Good evening, all!

New member here living in SLO, CA. I have previously owned a 1960 VBA for many years in the early 2000s and foolishly sold it…. Looking to get back in to scooting and thought this would be a great place to start.

Looking forward to being a part of this community again!

Welcome from southern Arizona!

You've come to the right place for Vespa fans.

General Discussion is a good spot to get up to speed on the automatic Vespas, from the ET-series up through the latest GTS / GTV models.

If your interested still lies with the older hand-shifted two-stroke models, the Not So Modern subforum will be right in your wheelhouse.

Regardless of your preference, any day on a Vespa is a good day.

Hi Jeff!

If you get chance, try out one of the modern ones (GTS ideally), they're a lovely ride!

I need to keep Modern and NSM in the armoury as I need to breath 2-stroke and shift now and again!

Welcome to the forum

Welcome, Jeff, you are in the right club. I've sold a few Vespas I regret as well, but there are still plenty out there, (I'm picking up one tomorrow)! If you have some pics of the VBA, post them on the NSM side. We love pics of old scoots.

Thanks, all!

Yes, will be spending a lot of time in the Not So Modern sub-forum as that is what I'm looking for.

If anybody has any leads on scooters for sale in Southern California or the Bay Area let me know.

Also, any fellow Central Coast people here?

Cheers!

Welcome aboard! The Rides of March is a must especially since you live where it takes place. Lots of blue smoke from all the 2T scoots. Hope you get another scoot soon. Rob

Thanks for the heads up on the rally here! Looks like the last time it was held was 2020, has this still been an annual event?

Nice, looks like a great turnout! Moved here late last year, still in discovery mode.
