Ha Ha, it's funny, may be it give me more fun than you could see. Not all things are absolutely right or wrong, for example, you never know what hit your face on the road. especially in summer.

Some recent changes..
Added a stripe to break up the yellow
The original plastic muffler cover had cracked at the screws and would vibrate off so I took a piece of diamond plate I
had laying around in the garage and made a new cover.



On a recent 200 mile ride ( Got 68+ MPG!!)

Where can I find out more information on the 1963 chrome limited edition Trail 55? I just bought one in very rough shape and would like to know more about it. I will probably be listing it on ebay soon if anyone is interested. Located on the Washington coast near Astoria. Any help would be appreciated.

Rented MP3 250cc in Rome




My wife and I rode around Rome for three days on a Piaggio MP3 250 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I grew up in Italy and go back to ride with my childhood buddy when I rent a motorcycle, usually a BMW for some reason, for cross country rides together he and I. Last year my wife and I wanted a few days alone together exploring Rome and the MP3 was just the ticket.





It was excellent on the rouigh cobble streets and crossing tram (streetcar) rail lines. It enabled me to keep up with the local maniacs riding the same streets on two wobbly wheels. I am not a fan of the complex technology of the MP3 as a daily rider for myself but I can see why this machine is so popular in crowded urban areas of Europe.




We took it out into the countryside and rode the Alban Hills (Castelgandolfo area) and buzzed out to Ostia Antica the old Roman port city. It kept up fine with main road traffic at 70 plus mph (110 kph) with speed to spare even two up.




However we didn't ride it on original Roman roads though I'm sure it would have done fine...






It was excellent for getting around the alleys of Trastevere at night, with powerful headlights and it was easy to park on rough streets by simply locking the wheels. Even sideways on slopes! I had to be careful unlocking it!



I did not lock the wheels at traffic lights because I found the practice rather off putting and contented myself with putting my feet down, in conventional style.




And it was as easy to ride splitting traffic as any two wheeled scooter. Great fun!
