I have a picture of that bike from about 16 years ago. The fuel tank is a storage space like the Goldwing. But yeah, the word scooter is getting seriously stretched all over. The big long boats coming out hardly scoot. They are motorcycles with a lot of formed plastic and automatic transmissions, and fuel tanks under the seat. Very close to being Goldwings.
