scooters are different than, a swing your leg over style....m/c or pedal vehicle.
the first time i rode one, it made me feel like i was sitting in a chair, very twitchy.
it takes about 20 minutes to get used to it.
i have 4 yamaha scooters now 3... 125cc vino
1 ...50cc zuma 2
they are easier to ride double on. zap to the store.
they do about 55 mph
they get 97 mpg...
mopeds are as free & legal as they come except for a bicycle..even that has a rear light law, here.
scooters are o.k.
