Two things I wanted to do at Retirement. One, get a place close to my daughter's. Two, get rid of my 800lb Triumph and get a Vespa. Both are now done. Time to enjoy. [/img]

gnees,

Nice looking Vespa. Welcome from Minnesota.

There are a bunch of us who moved off the big motorcycles
and enjoy dashing around on these great machines.

We love photos. If convenient, do not be afraid to post
photos of your adventures.

Good on you to be closer to family.

Bengan,

I also like what you have done with that good looking 300.

Unrelated note: As much as 40% of the population of my State Of Minnesota
are immigrant descendants from Norway and Sweden. They
must have got here - wrote home - this place is full of snow
and cold - get over here! We have a local Swedish Institute
and the royal family of Norway visit every year.

Even our accent of American English has scandinavian overtones
It is called speaking Fargo.

Amazing,

Photos from Australia to Alabama to the Netherlands and
Lancaster UK. Thanks everyone for the great photos.

In my ancient times, you would need a Shortwave Radio to
communicate like this. Obviously, there would not have been
any photos.

A couple of days touring around mid and north Wales on the hottest days of the year (in fact today was the hottest day ever recorded in Wales at 98.7°) Took these pics at a rest stop in the Snowdonia National Park. Snowdon in the background being the highest peak in Wales. There's a fine and varied collection of the airborne fauna of Wales to be dealt with tomorrow with a bucket and sponge.

Wanted to share a few new items on my GTS.

1. GTS Super 300 badges on top case.
2. Vespa club stickers on both sides of top case.
3. Removed both warning stickers by glove box.
4. Added chrome valve stem caps to wheels.

RadioDreaming,

You have done some good work on that GTS. Looks amazing.

There is a very good scooter riding group in Wisconsin with
their annual 4 day ride scheduled in September. It is
called Wisconscoot 2022.

My Minnesota group scooter riding group, "Minn-Max Scooters
of Minnesota", is loop riding out of Hillsboro WI this next
Thursday through Saturday.

Thank you Bob, I will enjoy having this after spending many years on 125 and 150's. May even venture on the M4 to get out of Wales on it. Mind you motorway driving gets pretty boring compared to the views of the mountain roads.
Probably feel massive after the ET4's and there 10" wheels 😊

Got it home after a 19 hr 670 odd mile drive. Took out for a spin into Lampeter. I love the extra surge of power after a 125cc for overtaking safely and the powerful brakes you don't have to send a telegram to so they start working.
Few niggles to deal with like starter/Bendix whatever it is but at £850 I have no complaints plus got given a full Mallossi transmission kit comes with clutch as well with it.
Pic outside mate's new venue opening in Lampeter soon. It may well become the meeting point for Clwb Scwter Ceredigion ( Ceredigion Scooter Club ) which is just forming on Farcebook.

Since the above post in June I have been getting ready for a road trip from Florida to Pennsylvania and back. It should be about 2200 miles round trip. I did it in a car a couple months ago. 22 hours without stopping except for gas. I want to try it on the Vespa. I have been getting spare parts, tools, oil, belt, and anything else that I can think I may need. Looking at some kind of spare gas can now. Any ideas, let me know.

There are lots of threads on here about suggestions on what tools to take on long trips.

Regarding spare fuel, you have all the racks which is good. The most obvious choice is to get a 5L plastic fuel can and strap it to your floor rack using straps or bungee cords.

Alternatively, a popular choice is to use a MSR bottle. These are fuel approved and can be put under either the front or rear rack by using 2 large hose clamps.

Good luck with your adventure and please let us know how you get on.
