Hey All,

I just relocated from Modern Buddy, as I just traded in my Buddy 170i for a brand new Piaggio BV 350. I did this last Wednesday!

So far I've got over 300 miles, and loving every bit of it...

What a difference coming from the Buddy...

Feel free to offer suggestions, or anything I need to watch out for...

Again, another BV convert.

Gotta love the power and maneuverability of a BV.

Glad to see you over here on MV. Congratulations on your new BV. I predict you will love it. I've had mine 2 years and no real criticisms. My only two comments are about the seat - fits some and doesn't fit others - and the windscreen - could use a bit more height. You will find multiple threads here on both subjects.

Welcome to Modern Vespa The BV is a great choice. Adapting to the throttle response coupled with engine braking at low speeds was the only issue I've had with the BV. It's a minor one though ....I luv the bike
