Thats a beauty. I've got a 94 Helix I bought new in 95 with 65698 miles and its been in storage the last 6 years. That scooter will run forever with just regular oil changes etc.

Bv250

I just brought home my first scooter too, a 2008 BV250 that only had 850 miles on it.

Wow, I should have done this years ago...so much fun. I have a feeling my F650 Dakar may collect dust except for rides that include motorcycle-camping or lots of off-pavement time. For everything else, the Piaggio is a blast. It comfortably cruises at 60-65 and I hit 75 (GPS indicated) on a short stretch of interstate with zero drama. But even better, it's so easy to ride around town for errands: trips to the gym, the store, the post office, the library, etc...I love it.



[edit] what great timing -- my 1,000th post!

Congrats!

Scoots are easy things to fall in love with! Now you are hooked!

My guess is you may find even motorcycle camping is more fun on a scoot! Check out my thread on off roading .
