  4. That is one sweet looking tangerine m'lady. I can just see you riding it around, scarf flying in the breeze.

    Very eye catching color - don't let Brad see it. You know how he is with orange too.

    1. I am afraid that I can envision myself too well on that beauty, too. Mum's the word towards Brad...

  5. The black trim and wheels really do go well with the orange. And it has graduated from "want" to "need".

    So how does it ride?

    1. Glad you like it Bob. It is not a motorcycle but given the roads here, 300cc will definitely do the trick until the mighty Harley arrives.

  9. Very nice choice Sonja. For a second there I thought you would resist. I have endured riding deprivation in Italy, all the while surrounded constantly by hordes of motorbikes, and lots and lots of Vespas. Not a single GTS with that colour combination. Someone spent a lot of money on all that powder coating. I'm looking foward to seeing that bike in your posts. I hate to suggest it, but black crashbars would look great too. ;)

    1. David, that is a good idea. I have never seen a scoot modified like this either. Not sure why but the previous owner sold it to get a bigger bike shorty after his customization was finished. My gain.
