Default Re: Why not just buy a motorcycle?

I started out wanting a scooter, because they're cheap and economical. Then I found these. Even better. I do want to buy a motorcycle this spring, but even for a cheap one it'll still set me back a few grand instead of a few hundred.

I personally don't have an issue about the license and insurance. I can take the MSF riding course for $200 and skip my DMV license test. Insurance (full coverage) on the bike I want comes out to a whopping $120 a year.

But then I get half the gas mileage, and a lower coolness factor.

So why not just buy a motorcycle right off the bat? These are fun, and cheap.
