For about three years I've been obsessed with owning a Vespa… through a lot of difficult times I have finally taken ownership of a 2018 touring with 400 miles on it…. Mind you I live in Cleveland Ohio…. I flew to Phoenix to get the scoot…. It's a long way home but fortunately I have been given the opportunity to make it happen…. I have no set plan for anything but I would like to meet you folks….I'm not weird or nothin but might want to be reluctant to admit this is Vespa porn…it's a great forum..lol

Will you be riding through KC on your way home?
I know some riders that might ride a few miles with you.

Congrats and welcome.

I think its safe to say that most motor vehicle enthusiast at one point or another have fantasized about the one-way ticket to their new ride and the adventure of driving it home.

Way to go making that a reality.

Is it this one that happens to be a touring edition and the same color? does yours have a Ram mount included? It was posted near me a couple months ago on offerup. 450 miles on it.
Either way, it is a sweet looking ride.
Congrats on your new ride 🛵

Welcome Booch. Good to hear of another Vespa in NE Ohio. We are few and far between.

As others have said, if there are no pictures, it didn't happen - so post up.

I am hoping to have my own 'Number 1' soon... new ride should be arriving at dealer within a week or so... fingers crossed....

I too have been obsessed with getting a Vespa since about 2018 when a trip to Tuscany had me seeing them all over the place

That's a beauty, there. Congratulations!

Trying to figure out where you were for the photo, but that tree in the background gives it away.

You know, you could ride right on up to Amerivespa while you're at it and get all social and all.

That is a beautiful machine! I almost bought one when they came out, but couldn't justify it at the time. My Tethys is still going strong. I hope you get as many miles and smiles out of it as I have out of mine!
