Another Ohio MP3 recent owner/rider
I'm in Columbus, Ohio, and I just bought a used 2008 MP3 500 and am hoping to find parts to make it a long haul touring vehicle. I'm looking for a trailer hitch, trailer wiring harness, cruise control, CB Radio, and am/fm radio that accepts my cell phone as an accessory for listening to Pandora music thru my existing helmet speakers. The only thing I've found so far is a Shark AM/FM Radio that might work. I rode a Goldwing for years but am learning to enjoy this lighter more nimble scooter.

Any helpful suggestions and specifics would be appreciated

Look at the Sena Bluetooth headsets. They have a box that interfaces with a midland CB. Can also connect to phone and a bluetooth dongle that can go to your stereo.

Not the best price on the CB but it gives you the info.

Opps just caught the existing speakers line. Trailer hitch and wiring are one off custom stuff. Do a search and you will find a few examples.

Thanks for the sites and suggestions 14perry
Also, I did find 2 homemade trailer hitches, one for a 2009 mp3 500 at http://reddogscooter.blogspot.com/2009/12dec-2009-plodding-along-with-the-uni-go-hitch,
and another for a mp3 400 at UPDATES ON: First time ever making a trailer for my MP3 400 a modern vespa topic.

Also, I found a cruise control that might work at http://omni-cruise.com on e-bay.

I'll have to keep looking for a wiring harness and the rest when I can. I already have a small trailer I can use.

I'm also in Columbus.

If you get your amateur radio license, you could use one of these Baofeng UV5 radios.

It uses a Kenwood style microphone plug.

I hope to have something cobbled together in time for Pelotonia.

Happy Hacking!

Add another Ohio rider...

Just picked up a used 2008 MP3 500 in black for my wife. She's using it for her daily commute here in Columbus.

New Ohio MP3 Owner, First Post
Hi everyone!
I've been lurking here since the weather changed. I have to say, I'm really impressed with the community here on modernvespa. I've found a bunch of posts on maintenence, cleaning, parts, and upgrades extremely useful.

I purchased a used 2010 MP3-500ie in October. It's my first scooter. I had just enough time to get some work done on it and get a few really satisfying rides before winter took hold.
I live in the greater Cleveland area.

I'll have to get some pics up and finish my profile. I look forward to getting to know everyone here.

Welcome to MV and to owning the MP3. You have some nice areas to ride once the weather gets decent.
