Hi there every one, I was wondering if I could get some feed back from people who have purchased a scooter to do their work commute. I recently moved to the valley of the sun (Phoenix,AZ) from cleveland, ohio, and am trying to adjust to life down here. I was thinking about getting a bicycle to ride to work, (i live about 4-5 miles for work) but being realistic Its not something that I could do in the hot Phoenix summers. I don't think I could do it. I'd get hot a tried.. and wouldn't keep with it. But.. a scooter may be a solution. Right now I drive my car(i have 2, one for me; one for the wife), and with the rising gas prices, it just doesn't seem like a good asset to hold on too. A scooter gets good gas milage, is cheap, and much better for the environment. So thats my motive, What I would like to know: I was looking at a 50cc scooter from honda, will that be enough power? The speed limits on the roads to work are 35 (no hill's Phoenix is very flat), but people in Phoenix seem to think 40 is okay. Will i be able to keep up? Does any one know what the arizona law are concerning scooter? I checked the Arizona motor vehicle site but couldn't find anything. What kinda of insurance coverage do i need? What should I be expecting a 12 month premium to be? What kind of helmet laws are there? Do i need a motorcycle endorsement? I'd welcome any feed back from anyone who's tried to use a scooter for their daily life.
