congrats on the new ride.


just a suggestion. post your location in your profile so we know where you are when you need help with things. Plus others might want to ride with you.

Congratulations! I just got one in February with 800 miles on it. Same color too!

Welcome to MV and to the new GT200 owner you are

It is an awesome feeling, I had the same one last year on February 16 when I picked her from the shop

Treat her well and she will give it back to you hundreds of times !

We do like pictures....

Photos!
First thing I gotta do is swap out the snakeskin trimmed seat! It's in perfect condition - anyone wanna trade? It's neat but not my style! 8)

Happy Birthday!

The scoot looks great and right at home in your garage next to the buddy. Sorry, can't help you out with the seat. Good luck finding a trade!

Fan-stiniking-tastic.

Congratulations and enjoy. The GT rocks.

Great to see the new posters this season. With gas prices nearing $4 I think we'll have a big new crop coming on board.

Enjoy!

Is your digital clock not working ?

It might be a pain to replace the battery, look in the wiki for help if needed

Just got through the Wiki area (thanks for the recommendation) and found that I'm in a sticky situation without the red master key. I only received the blue key and a key for the top case. Crying or Very sad emoticon

I hope that wasn't why you got a 'steal'.

Contact MV member JimH (you can search by member name). He's the local key guru. If he can't sort you out... you can't be sorted.

Good luck.
