To stick, or not to stick, that's the question

I'm like a kid in a toy store.

Do I stick stickers on? Do I leave it plain?

I've got plenty of time to decide.

I might do this:

I've also got a Corazzo sticker I could put in the centre.
Decisions, decisions.

Winter modifications, Chapter 2

I picked up a brand new Cuppini tall windscreen for my Vespa LX150 today.

No pics yet, cause I can't install it until I put the scoot back together, and I can't do that until I wrap up my electrical modifications.

I really think that I'm going to want to cut it down to a mid-height screen.  The trick is that I only get one kick at the cat.

So there are at least three windscreen threads on Modern Vespa that I am going to have to read, and re-read, and re-re-read, and take notes as I do it.

I'm almost looking forward to this as much as I did installing the Stebel air horn.  Almost as much because once the install is done, there won't be that "BBBBBLLLLLLLAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!" moment when you hit the horn button for the first time :)

Still, I'm really looking forward to this.

For those scooter owners that have yet to install a Stebel, I saw them in stock at the local Canadian Tire store this afternoon for $69.95, the same price I paid last year.  A bargain, and a necessity.  No better way to make your presence on two wheels known.

As usual, more to come, so stay tuned.
