Hi, I'm a motorcycle rider who knows absolutely nothing about scooters. So I'm looking for some advice and recommendations. I'm looking for an additional bike to my sportsbike because I do a 90km round commute during the week and its racking up the k's on my pride and joy. I have my full motorcycle license. My requirements: -Storage -Enough acceleration for lane filtering, ie pulling away from cars while in the middle at traffic lights without becoming road putty. -Enough top speed for the motorway (110kmph) -Simple enough that I can do the maintenance mostly myself (I can do oil and filter changes, tension chains,lube chains, clean chains, clean and/or replace air filters. What I've been UNSUCCESSFULL at in the past, ie my limits are: changing spark plugs (frame got in the way), and I've never taken off a wheel to take it in for tire replacement, changing brake pads I can sort of do but somehow managed to stuff something up there and I had to take the bike to the local mechanic on the rear brake alone as they weren't working when I changed them. - Cheap to buy - Centrestand would be handy - Reliable - not a vespa - A belt drive or shaftdrive would be good for low maintenance but do scooters use those? What are my options for scooters? - A dealer close by, ie in the Penrith region, (I have the big 4 Japanese dealers near by as well as Aprilia and Ducati) - Cheap rego. (Is 125 still the cheapest? Or is that not enough power for lane filtering? I had a cbr125r for a while and that couldn't handle lane filtering without getting eaten up by the cars) So... advice and opinions please. Should Chinese makes be avoided? Anything I need to know? What are the service intervals for scooters? How many k's on a scooter are too many?
