I'd be real careful with that Met in town. I used to have a 2007 Met, and almost got run over from behind so many times in town that I gave up city riding. And mine would do 40 mph. I even wired the turn signals so they worked as 4 way flashers. Maybe helped a little. But if you pull up to a stoplight on it, it is very likely the vehicle behind you is going to nail you. They don't know the difference in a 50cc scooter and a 1000cc crotch rocket, and will expect you to take off fast. I put over 10,000 miles on that Met, almost all of it on rural 2 lane country roads, where I could ride on the shoulder. The Met simply doesn't belong on the street with cars, and you can't ride it in the bike lane.
