My Father-in-law has a Honda scooter...... he rides it EVERYWHERE! Granted, he lives in a very small town in Kansas, but he even rides it between towns on US hwy 36.... no minimum speed law on those roads, since there is usually plenty of farm equipment on the roads, also. (I think his max speed is 30-35 mph...)
And.... fyi...... he just turned 90 years old.. he rode it to Mass the Sunday we were there for his 90th birthday celebration!
His scooter gets about 80 mpg.... he can carry a bag or two of groceries on it, also.
