Hello. My name is Uladszimir. Briefly - Bob. I am 53 years old. Country: Belarus. Minsk city. I have been reading MV for a long time. Many people who are here are already my friends)). I love Piaggio. I had Piaggio Liberty 125 2009, Piaggio BV 250 2009. I bought mp3 500 2019 in California (USA) at the end of last year. Already he swam across the ocean. He is a little damaged. Now I am repairing my scooter. I have a lot of questions....
P.S. Sorry. I do not speak English . I use Google Translate. I hope you understand me....

Who will recognize your ex?

New Owner Needs Help in Illinois - Learning to Ride MP3 500
I live in Melrose Park, IL - West suburb of Chicago. I have a 2016 Piaggio MP3 500 I bought in spring of 2019 and I need help learning how to ride it. As we know, general motorcycle riding courses do nothing. I will pay per hour. I've been looking for someone to aid me for a while. Just found this forum! There is one guy on a MP3 250 in Oak Park, IL I keep seeing and can never wave him down.

If you are near and wouldn't mind the compensated time ---please respond.
I can be reached via email also at

Thank you!

Hi Anikishani, welcome to Modernvespa!

So given you have had your MP3 now for over a year, how much have you ridden it?

Motorcycle Safety courses are certainly fine for learning how to work with an MP3, other than the tilt lock.

What sort of questions are you looking to get answered?

47, bay area, CA, USA. 2019 MP3 500. so much fun.

other bike is a 2000 BMW R1100S. others have come and gone since. i have had motorcycles (many!) since i turned 15. no doubt, the MP3 is among the most fun i have had, what a brilliant idea!

if you look at my profile, i joined forever ago when i was in the market for a Vespa 300, and this forum was very helpful (in the end i didn't get the Vespa, i went a totally different way and got a KTM Duke 1290).

I just got it a few weeks ago and I'm loving it. Came from 50cc scooters. It's a blast.
