Hi all, long time no post.

Since my last post, I'm now on my 5th scooter. 

I traded in my original 2012 X10 350 for a Kawasaki J 300  (nice bike but too cramped, found it didn't have enough legroom in the end)

Traded the J 300 for a Burgman 400 .. great bike

Traded the Burgman 400 for a 2017 new style Burgman 400 (again, great bike but missed simple things like no underseat light, so heated grips e.t.c)

Traded this in January 2022 for a 2015 Burgman 650 executive. (even found this a little cramped believe it or not, and very heavy. Too heavy especially in town but good on the open road)

So, traded this in for a 2013 Piaggio X10 350, had damage to the plastics on one side, indicator smashed but low miles of 3,400 and a full service history.

The X10 350 is now all repaired, serviced, mot'ed, in great condition, and back on the road, and I'm using it as a daily commute.

I've found that its much smoother that the Burgman, especially the suspension. Lots better on fuel, getting around 75 mpg.

When I got the bike, I was always aware of their inherent fault of the open fuse box, so I have designed and made a plastic shielding using my 3d printer, to hopefully keep off the spray from the rear wheel getting into the electrics

and if I can figure out how, I will upload a photo of it.

That's all for now..

Regards

Dave

Thanks Dave for your interesting comments, what are Piaggio doing in the future in the UK?

Very nice. Does it go on the outside? And the cables come out sideways?

Yes, the cable comes out through the slot in the side.

It's not perfect, but much better than stock, hopefully keeping out most of the spray.
