cases from SIP for my seemingly endless small frame project if they ever get them in stock. For the P2 and BV, nothing as they need nothing. Otherwise goodies for my new boat ( 13' Gheenoe) .

Not specifically for the scooter. But I just bought three Bluetooth headset units for our helmets. I installed them today. Tomorrow I get to test mine and the kiddo's out (11 year old Son). I'm taking him as my official toy consultant for a Toys for Tots scooter group ride tomorrow. I'm hoping the helmet to helmet intercom makes the rides more entertaining for him so he'll want to come with me more.

Thinking about a front-rack, I desperately need a cell phone charger/holder as well.

Some shocks would be nice, my ride is kind of bumpy!!

It did not start out to be a Christmas present, however, I'm hoping that my OEM Vespa top case arrives in time now to put under the tree. I purchased the "Addmore" light kit,(those I have) so I'm looking forward to installing both as my Christmas present to the Mighty Mite Vespa. I'm also, looking forward to spring, I got a set of Michelin "City Grip" tires mounted by "Flying Tiger" bike shop just before this bad weather hit and the tires seem to be very nice. However, I needed the tires, stock rear tire was shot at 3,000 miles and as they are 2007 originals I replaced the front tire too. I had a non-OEM topbox, which was functional so blowing the cash to get a matching "set" well that is clearly a Gift! The Running/brake/turn lights are just to be safer so they are more like a "needed" feature and not just a doo-dad. Sad thing is my Sportster does not seem to be getting a Christmas gift Crying or Very sad emoticon

New tires for my GTS: 140/70 rear and 110/90 front Power Pures.

Am keen to have a more accurate speedo, thought about the 130/70 for the front, which seems to help but at the expense of heavier steering. Hoping the taller 110 will keep steering both light and nimble while getting the most accurate speedometer possible.

I have some Tucano winter gloves in the post (eBay bargain). The GTS will probably get a powder coated CVT cover, some body TLC (stone chips) etc and maybe a new decal or two. The GTR in a roundabout way will be getting a new drill and drill stand to help the engine rebuild... and a bundle of new engine parts in January

I have all my fingers crossed - and I put my list on Facebook: " a pair of heated motorcycle gloves for Christmas if anyone's listening. And armoured pants. And a Bluetooth system for my helmet". Then I sent my husband the ScooterWest sale flyer with about six things circled in red. Here's hoping!

Malossi Whoop Discs, Front and Rear for the GT 200. Don't need them, but they sure are pretty. Probably won't go on though until I get a set of Malossi RS24 shocks to mount at the same time. I stockpile parts and put them on all at once.
