Just thought I'd introduce myself here. I've been reading the forum for a while and just bought my first Vespa. It's an ET4 and I'm loving it so far. Any other members in East Tennessee? I don't see many Vespa's around here.

Hey there you Hill-Billy (said with all the love from someone who used to live in Tn. ) I was in the West side of the state, near Reelfoot Lake.
Welcome to MV, and congradulations on the scoot!! Clap emoticon Clap emoticon Clap emoticon Clap emoticon
I lived there from 73 to 89, we moved there as I was going into 5th grade. Visited the east side of the state many times, and the mountains are beautiful any time of year, esspecially with all the snow on the trees.
Look online to see if you can find a scooter group close to you, my guess is they are going to be few and far between. You are deep in the red-neck zone there, and a pickup & a Gun is all they want.. Razz emoticon I hope there are some civilized people you can find to ride with!! I wonder if the Memberlist would let you sort it by state or even location?? If your anywhere near Knoxville or Chattanooga, you should not have any problem finding others to ride with. Look to see if you can find Vespa dealers near you, or even other scoot dealers; give them a stack of cards that have a way to get in touch with you, phone, email or some such. Put on the card "Looking for scoots to ride with" If you get anyoneto contact you, then point them to MV and share the goldmine of information and freinds you have found here!!
Yes please take some pictures of your scoot and the great country side, don't be shy put yourself in some of them!!

Welcome to the Best Forum for Vespa Scooters nitegaunt
Please post some photos of your et4, My first Vespa was also an et4.
My et4 was Red and I got 25,000 miles on it. As long as you treat it with
respect, you will get a life time of pleasure riding your scooter around.
So welcome aboard, pull up a chair and stay awhile. 8)

Thanks for the welcome guys! It is certainly beautiful around here and I've been having a lot of fun riding on the country roads in the mountains. I do a lot of hiking on the Appalachian trail and others around here so I definitely appreciate the scenery. And now I can appreciate it in a different way, too! I took some photos and I'll try and post them up later in the photo section. Thanks again for the warm welcome folks!

I posted a link to a couple of pics in the gallery section. I couldn't get them to post here. What's the actual difference between the ET4 and LX150? Is it the same engine?

Thanks, I talked to the guy at Scooterworks and he confirmed it, too. He was really a wealth of info and very helpful on a lot of questions I had. I'm planning my upgrades and mods.
