Greetings! Long time lurker, 1st time Vespa owner. After a lifetime of motorcycles starting when I was a little kid I finally graduated to a GTS 300! Whoo hoo! I joined the VCoA and I'm looking forward to riding with scooter folk (scooteristi?) around Austin Texas and the world! So far I've installed tip-over bars, flat rear rack, small windscreen, and USB outlet. Not sure I'll keep the tip-over bars. Glad to be here!

The black and red look good on this devil of a machine. I would keep the crash bars having been on the end of paying for repairs from a crash these bars would have helped a lot. My damage was only $20 away from being written off. I plan to add bars myself in 2024.

Congrats on the new ride! I just picked up my own GTS Super Sport from AF1 here in Austin last week.

Added a new oil pan, flyscreen, and rear rack. Will be swapping out the belt cover and front suspension cover to black soon as well.

The closest we'll get are Rotorua and Auckland, thanks. Where will you be riding?

Nice color! Excellent choices on first mods too. Hope I see you around.
