I think the add-on companies have been studying this thread. I found this today, and it looks like the perfect way to keep those michevious sticks from jumping up into your brake assemblies. It's sort of like the cowcatcher of the scooter world...

Plus, just LOOK at that modern styling. That scoot will never look sexier.

Paint looks great! The side case mounts are they the ones made by Fehling? Are they the 250 models sold by Twisted Throttle or the 400 model? Some have posted problems with the 250 model damaging the 400 air cleaner when installed on one. What saddlebags do you have and are they color-matched too?

HIP, HIP, HOORAY! The repairs to my arm while not exactly 100% are close to 95%. Which considering everything isn't too bad. In fact the arm is good enough that I completed the repairs on the MP today.

Some things have changed since you may have last seen my trusty ride. Some of them can be seen and more can not be seen. But I will let you see for yourself.


What do you think?
Thanks for coming by the shop today Ralph. You're MP3 is by far the cleanest and most dialed in 400 we've seen. The mods are seamless and the attention to detail deserves a medal. It's how MP3's should be done... definitely setting the bar high for others to achieve my man. Good work!

That, young lady, is an unbiased opinion. You need to check out the Motoretta Atlanta Facebook page.

No need for brooms or cow catchers either.

I had my ECU update done and it seems to be running better.

Ponyrider,

I am just catching up with my reading on here and read about your accident, I am very sorry to hear about it. But very happy to hear that you are ok.

Recently a rider from my club went down on a ditch same as you from the pictures, he was the tail gunner on a ride ( I was not on the ride) and he rolled. He did not survive the crash.

It has brought about a renewed awareness to me about safety and not get complacent when I ride.

The colour of your Scooter is just amazing.

Ride safe.

I'm new here and browsing threads.

I'm sorry for your injuries and and very glad you're doing better.

Did they leave any hardware behind? I have pins, plates and screws in my feet, and two titanium hips. I pretty much set off every metal detector within a couple miles.

Your spiffed-up scoot looks great!

Thanks for the thoughts. My healing is progressing well since the screws and plate were removed. I completed rehab about a month ago but continue with many of the exercises. I have a lot of metal in my body as well. I now get the full personal scan at the airport also.

Thanks for the comment about the scoot. It really does look better in person.

Where are you at in Ohio?
