Hey, SAFit07 --

Where in San Anton? Still looking for someone to ride with. I keep seeing a dark cherry red on the corner of Helotes, near Bill Millers.

Going riding this weekend, come hell or high water (and since we're in a draught, and it's 97 degrees today, only one of those is likely to happen).

I've got the dark charcoal one you may see once in awhile commuting south/westbound on 1604 coming from Hausman since I'm parked "inside" for work not far from there. The other days, I'm taking the side/local streets home w/ the twisties...plus, I get to practice my all-round skills since it's been sometime since I last rode. Oh, & I'm "gowned" up all the way too.

66.6 mpg this past tank...best so far!

56 years old here,
live in Dumfries Virginia.
Got my MP3 250 yesterday.

Silver color.
Had three people ask me about it within 30 minutes of unloading it
from the truck. One even wanted to buy it!


Now I have to find a good name for it!

Glad to meet someone that knows that has lived here and knows the year round riding experience we have. I hardly ever drive my truck anymore, it just sits and have to start it up once a week. So much storage room on the MP3 400 w/the trunk added and the medium windshield that is on it is all I wanted in a scooter. I can now go on interstates and town rodes with no problem. I Want to go to Washington State this summer to visit my son on it. Glad I did not get another Harley. I think they are good motorcycles but the 400 is good and such a fun scooter too. Bob

Congratulations on your Blue MP3 250. It is the best for San Diego unless you like to run the freeways and race.

I have the DK Cherry Red but under work to add some panels that are colored the Graphite Black. Looks sharp so far. Except I turned over on it yesterday while on a scooter run in Escondido. And I am in pain, but never give up.

Us San Diego People should bond together and join a group and really having people turn their heads a second time.

Want to brag...
Rode 90 miles Sunday, so my mileage has doubled... figured out how to get down the blasted hill (just did it, finally), and rode down our highway (2 lanes some of the time, 3 lanes other times). A little slower than most of the traffic, but have to figure out how to ride in wind...


FUN!!!

Riding mostly on base, as the traffic in the city is crazy, but have braved it in traffic a bit as well as on the free way. Wont make a habit of that I imagine.
