I have had my Vespa for 2 years now and I love it. Been riding around the Charlotte, NC area back roads and out to lakes. Would really like to find some more people in the area to ride with. I have a Facebook page set up Queen City Scooters in the hopes of getting together. This picture was taken in Stanfield NC.

Hello to all on MV.

After years of indecision on a gts, finally pulled the trigger on a Hpe supersport.

I like that shade of grey. What is the tab on the bottom of the license plate; red reflector?
Why are balls hanging off the tree.

I wasn't going for this color at first, though the sales person told me that the vivace blue looks much better outside than in the showroom. It's so true.

Don't think I'd want to go to a place named Snake Lake. lol

Your tires appear shinny. Don't apply tire shine as it causes rubber to road lubrication.

As long as I'm nosing into your business, I think a little red accent on the rear would harmonize with your front grill and spring. Ar you supposed to put a sticker saying there's pressurized oxygen in the pet carrier?

Thanks for the interest, the flat grey was not my first choice but happy enough with it.
The red tab is a reflector (now removed).
Balls in tree are actually solar powered light bulbs, a purely decorative addition by my wife!

Here are a couple of extra pics of scooter in better light.

Can almost smell the salt water.
Nice scoot and matching helmet. Is that a narrow silver edge guard on the fender? Good idea.

You wouldn't like it in this part of the Sierra Nevada then; there's 2 (yes, two, count 'em) Snake Lake's, one at 39.677736, -120.691210, the other at 39.976172, -121.005908. And two Smith Lake's, each within a few miles of their neighboring Snake Lake. Odd place I live.

Looks are deceiving. I wouldn't do that to my scooter tires. I wouldn't even do it to a photo of my scooter tires.

There will be a few red accents and you should be able to see some red from any angle when I'm done, even when I'm riding. I have a flat black gauge frame I plan to paint red - it'll look like a necklace. I ordered a license plate frame I may also paint red. When it's safe to go to Reno, there's a vinyl wrap shop I want to go to and ask if they can do something in red on the rear cowl skirts, probably something reflective so I stay within the law (one of my closest friends is a captain in the CHP and she's not too happy I removed the reflectors).

As far as I know, only commercial vehicles that carry o2 have to display stickers. I have thought about putting a couple on my Jeep because I carry a lot of cylinders in it, but I won't put any on Red.

New member here. Have been reading into this forum for a couple of months now, thx all! What wonderful machines!

Just transitioned from a '2 car family' to a '1 car and 1 Vespa' family. Was lining up a 150 Piaggio Medley until my wife talked me into a 300 GTS! Haven't looked back.

First decent ride on the weekend of 90 odd miles, through Ku-ring-gai National Park, north of Sydney. Loved every moment.
