    2nd Gen - handlebar cover removal

    Hey guys - I just traded my 2013 for a 2018. I’m trying to plug gps harness into the port under the handle bar cover. I can remove the center cover - but, the resulting opening is very small and my gps harness has an in-line “box” that needs to be hidden inside - the box will not fit through...

    Lithium ion battery

    Let's talk lithium. Who has tried one? What did you buy? Do you like it? Downsides? My 2013 stock is getting long in the tooth and I want to replace before a trip to the cool mountains in late September.

    GPS Mounts

    I know we've hashed this a number of times and call me lazy. Fine - guilty as charged. I was hoping we could get a fairly tight thread on GPS mounting. Might even merit a sticky if enough of us help! I'm getting ready for a shop day to restore my old accessories to my new/used GT. I had my...

    Replacement key

    Anyone know the procedure and a source to replace a key? The new to me GT that I just got only came with one key and that bothers me to no end. I'd like to get a couple of keys made - one spare and one to hide on the bike someplace.

    Coming Clean

    After a couple of weeks of grieving, I'm finally able to talk about my BMW. I was at a buddy's doing tire changes and a couple of other things. We had the bike on a lift, on center stand and a jack propping up the front end. But we were not strapped down... Front tire was done - should have...

    Added to the fleet

    Well, technically, I traded my MP3 for a Indian Chieftain. Still have the BMW and a BV350. I managed to show the old and the new in one photo.

    ModernVespa/MP3 Spring Gathering

    Every spring and fall, a group of us (mostly current or former MP3 riders) meet in the SE. The genesis of the group - we mostly met on the forum at, but have become great "in person" friends too. It is time for our spring ride, which if you're interested, you can get more info...

    Deer miss

    Whew - I Had a deer "near miss" Saturday night/Sunday morning. I rode my BMW up to Morgantown WV for the Oklahoma football game. Game time was 7:30, so game ended about 11:30. By the time I get to my bike, it's midnight. My motel was in the sticks about 20 miles outside Morgantown. Actually...

    Miles after fuel light?

    Okay, I've been trying to figure out how far I can go after the fuel light comes on - so far, I'm up to about 35 miles, but even then the most fuel I've been able to put in is 3.8 gallons, so I know there is another .4 gallons (~20 miles or so), at least theoretically. So, two questions: How...

    Needed a dragon fix

    So I bought my BMW in March. I was not able to take it to NC for my regular gathering in the spring, because my dash was messed up (replaced quickly, all is fine), so I rode the MP3 over, including the Dragon. I had plans throughout the summer to get the BMW over there for a couple of days...

    Football, Shenendoah, Blue Ridge and Piaggio gathering.

    So, I have a nice little trip starting 9-18. My beloved Oklahoma Sooners are playing at West Virginia on 9-20 and I have a group of former and current MP3 friends that meet in the NC mountains for a weekend of fellowship beginning 9-25. So, I figured out a nice little trip: 9-18-to 9-20 -...

    $$$, but WELL worth it!

    Well, look what met me earlier this week from FedEx: Wonder what this could be? Installation wasn't as easy as I'd expected. First of all, the Corbin instructions were incorrect - said to remove 6 bolts with hex key - my bike had 4 bolts and 2 nuts. Took some effort to get my seat off and...

    Shop day - louder horn, Admore tail lights and inside led's for top case

    Hey guys - took the BMW to my buddy's barn (Oldasdirt from fame) yesterday for some mods to the bike. OAD is a long time Piaggio guy and has a big barn full of tools and the knowledge to use them. Below, when I refer to "we", what that means is OAD doing the work and me holding...

    So, I've ridden about 1500 miles on my bike and have accepted that I need to work on the seat. I'm a, ahem, large man. I like to sit back in the saddle, so I can stretch my legs out. To have room to do this, I tend to press against the bolster/back rest on my GT. This means I'm sitting on the...

    Formal hello

    Thought I would pop in and formally introduce myself - yes, I'm a Sooner living in middle Tennessee. Got into scooters about 6 years ago with a piaggio MP3-250. I had never ridden anything before and to say I got bitten with the bug is an understatement. I just added the BMW GT to my stable...
