Title: Re-post re Piaggio Scoots and mp3 500
Post by: tedpia on April 25, 2012, 06:34:39 AM
Re-posting [with edits] to start a new thread:

Hello all:

Pinoy scooter rider here from NYC, new member of Vespinoy via Bimbo.

I have a new Piaggio mp3 500 and I'm interested in the PH scooter scene. I'm in the NY Scooter Club and Modern Vespa forum. I also have a customized Kawasaki Vulcan 900 and I'm also with the Pinoy Riders Assn of North America (see FaceBk).

I like my scooter more now esp bec I live in NYC, tipid na sa gas, dali pa i-drive bec puede mo itaas ur 2 ft pag nasa stops or stop light ka. Di ka mapapagod. Dami pa storage. My Mods are: 14 blue LED lite pods underneath w remote; air horn; sliders. Maybe wshield & muffler later. Then mudguard saying "katas ng katas" or "puro kayo katas". haha.

Dami pala scooter enthusiasts back home and mukhang ok brotherhood nyo. More power to you all.

Fri and Sat night we have a ride and I'll try to shoot 1st time the blue LEDs I added underneath my mp3 scoot. Then I'll post pics and u can tell me if I made the right/wrong choice color.

All aftermkt lighting other than the standard red and yellow is federally illegal here. But there is no campaign against it. It just helps visibility esp when you're parked and the blind (aka tipsy revelers) run into you.

Some people don't like these lights but I guess the Pinoy in me gotta come out in some way. Kung meron lang parol dito.... haha.

Note: the lights I ordered fr Amazon are XKGlow, good quality lights that I've tried b4.

Did your right front tire hit that uneven part of the road?

salamat mga pare --- insurance hasn't even looked at it --- but the shop said $6050 to get back on the road - so most likely totalled na ito...

so most likely I am taking over the Mrs' scoot

ayos lang yan. every rider naman may fall from his ride. even the best riders fall. isipin mo na lang si rossi nga nagkakaroon ng crashes, tayo pa. ingat na lang din parati para makaiwas sa incidents like that.

Wow! buti na lang you did not hit the column. for a while I thought you will... and the soil on the plant box cushioned your fall "somehow". I remember early this year I was also victimized by a crevice on the road. Probably same speed as yours but  on a much smaller ride (Brand new PX 150 12 hours old).  Pride hurt so much that I have to get back weeks after and give the cement a finger and some nasty words. PI mo! semento ka lang hayup ka!

True story..walang tatawa masakit pa din  :'(  ;D Ride safe always! I feel for you brotha..

wala no. umalis na ako sa place of incident. di pwede ma media siempre. once is enough. pinaka masakit na naramdaman ko sa buong buhay ko. never again. kaya ngayon tamed na ako sa public road. ewan ko lang pag nakaramdam na ako ng track, baka may speed pang natitira.

12 hours old --- ouch indeed ---

Insurance guy got back to me --- Helmet and boots will be replaced 100%  yung MP3 $6,777.50 --- total - he will call me back for the cost for me to buy the salvage scoot --

so ngayon yung scoot ng mrs ko ang maging akin...  sorry about my Tagalog spelling --- Kapampangan ku kasi!

well, yeah...

yung nagpalit din ng pipe para mas malakas/maingay...
everybody will know that you're coming.
you can't sneak up on others anymore.

with the added bit of power comes a bit of loudness.

Plan ko din painstall ng pipe someday. So far yung sound naman ng nexus 500 is very tame, magkakalow tone lang siguro pag naka akra na.
