My primary ride is a scooter and I have a motorcycle to use as a toy for weekend rides in the mountains. For commuting purposes it's hard to beat the weather protection, gas mileage, integrated storage and flickability around town the scooter provides. About the only advantage the motorcycle has is that it's faster and has better high speed stability. If I could have only one it would be the scooter. I'm 47 and have been scooter commuting for 14 years now.
