Here is the deal.
I live in Wiconsin, pretty much the shittest spot ever to find two wheeled vehicles for a decent price.
I am 18 years old, out of High School in June.
I want to get a Moped, Scooter, or Small Motorcycle. I plan to get my Motorcycle license, but I haven't signed up or anything, plus my parents really don't want me to get a cycle.
Anyways, I need something that will do 40 mph. So my dilemma is what can I do to achieve that, and the cheapest.
45 mph is even better, and I want to be safe. I don't need anything even close to 70 mph, as I will never take it on the interstate, but 45 mph would be great.
How much does cycle insurance cost in ratio to moped insurance? Do I technically need a motorcycle license to drive a 80 cc scooter?
Where are the best places to buy used ones. I have checked cycle trader, the local classifieds as well as Milwaukee Classifieds, craigslist, ebay...and I just can't find one.
I would really like to be under $300, as I have college coming up, but I will go up to $500 for a good deal.
Anything you can recommend? I don't care how it looks, as long as it runs and is pretty reliable. I have a motorized bike, so I sort of know how to do some repairs such as carb cleaning.
I am not qualified to do any major repairs, and I just want something that will run. My parents don't want me to get a cycle, but an 80 cc scooter, I could probably convince them of.
