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.

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