    2nd Generations Scooter Quesitons

    Hey guys, I'm still an occasional lurker. Question, I haven't kept up with the second generation scoots, any big issues?

    For those that aren't members of the G+ site; I know a few of us visit both places. How long can I hold out? With winter coming, these things will be dropping in price.

    Do we have a C series Guru? (and you tube thoughts)

    Just thinking about that as a often read other bike specific forums. Some of them have a guy who seems to know/do just about everything. Diagnoses problems just from description and despite others' objections, turns out to be correct. I do think there is a collective knowledge on here that is...

    Emergency Braking: Scooter vs Motorcycle

    Twice in the past three weeks I have activated the ABS, deer running crossing in front of me. Funny thing, only once in my previous 4 years had I even seen deer on a ride. So, I grab both brakes slow waaaay down, then let both go and keep moving without missing a beat. How about on a...

    California Highway 1; Pacific Coast Highway

    I have a trip in the works later in July. Originally my wife an I were going to ride 100 miles from Monterey to Cambria, or vice versa. The plan has changed, we will be staying in the Cambria, Morro Bay area the whole time. We just had our 20th anniversary and she has agreed to use the scoots as...

    Are the BMW scooters more expensive to maintain? A real discussion.

    I think it is important to make sure facts are clear before everyone decides to jump ship. I too am amazed at the cost of maintenance, but how do these scoots compare to other bikes? In order to make a fair comparison, we need to try to compare apples to apples as much as possible. By that I...

If you guys are here, speak up; that would make 6 of us in...

    I might add another scooter to my stable, your thoughts.

    So I sold my Aprilia scooter over the weekend and there is an empty spot in my garage. I've been mulling over the possibilities. What would you do? 1. Piaggio BV350; I really like it, almost bought one instead of the C600 back in 2014. Now it has ABS and would make pretty much the perfect...
