I can't believe I'm actually posting here. After years of my trying the Udder Half has continued to insist she is not interested in bikes - or scooters. So this afternoon, out of the blue, she tells me that her and a friend are planning to buy a couple scooters and are going to start looking tomorrow. Not sure it will get lots of use - thinking they should look at used first. I gound Apprilla, Geely, Strada, Verrucci, Derbi, Kymco, Vento, Vespa, Honda, Yamaha, Chituma, and some other off-brands (which may not be off brands in many other countries!). I believe in Honda reliability, and have also been very pleased with Yamaha motorcycles over the years - both reflect the name price - but are they worth the extra? The Vespa is a classic... but worth the extra for a no experience, occasional ride to the store or gym, scooter? I think she wants to do this on her own - so I will give some basic input and keep out of it until asked. I want her to ahave a good experience - low maintenance, ease of operation, etc..., so that I can gradually get her into a motorcycle... or not! What should I look for?? Help!!
