Thankīs for your comments Forde.

And about your questions(wich I count to three of them)

-I use motorcyclegear(goretex). Itīs cold to sit hours still on a moped and I have chrashed on motorcycles few times and it hurts also in low speeds.

-As you, I also love the small cc touring. I ride motorcycle about 35.000kms/year and the 125 and 50cc is something to do with "back to basic" feeling? Love to travell with motorcycle, but it feels to easy nowadays.....and the scenery is not the same on motorcycle.(more time to see on moped)

-Insurance is expensive for mopeds in Sweden. 500 euro/year. I have the Zoomer in traffic only when riding touring. In two years the bike has been in traffic only 18 days. On this days Iīve road 6.400kms(In miles I thinj itīs 4.000 miles)

The Z is now sold....and Iīm searching for a new one.
