That's my take!
ABSOLUTELY! I lived in Key West for a few years. All the tourists there rented those 150cc wanna-be-Vespa. How hard could it be? It isn't like it's a REAL motorcycle. SO off they went in a swimsuit and flip-flops. Seemed like everyday I saw one of the dopes catching some nice road rash.
