Scooter instead of toad

Anybody have an idea or opinion on getting a small scooter for the 30ds what about a carrier and how much weight can the hitch handle
And are they good for around town 2up riding
I have been riding for 30 plus years but never on something this small

No body does a search - just did an entire thread on these 2 exact subjects. I manufactured my own dual receiver rack. Fabricated Motorcycle Rack

INHO, the only scooter to get is a Honda PCX150. I've had a few others and they suxx. The PCX150 is basically a small mc that is rated at a top speed of 70mph, but actually is only capable of 64 wide open. Unlike evry scooter that should not be run out of the 20-35 power setting, the PCX150 is designed to be and is fabulous from 0-50! It has a constant variable "TX" vs a single gear designed for 25mph. It gets 75mpg @ 64 and 150 around town, averaging out at 100mpg! I have no Honda affiliation aside from owning 2 MCs and 2 cars.

I too thought about a motorcycle. I started off on dirt bikes as a kid and quit riding about 6 years ago after moving to the FL panhandle (worst drivers EVER). Last bike owned was a roadking classic.

My thinking was somthing like a Suzuki DR 650 dual sport.

Unless you are talking about a maxi scoot I wouldn’t recommend 2 up on most scooters out there unless it’s an adult and a kid even the larger 150 are only meant for 300 lbs of passengers

I personally am a fan of the 2 stroke genuine Stella. But it hasn’t been made new sense 2009 or 2010. It’s a made in India clone of the old Vespa 150 4 speed scooters

Just keep in mid a few (very few) campgrounds will not allow any type or gas powered scooter or motorcycle operate on campground roads.

I looked at several scooters and finally opted for a Yamaha TW200, more like a "real" motorcycle and less than 300lbs.

Nice, had no idea, but not a fan of dirt bikes or croch rockets. Not familiar with Yamaha.

If it's street legal and registered, it should be treated like any other motor vehicle.

Actually the campground we have our camper at right now you have to park them at the gate
If it’s a private campground it’s private property so there rules
