I still believe long distance touring on a modern small scooter is possible. They seem to have one major weak point, and that is the belt. Choose a quality scooter with a belt that can be fairly easily replaced beside the road, and the tools to do it with. Everything else should be almost completely reliable. There is nothing quite like that sinking feeling when you are cruising along in the middle of nowhere, and the engine starts to rev as the scooter slows down. Kind of like a flat tire when you have nothing to fix it with.
