Looks like the bug has bitten you, will we have to change your name to scooterman?
Are you in the Ft. Myers area?
LOL, yeah the bug maybe a little, but mostly because since being with my wife for the last 17 years, motorcycling was something that I enjoyed solo. She just doesn't and never liked motorcycles. But, every once in a while throughout those years, I'd hear her say to me or someone else that she would like a little red Vespa (I think she thinks of them as cute) but whenever I mentioned it, she would back away. The price was right, so I thought I'd surprise her with it, and it worked, she loves it. By me getting a scooter and scooting around with her on these little scooter excursions, its a way for me to finally do some two wheeling with her, even if its only doing 35 to 40 mph.
I have found that surprisingly I do enjoy it thou, its very different to me than a full size bike, so maybe the bug. But, I still enjoy the big bikes considerably more, scooters could never replace that enjoyment. My biggest worry with a scooter is being run over, they're slow and tiny, so very limited on riding locations like the ones I mentioned. She's still in training thou, not ready to do battle with traffic yet, but she is getting there.
I'm in the Brandon/Riverview area on the west coast, just south of Tampa and north of Sarasota. These Islands that I mentioned are all a half hour to a 2.5 hour drive from our house, so not too bad.
