Hey guys

I've got a 2007 Piaggio Beverly 250. I have been struggling with the height of the scoot. I recently almost fell off because I had to tip-toed at an emergency stop, and lost my balance. The Bev started falling towards my right side but with only able to have toes on the ground, it was a mammoth effort to eventually regained balance at a cost of an overstretched calf muscle.

So I contacted my dealer to check out options on lowering the Bev. He said he's still trying to find a low profile tyre for the Bev.

Does anyone know any low profile tyre for the 2007 Bev 250?
Thanks in advance.

Shaving the seat foam both for height and width would help the most. Plus some high-soled boots.

What he said.

I own a pair of dansko shoes and they are super thick soled and will add inches to your height.

yup, seat shaving -- inexpensive, just remove the staples to the seat cover and use a blade and some sand paper to re-shape...remove 1" and re-staple the cover.
