Hello folks, new member from Maryland. Bought a GTS300 about 3 weeks ago. Its tons of fun to ride, already have 300 miles on it. Been riding motorcycles for about 30 years, mostly long distance rides, Iron Butt, cross country etc., decided to pause the motorcycle riding and have fun closer to home on the back roads, so the Vespa seems to fit the bill.

Welcome to the forum from an ex Marylander. Live in Florida now.

Been up and down the east coast many times on big Harleys and BMWs. Finally outgrew the bigger heavy bikes (getting older) and loving the 2 Vespas I have.

You will like this place. Post pictures.

Welcome. I think you may find that your Vespa can deliver a lot and you may come to love it more than you ever thought.
You may regale us with your adventures on the back roads possibly.
Stay safe and enjoy mate..

Welcome from so California. Some of us find joy in riding our Vespas long distances. Hope same proves true for you, too, Paluss.
