lifan 140 , good strong motor , last 1 i had i put 15,000 miles on b4 she was beyond repair ,

Only 15,000 miles? What happened to it? Lifans are usually great motors that last a very very long time.

And yes, here in CA a scooter is also usually registered as a Motorcycle.

And wow, 115 KPH is 71.46 MPH! That is REALLY fast on a bike of that size and nature! My stock CRF 50 does 41 MPH on GPS, which is plenty for a non-street legal machine. But I am sure I could get some mods on it and re-gear it to do 55 MPH if I needed it, but that takes away some engine life as well as reliability. I just love the way in all the years I've had it it has ALWAYS started on the first kick!
