Any ideas on how to get into the glove box on my 2006 Vespa 250 GTSIE. I locked it with the key inside, no spare and no remote.

Remove the left-hand black knee cover. Using either a very thin hand, or perhaps better a length of wire from a stiff coat-hanger, tickle the latch mechanism at the backside of the steering column.

When you've retrieved the key, get it cloned ASAP.

Not recommended - the fallout for the OP should they bugger up the lock without having a master key will be pretty expensive.

Far easier just to open the glovebox, it should take more than a couple of minutes at most.

Get a piece of nylon packing tape approx 2' long, pry one corner out and slide the middle of the packing tape in and pull one end across the other side and slide the tape down both sides of the glove box front it will push the lock down on the inside and pop the glove box open its that easy.
