The reason I bought a moped was because the closest place that sells the brands of scooters I like are 100 miles away in boston. The only ones sold around here are Honda's, which I think are the ugliest scooters in the world, if you look at any Italian brand or even Kymco or Yamaha scooters. Plus mopeds are cheaper, even brand new for $900 like the one I got. New motorcycles are almost as ugly as new cars. They have absolutely no individuality, they just look all the same. The only kind of motorcycle I would buy would be a cool early 80's BMW, Fuji, or honda or the like, cause those bikes look awesome. I can only imagine that mopeds AREN'T cool with chicks because you can't carry two people on most mopeds, they're loner vehicles. Scooters are beautiful, mopeds are like ugly, greasy, naked scooters. But at this point, any motorized Two-Wheeled vehicle to me is just a bad idea. They are just SOOO unreliable; I wouldn't trust my groceries or getting to work on time with my moped or ANY moped. On the other hand, the only real problem a bicycle could have would be a popped tire...But you can carry all the tools for a quick tube patch or replacement on you on every bike ride (patch kit and spare tube is all that's required). A moped getting a flat on the road is a disaster...you would need wrenches, tire spoons, a nice flat, clean area to work and take off your various parts, and a good amount of time...and all that is not even mentioning if something goes wrong with the engine...the only thing a moped has over a bike is the sweat and the speed. I think I'll just stick with my hatchback which gets 35 miles to the gallon,(which I was surprised to learn recently is about as good a sport or touring motorcycle) and is always reliable.
