Now I'm 55, and have a For Sale sign on my V-rod cause my new MP-3 400 will be taking it's place in my garage next to my Honda ST1300. But the fall is a lousy time in Minnesota to sell a bike.

I'm 67 & live in Lynchburg Virginia. Sold a DR650 and an '85 Moto Guzzi LeMans to buy my leftover '09 dark red MP3-500. Bad back & hips are making "throwing a leg over" my remaining Guzzi's ever more painful. Bought the MP3 in hopes of staying in the wind as long as I can.

Howdy from Deep E.Texas... I'm a lady...57 but I swear I look 37.... Well..if ya were to squint or b drunk.

Motorcycle owner 30 yrs ago .... before children....I bought my 2009 MP3 500ie from eBay for 4k last weekend for my birthday.. LoL

Full scooter insurance for me & hubby minus "heath ins" was $104.00 for yr. Hubby thinks I'm having an affair with Batman. Scooter name = the bug!

5'4 short legs are a little problematic but... practicing on a local school parking lot and tippy toes. Practice makes perfect... stops. Treating scooter like a motorcycle ...tilt lock only when leaving bike when turning off motor... for the most part. Nice to meet y'all.

63,and from The Emerald Isle, Ireland.

Living in Shankill about 10 miles south of Dublin.

Was riding all sorts of things as a teenager, settled down, family etc, but I think biking always stays in the blood, so about 18 years ago now re-built a crashed 1975 Honda CB750 and then moved onto various Harleys.

Sold my prize and joy, 1986 Heritage Softail for various reasons and as I wanted something a bit different........hence Fuoco......

As far as I know and according to my local dealer, I am one of 4 Fuoco's in the country and I had to go to the UK to get mine.........

OK, I "think" generally the way "Spock on Star Trek" thinks .... logically.

Probably due to my 21 years served in the Air Force.

Now I'm in here lurking at peoples' message feeds and the first thing that comes to my mind looking at their ages ... why not just put a month (maybe a day) and year when you were born?

That way, if you put your age in here in the year 2009, I'm too old to try to figure out your age now.

But I do know that there are a bunch of us older people that ride the MP3s ... which is a good thing.

I think I'm in here some place. But I'm not sure. So I'll start this off by giving you my birth year, so it will be easier in years to come where you might be able to figure what my current age is!!

I am 54, from Northern NJ, USA.

I have a question to the mods of this forum... is there a way to be able to tally the total of say, the US owners, UK owners, European owners?

Really curious as to how much US owners are catching up (or not) with the Euro mp3 brothers and sisters regarding the numbers.

Thanks in advance.

38 in March and living in Germany.

Previous scooter experience was mostly little 50cc scooters. Enjoying my 400 and having withdrawals due to the winter snow that we received.

Would like to meet up with other riders from southern Germany for rides.

Just turned 62. Live in a small town in South Wales called Blaenavon. Wife and I loving the new experience of riding our recently purchased new 500 ABS. Both car drivers but with CBT taken. Practice, practice, practice (weather permitting) during the winter to get ready to tour the lovely mountain areas of Wales when the weather picks up. [img][/img]

How much did you pay for yours
I have been looking and have found them to be pretty rare, except of course the dealer priced ones.

My 'new' mp3 500
I'm 43 and just bought my 'new' 2009 mp3 500 last August. I have to qualify 'new'... Okay, I see a nice Aprilia scooter on the submarine base in Kings Bay. Looks nice and good price, so I mention it to wifey. She goes on Craigslist 'just looking' and finds this one, just like we looked at back in 2009. I always like the somewhat odd look of the mp3 (less the 500s, but oh well). I go look at it and it has the trunk and tall windscreen, is in really nice shape, and the thing has only 3250 miles on it. I get a loan and the guy gives me an MSO- the Manufacturer Statement of Origin. It had never been titled! javascript:emoticon('')
So, long story longer... I read about and looked at the mp3s in 2009, and found a local dealer. Couldn't swing the $10000 price range, so I shelved the idea. Forward to 2014 and this one comes up for sale and I am handed the MSO.
It turns out the local dealer went out of business, transferred the MSO to another used car dealer here, and when he went out of business, he transferred the MSO to another used car dealer in the area, whom I bought it from. I found out that it was the same one I sat on in 2009... javascript:emoticon('')
I am pretty sure I have the only mp3 in southeast Georgia. Well, except Savannah- Chatham Police, who bought several from a dealer in Jacksonville, Florida in 2009, and is why I looked at them originally! See? Long story long... javascript:emoticon('8)')

I'm 57, live in Saint Petersburg, Florida. I had my MP3 400ie for 3 years now. My wife and I travel all over the state with our homemade trailer and 2 dogs in tow. I love my MP3!
