3 Wheelers: Part 4 - MP3 500

The Piaggio MP3 500

Since 1882, the Piaggio Group, has established itself a leader in the two-wheeled vehicle market, becoming the largest manufacturer of two-wheeled vehicles in Europe. With names such as Aprillia, Vespa, Moto Guzzi, Gilera, and Derbi in its stables its easy to see the Piaggio pedigree.

The Piaggio MP3 500 seems to take its design ideas from a scooter, rather than a sports bike like many of the other 3-wheelers I've discussed. Available in a sports model and a touring model, both models are virtually the same in all aspects except minor styling changes. Suggested price for either model is $10,495 (CDN) and Canadians can look up a local dealer here (Unfortunately Piaggio doesn't have a universal dealer lookup or I would have listed it). 

Now on to the good stuff..

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
