I would like to introduce my favorite color on my favorite purchase.
I went from the regular white to Metallic Military Green via vinyl wrap. Itís a 2018.

Considering adding a yellow tint on the front lights, but I think Iíll look like a SPRITE can. -Not that thereís anything wrong with that.

Next ďmodĒ is fog lights. Any recs for good LEDs that throw light on the actual road?? Iím all ears.

Thanks, Bill! Green is my favorite color. I thought it was going to be matte military green but when I saw it I didnít mind the finish on it. And it matches the bike better (on the satin finish gray parts).

Now people will finally be able to tell us and our bikes apart!

Thatís beautiful! If I may ask indelicate questions, how much did cost and how long did it take?

Hey Budz, itís not that personal; makes sense you would ask. I got a lot of quotes for a grand, but I found one guy who did it for about $570. It was A LOT of labor; he unscrewed everything. If you already have the tools for that, I would advise taking it apart and seeing what the cost would be then. The front faring was hardest to do. For the most part you canít tell itís wrapped but on the front faring you can. But then, I chose not to pay 1K. Youíd have to get up close and mostly, people are seeing the back of it, speeding away at a speed and acceleration that makes one envious. Iím happy with it.

White is my favorite color for the BV350. I'd certainly like to own one someday, but I dig the wrap as well. Definitely sounds like a great deal at only $570, especially if they dismantled and put it back together. Any other plans for it like exhaust, filter, etc?

Planning on putting a set of fog lights on the front forks. And eventually a topcase. Not sure about any other mods; I always look to see what people do online but I donít see much, unfortunately. Iíd also like to get the front faring panel to serve as working signals, maybe upgrade that too.

I'd certainly like to see the fog lights done. More lighting is always a better thing on a scoot since we are basically invisible to drivers. If you do, please post pictures.

Thanks, man. Your ride looks pretty sweet as well! My wife and I go to Fl (usually!) a few times a year and I'm always dying to get a ride in but nowhere I know of to rent a BV or TMax for a nice sunny trip...

Thanks, CoolBeans. The wrap has held up well. I went to a guy I know in Queens, he mounted them for me. Took a bit of creative finagling. I love the fogs; wish the left side hadn't already burned out!

Thank you, JFJ. I have to admit I fantasize about my next scooter when the BV is done. Maybe a BMW (I'm a sucker for heated everything), and a lower seat... But I love this bike and right now, it meets my needs.
