Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and a new Vespa owner. I used to ride a Yamaha V Star 650 years ago so I'm not new to 2 wheels but I'm new to scootering and I always wanted a Vespa. I decided now was the time to buy one! I just posted a few pics of my GTS Super 300 in the scooter gallery.

I'm located in Wisconsin and currently working on getting to that first 600 mile service. When I'm not riding the scooter, I find myself watching plenty of online videos about Vespas and reading books about Vespas. Glad to be here reading the forum and I'm always looking forward to that next ride!

Welcome to MV. You'll end up finding any little excuse for riding your new GTS, they are so much fun. I like the pictures you've posted on Scooter Gallery.

Yes, brand new. Just over 300 miles so far. Mostly rural roads and occasional city riding.

Welcome from just up the road! If you're into socializing there's some opportunities around, though none in Madison that I know of. We do some riding in SW Wisconsin every year for one..... Scoot Jockeys in Lake Geneva is good to keep an eye on as well...

Welcome from the Jersey Coast! Great choice in your new ride (of course), and you appear to be in reasonably good company here, location-wise.

Thanks for the tips! I'll keep looking out for any upcoming events. Checking out Lake Geneva is on my list, just haven't made it down there yet.

Welcome aboard from your neighbouring country to the north. You will love riding a Vespa and made a great choice! You may also be pleasantly surprised by how much power it puts out for a 300cc CVT.

Scoot Jockeys has a nice Scootoberfest in fall and some others. Good group.

If you don't dislike crowds and can get away, Amerivespa is going on in Minneapolis in a month!
