Keep your harleys, they are something different, scooter are not for everybody (just like motorcycles) so barrow your wife's 400 and see if you like it! and then buy what every it is you feel like owning

I agree. Small is good. Riding a small scooter is a blast, totally unlike a motorcycle. But get something a little bigger than a 125. I have two 125s and love them, but they do limit where you can go because they are not freeway legal. The Buddy 170 is a 125 sized scooter that IS freeway legal. There are a few others as well. You haven't truly experienced scooting until you've ridden a traditional small scooter.
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.
