Here's my GTS
Here is a photo of my new 2008 GTS.

I've installed many mods; previously discussed and posted.

I regret that I've not yet got a photo with a scenic background.

Here's Beatrice on the road in Hunter, TX.

My one mod is a cafe racer seat from Pirate Upholstery. The second mod will be the addition of a flyscreen. It's in a box on the floor in front of me. Now I just need a push to get outside and get started.

Hi mart.
This is a 5 Liter Spare can.
I need it several times in North Norway and closed to the russian border.
There was no Gasstation.

Here's mine - just did the bar end mirrors, switched out the GTS seat for a GT seat - Popped off my GIVI top case for a few shots. I agree, I like the look better without the top case but need the extra space.






With the GIVI

NICE!! Thanks for the bar ends Nyle - they worked out great - and don't look so bad either!

By the way, check out these shots for the close ups of the bar ends with the CRG mirrors. I LIKE, ITS NICE - Jaqui!

Yeah, no chrome left at all - bar ends, wheels, crash bars, break levers, passenger foot rests - all powder coated. Lights blacked out etc. etc. My ET4 is all chromed up, I wanted something more cage fighter style for this bike.

Don't forget the front center cap, and maybe the front shock spring! Even the sidecase would look hot in Black!
Here is a GT I just finished doing with black rims with a chrome brembo brake set up!

There are black backrests for $85+shipping on ebay from a vespa dealer somewhere in the US.

Here's a couple pictures of mine. Just got it a week ago, and I've been riding too much to stop and take a really good pic. These are just real quick "sittin in front of the garage" pics. No mods, but I did stop riding long enough to pull the warning stickers off.

Salima's GTS in Utah


My "first" GTS, paying tribute to a respectable elder


The same, before...


... and after the repaint


Not mine, but that's where I saw the paint.


Leaning towards fun


Flying high


Chasing a tag, with 2007GTS


All of this riding comes at a price, though ... (the price of fun miles and an empty tank)
