Hi - We live in Arnold, MO (south of St. Louis). I've had my black MP3 since April 6th of this year, just after my 62nd birthday. Purchased it at Moto Italia in Edwardsville, IL.

Had to have some stuffing removed from the seat and buy "taller" boots (I'm 5'4" -- 112 lbs.) so I could get my feet flat on the ground, but otherwise, it's been great! I've been a passenger (Harley Road King and Goldwing Trike) for many years, but haven't ridden my own bike for about 25 years. I LOVE the MP3!

Unfortunately, it's been so BLASTED HOT here for the last couple of weeks that we haven't been able to ride. Crying or Very sad emoticon Supposed to be 102 for the next week!

How are you enjoying your new ride?

Hi Jo Anne,

You are the only Missouri member I noticed so far in the forum. Glad you replied!.

I have been enjoying the MP3 very much. I have only a few miles to work and with the weather in MO so wet the past year (but not so much this year) I sold my chrome covered cruiser for something better suited for a short commute and less bad weather cleanup. You get tired of polishing a huge chrome beauty after a while! I have driven the MP3 to work every day since I got it but for the day I needed to bring a case of Ball quarts to work for a co-worker. It is canning time for some things!.

Yes the heat has been bad!. I call it a drive through a blast furnace when it is like this. It is warmer than I like but tomorrow I must get the MP3 to the dealer for service number one. So I have a 70 mile one way trip to look forward to. I have scheduled an early appointment in Osage Beach so I at least beat one half of the heat.

Glad to hear from you. I have enjoyed your posts.

Hope to hear from more Missourians. I have yet to encounter another MP3 on the road but I do see more and more scooters on the road every day.

Best Regards,
Monty

No, I haven't seen another like one "us" on the road yet either! We did see a couple of them (besides the ones for sale) at the dealership in Edwardsville when we went for a Saturday gathering, but they were from other places in Illinois. The dealership told me they had only sold one other one in Missouri (think I got the first one in Eastern Missouri in April!) If I ever see another MP3 on the road, we'll probably BOTH turn our heads in disbelief!!

Do you get lots of questions and looks -- I sure do! And at my age, I'll bet they're looking at the scooter! LOL! I had a policeman stop me in a parking lot and ask me lots of questions. He then asked if he could take pictures of it with his cell phone to show his buddies so he could PROVE what he saw! What fun!

Enjoy your new ride and have fun getting to the dealership in our Missouri BLAST FURNACE!!

Regards,
Jo Anne Nerd emoticon
