Picked up my scooter a couple months ago in Denver. Been working on acquiring accesories and maintenance items from the local dealer, Amazon, and Scooter West. Made a road trip to California and made a stop at Scooter West. Picked up a rear crash guard and a few maintenace itmes from Scooter West. I had already order the Vespa wind screen from the local shop where it is on back order for an undetermined time. I should have picked it up from Scooter West while I was there as they had them in stock. I use OEM whenever available.

The picture is right after we got it home.

Welcome. Piece of well meaning advice - get some good riding gear: FF helmet, jacket and pants with armor, shoes and gloves. Protect yourself and have fun. Nice scoot.

That sounds great - great time to dive the Channel Islands. The water's a bit cooler but Santa Anas are usually in - making it unseasonably warm for us during that time.

Aboiut 1770KM each way. The Vespa rode in the back of my pick up truck which was pulling an 8 meter long Travel Trailer.

That look on your face says you are about to say something profound in Italian.

Welcome to the forum from Michigan where our scooter season is only 11 months a year. Ok ... 11 1/2.
