I recently pulled my GTS out of hibernation, and my thoughts have turned to where I might take the GTS if it needed service and I could not do myself.

I used the old 'Seattle Vespa' which was either in Georgetown or Sodo, but that enterprise has apparently gone belly up (what happened to Boris?).
I went to the new dealer in Greenlake, but I don't know what their actual expertise is, and I did not care for the place much. I hope the free-swiveling mirror and broken reservoir cover tabs is not an indication of what they did to the drivetrain.

What are people's current thoughts on where they might take a Vespa for serious service in the Seattle area?
Thanks, folks.

I thought that shop closed. There was one on S Tacoma Way by 54th. Anyways ya it does stink that Seattle Vespa closed. I bought my GTS there at the 1st Ave location. According the Vespa the only shops left are South Sound, NW Moro on hwy99 next to green lake and Believe Motorsports.

+1 for the SSScooters crew. I have bought scooters and parts from them, and have my scooters serviced there, too. Mark (owner) and Jason (mechanic) are great guys who just want to see the scooter community grow and flourish.

There was previously a scooter shop in Tacoma (S Tacoma Way by 54th), but it closed several years ago. Jason was the mechanic there.

Check it out.
