I've ridden probably upwards of 10 piaggio master 460 and 492 equipped
scooters, more then a few Beverly's 460, one 400 (better), half-sister
owns a Beverly Cruiser 500 (492cc), ridden the Beo 500, Nexus 500
(amazing handling), Peugeot Geopolis 400 (better then BV 400/500 IMHO),
and Satelis 500 (also Piaggio Master engine).

All in all.. the BV500 (1st version with the 460 engine and no tach) is the
worst of the lot re: handling, but has amazing ride quality/smoothness.

Pics of some of the bikes mention can be found on my picassa and flickr
accounts.

But what the hell do I know?!
