Are you sure they weren't from Martha's Vinyard?? Clown emoticon

I'd be shocked to see one around here. Heck, I almost fell off my scooter when I saw an MP3 in town. Where did THAT come from?

I never see them. I have one on the scoot and on the cage. I've given away several to people I ride with, but I don't see them displayed. I'll keep looking. ..

I've met a few MV members but other than that I could count on one hand the number of Vespas that I have seen in my area in the last five years. I'm pretty sure that I am aware of all the MV members that live within 200 miles of me.

I think there are two members here in Bend and as far as I know neither of us has a sticker.

I saw one on a Vespa GTS 250 a few years back. I've seen more ADV Rider stickers on scooters than MV stickers...

There are VIP scooters *everywhere* in the Vegas Valley (I call them Vegas mosquitoes) but I've seen maybe 2 other Vespas besides mine other than the ones sitting at the shop. No MV stickers anywhere that I've seen. Haven't really paid much attention to the ones back east...the roads are less forgiving in New England so no rubbernecking for MV stickers there.

What color was the scoot? I was out yesterday, though my MV sticker is discretely placed...

Have not seen an MV sticker here in the Coachella Valley. I can count on one hand the number of Vespas I've seen and on two hands the total number of scooters (and yes, I move my lips when I count!). I'd proudly display one should I get one!

I've seen a few scooters around my area, none with MV stickers, I've seen a guy on here which my city as his location but AFAIK haven't seen him on the road.

I'm kind of a lone scooterist anyway. Not the one to strike up random conversation with people out in public, I've come to discover most people exasperate me. Kind of a different story if I'm at a rally or scooter shop, then I can be quite social.

At my very first rally, still very new to the MV community (and to riding a scoot) I parked across for a fellow who had a huge homemade 'M' 'V' sticker on the front of his GTS.

Trying to be a friendly chap, I walked over and introduced myself and asked him what he goes by on MV. He looked at me like I had ten heads.

When I asked him about his sticker he informed me that it meant 'Modern Vespa.'

Good thing there isn't an MV handshake (that I know of) because I would have really looked foolish

I believe it was dark blue. I saw it again today (Wed) as I was driving out to my doctor's appt. If I recall the sticker was placed centered on the rear above the tail light.

I now have a new travel game for my kids. I told them that when we are out and about to find an MV sticker and I'll give them a buck.

I'll be amazed to spot the first Vespa on the road or parked on the street other than my own!
