I'm in northern California and have been riding maxi scooters for quite awhile.  I started with a 2002 Honda Silverwing, then got a Piaggio BV500 (which was fun to ride, but not reliable at all).  I also continued to ride standard motorcycles until last year, when I finally realized that they were work to ride, particularly with bad knees and ankles which were not compatible with foot shifting and braking.

Finally committed to scoots only.  I currently have a Suzuki Burgman 400.  I also decided to get another SWing...should have never sold the first one...and I found a 2003 SWing with few miles in excellent shape.  Love them both...

I've tried to post pictures several times, but could not do so.  Maybe now that I've checked in, I will be able to do so...
