Its only taken me a year to find a bike thats right for me. I suffer with Arthritis so getting on and off bikes can be tricky and the seating position has to be just right. Tried everything from A Duke 390 to a Silverwing and then eventually on a friends recommendation a BV350 ST which I fell in love with on a long test ride a week or so ago.

It just arrived yesterday. Its in stunning condition on a 2014 plate with a Leo Vince exhaust (certainly sounds good) and 8000 miles on the clock. I didnt think the BV or the 400cc scooter range would be quick enough for what I wanted but Ive been blown away by the performance of this bike. Seems to have lots of grunt for what I want which is generally wasting fuel in the Dales where I live for no other reason than the fun of flying about. Its so good we are considering doing a couple of UK tours on it maybe to Wales or Scotland.

Im keeping the little Honda Vision on the photo as we carry it on the back of the camper van. We have done 18000 miles on that in the six years we have had it, mainly in Europe.

Just need some decent weather now. Its pants up here at the moment.

I thought the British were more for the Triumphs, but yeah ... I also have arthritis in my left arm and I'm going to get a hip replacement soon, huh age ...
The Beverly (BV) is a good car, beware of engine oil ... sometimes it eats more than it should.
How do I know ...? Well, sometimes I help a friend Piaggio dealer in his work, he also has a workshop and I like to talk to customers and mechanics.

Beverly 350
That BV350 is a scoot for all purposes. It has enough power and larger
wheels to move along smartly.

Thanks for the photo. Weather and riding. My scooter group is having our
first ride of the Season this Saturday May 1st. About ten of us are cruising
around the Lake System in the Western Suburbs of Minneapolis USA.
