BTW what are the other things you don't miss about them?
Let me list them, the lack of a fuel gauge ( low fuel lights don't count), the handlebar vibrations, the uncomfortable seat ( coming from a Yamaha V-star 250), the carburetor, shifting gears ( fun but tedious), also the noise ( they are just too loud), just to list a few. I like that I can jump on my scoot and go. It will start right up whether it's cold or hot. Riding a "real" motorcycle is like driving a race car for the daily commute.

Over the years I have realized that every rider has his own idea of what an ideal motorcycle is. Or they haven't really given scooters a chance, maybe not manly enough.
