Hey, Maxi-scooters!
My wife and I have recently retired to a log cabin in Asheville, NC. In conjunction, we purchased a 2010 Silver Wing 600 and are loving it!
I also own a 2008 Piaggio BV250 (on which I put over 30,000 miles), but it is down with a broken drive belt and a shorted instrument cluster - and the last dealer, within 150 miles, just dropped Vespa/Piaggio...
My wife owns a Vespa 250 and a Vespa ET4 150.

Welcome, twdotsonjr! Sorry to read about the malfunctioning Piaggio. Congratulations on the 'new' Silver Wing and, with the Vespas, sounds like an impressive fleet. I'm a short distance down the road from you.

Welcome from Alabama.  You picked a beautiful area to retire. 

Sorry to hear about your Piaggio.  There is still a Piaggio dealer in Marietta GA https://www.mariettasportscar.com/custom-15 

There is also an independent scooter repair shop in Asheville that might be able to help you.  I just happened to stop by there on a trip last year.

Welcome from Athens, Greece.
If you need Piaggio parts I can, most likely, get them over here (there) if you're willing to pay the freight.

Welcome from just down the road, Hendersonville. My scooter buddy Driller should be sending greetings as well. He's a little farther down the road, Tryon. You picked a great area to retire to. One of my former bikes was a BV 250 but didn't put the miles on it that you have yours. Great bike, rode mine to St. Louis a few years ago for the HAMS rally.
