Hello everyone! I'm new here and because I'm buying an MP3 I thought I'd come to a forum filled with experts on this peculiar bike.
So here's the scoop. My first scoot was a Yamaha Vino 50 which I rode for about four years. I then moved up to a Genuine Buddy 125, which I rode for about four years. All of my scooting has been in rural areas and small towns and there has been a fair bit of it, about 1K miles each riding season (May - September). For reasons too boring to go into I stopped scooting for (wait for it) about four years and now I am dying to start scooting again. Like a lot of people I like to screen shop scooters and have been rolling the MP3 over in my mind for about ten years. I am now finally getting one (a used MP3 250) but though I feel confident that I have the experience to handle the MP3 it has been a few years so I'm a tad nervous about it, particularly the weight. I'm really here just looking for reassurance (or any kind of honest opinion) about how much of a shock the MP3 will be and any tips you might have on switching from 2 wheels to 3.
Thanks everyone in advance! I'm really looking forward to being part of the Vespa/Piaggio family!
