Hello!

Just bought my Sister-in-laws 2009 950, going to pick it up today. A bit of a difference than my beloved Vespa 200 GT. Looking forward to helpful hints from the real riders as I start out!

Welcome to the forum.
Me thinks you'll notice a bit more power on the 950 - LOL!

There are some anti-spam hurdles in place using this forum. Now that you've posted in the "new member introductions" section, you should be free to put up new topics.

Do think about the MSF riding courses.

I have included this picture taken at the recent meeting of our Basic Riding Course. We have a 100% student success rate (a few do drop out though..)



And welcome to the most helpful, understanding and sensitive forum you'll ever find.

Now scram and don't bother us...

(There, there, want a tissue?)

Welcome
