Hi All, just got my first Vespa and I'm well pleased!
Considered buying a Royal Alloy but plumped for a GTS 70th Anniversary in the end and I'm very glad I did. Pic below of Royal Alloy and my Scoot.

Thanks for all the kind welcome messages - much appreciated!

I've done a few bits now since I got it. I've removed the front rack and changed the horn cover so there is no holes. I've fitted the tinted headlight (from a Super I think) and a tinted front screen. Colour coded top box and matching backrest to tie with the 70th anniversary colours. Side crash bars fitted too to protect the body work as space is tight in my garage and I would hate to scratch it! See pictures below:

The „Royal Alloy“ is actually a Scomadi. But congrats for your new GTS.

Thanks for the reply. I was really taken with the Gulf Racing colours. It looks a smart machine and cheaper than the Vespa too. Its personal choice and I (well the Wife!) prefers the look of the Vespa and she is part Italian so it was a done deal really.

Just curious - why the Akrap?
1) You like more noise, or?
2) Does the engine need modification?

O.S.

Fellow Newbie here ..... just picked up a 2020 GTS Super Sport ...... a “big brother” to my 2018 Liberty 150 ....... couldn’t part ways with it, so far, so good juggling both!

Looking forward to reading up and learning from fellow enthusiasts.

Welcome to MV! - Two nice looking scoots you have there. I'm sure they both have quite different personalities. I wonder which one will get used the most?

Welcome to ModernVespa
JKwanza,

Good combination of scooters. Do no be shy and post pictures of your
adventures. We love pictures.

I am somewhat familiar with your town. I went to Boston University.

Hey Bob your GTS is awesome. You know what they say the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. 😀
