Over 11000 miles spread out over them...never had an issue. Should I be worried or consider myself lucky in regards to the spark plug thing?

Good report/review

The BV350 is a most excellent scooter for my type of touring as well, (save for the factory seat) and I enjoyed reading your real-world observations.

Fuel pump recall

Some Vespas were recalled for a faulty fuel pump....not sure if the 300's are included. But...the symptoms sound a lot like those exhibited by a faulty pump on modern Vespas.

Nice job!

But from a conspicuity/safety standpoint the white is far more visible. Hope you wear a brighter-than-black helmet. There's a lot of blind to PTW cagers out there.

Looks badasser in black though!...
