That's sad. I can't imagine being without a scooter. If I ever do get rid of mine, it will be to get a bigger scooter. I have six bikes, all registered, insured, and ridden. They are all paid for, the registrations are cheap, and so is the insurance. For all 6 bikes, it costs around $300 a year to insure them. And I have room. The Vulcan is in the garage, the Goldwing is on the back patio under a cover, the XT225 is in a shed in the back yard, and the 3 scooters are in what used to be the living room, but is now the "scooter" room.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
