Who needs a GS? The guys from Motorcyclist decided to do an ADV rally on 49cc scooters: Scooters in the Sierras

All sorts of ways to have fun on two wheels!

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.

we did that when we were kids.

Great fun! Slow, but fun!


I'm a man, and I can change, if I have to, I guess.

I've been thinking of doing it on a locally developed 2WD electric moped/scooter. Went for a short ride recently on the version which can be registered for road use, which should be available in March next year. Not fast, but could be fun. And it's light enough to lift and push if the going gets too tough.

I'm thinking if I ever wanted to try something like that, an XT250 or something similar would be the way to go. Enough ground clearance to get over rocks, but small and light enough to pick up if you need to.

I rode my Ruckus everywhere. I had a blast on that thing. 5 years old and sold it with 11k miles on it. Still rode great.
