The reason I ask is I've had motorcycle for many years now. But in the past year I picked up a scooter. I really like it and I'm struggling to figure out why I like it so much. It's slower than my motorcycle, it sucks on rough pavement, it's not cool or adventurous looking like a Vstrom. But I really like it. Maybe it reminds me of my youth. My first motorized transportation was a yamaha razz. I rode the damn thing all over oahu for 2 years. All I did was put gas in it and check that it had enough two stroke oil every so often. It was slow and beaten down but to me it was perfect. I could put my backpack in the basket and go wherever I wanted. Maybe this bike reminds me of this time. I didn't worry about farkles, or performance, or the must do mods. I just jumped on twisted the throttle and I was gone.
