Hi new member just wanted to introduce myself and my ride which is my first Vespa a 2019 Sprint 150S in Versace Blue matt paint with matching top box. I have loved riding this around for the past 10 months around my hometown through the hills and backroads and more recently find myself taking it everywhere I can. In fact I am strongly considering upgrading to the new GTS300 SuperSprint to use on the freeways and ride to work. Just started reading the forum looks like a great deal of knowledge here which I will very much appreciate. Thanks Andrew

I know it.

Those gravel spur roads are fun going up down to kinglake area: Beale Ave, Bowden Spur Rd, Bald Spur Rd*. Always too much traffic on St Andrews-Kinglake Rd

***Update***

The 150 Sprint has gone to a new owner and I have upgraded to the Second Edition GTV300 Sei Giorni 2022 model with just 1200kms on it. For those contemplating the jump from a Small frame to a Large frame Vespa, do it the power on this bike is amazing and so agile for a larger frame.

Many great trips ahead I am sure..... only downside so far is the storage is actually smaller than the 150 Sprint and my 3/4 helmet will not fit as it would in the 150.

Great choice Andrew, great bike. Now if I see another Sei Giorni out my way I'll know who it is.

Welcome jinandrew,

Good looking scoot. Yes, the 300 has the long legs for all occassions. Mine is Dragon Red.

Good to see you're not afraid of a bit of gravel
