Wow, I should have done this years ago...so much fun. I have a feeling my F650 Dakar may collect dust except for rides that include motorcycle-camping or lots of off-pavement time. For everything else, the Piaggio is a blast. It comfortably cruises at 60-65 and I hit 75 (GPS indicated) on a short stretch of interstate with zero drama. But even better, it's so easy to ride around town for errands: trips to the gym, the store, the post office, the library, etc...I love it.
 what great timing -- my 1,000th post!
Scoots are easy things to fall in love with! Now you are hooked!
My guess is you may find even motorcycle camping is more fun on a scoot! Check out my thread on off roading .
Make sure to post stories and pics of your rides. We love pics!
