My Piaggio scooter

Hi, my name is Dennis, and I live in Pueblo Colorado. I have been riding scooters since 2002.

My first scooter was a 2002 Kymco Zx 50, that I loved to ride. It was the first scooter that I did a full customize on. But I wanted more speed.(It topped out at 68 mph)

So I sold it in 2007 and bought a Piaggio BV 500 scooter. I absolutely love riding this maxi scooter. It is so much more fun than my 50cc was to ride. Plenty of speed and comfort for me.(I am 6'1" and about 245 lbs.)

I ride it mostly to work, and the occasional fun ride. I try to ride it year round. The longest I have ever ridden was about 400 miles round trip. And the fastest speed I have done is about 110 mph.

Did a little modifying to the motor and transmission. As you can probably tell, I like to tinker with things. Being a machinist, I like performance and precision. And I live by the saying that nothing is ever good enough.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
