A Tri-glide, three wheels for me. But right now I'd settle for a cheap Ice Bear three wheel moped.

Ok, something different.

The Honda SH300i in considered a scooter, but would be licensed as a motorcycle in the USA. It's the 9th most popular "scooter" in Europe based on registrations. It has a 279cc water cooled, fuel injected motor that puts out 27bhp at 8,250 rpm and has an estimated top speed of 90 mph, with fuel efficiency around 65 mpg. It is manufactured in Italy.

Honda has never brought the SH300i to the US.

For one year (2010), Honda distributed it's smaller brother, the SH150i in the US.

It's the 4th most popular scooter in Europe, based on registrations. It has a 153cc water cooled, fuel injected motor that puts out 15.5bhp and has a top speed of 65 mph. It is classified as a motorcycle in the US and is Interstate Highway legal. It gets fuel efficiency in the ball park of 83 mpg.

I own one of these. In 2013, when I was researching scooters, I decided on one of these. I found one that I liked with 800 miles on it in Kentucky, went and got it.

I love the darn thing and use it for a lot of my around town trips, but I'd prefer to have it's big brother, the SH300i.

Like all scooters, the top speed of the sh150i is not maintainable under all conditions. Climbing hills and or driving into head winds can slow you down to 55 mph or even a bit less.

Except for 2010, Honda has imported all of their scooters from Taiwan. I strongly prefer the European design of the Italian scooters, plus they perform better.

Unlike other scooters being marketed in the US today the sh150i and sh300i don't have a bunch of extra unnecessary plastic. They are sleek, functional and light weight, with larger wheels.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

My Bro-in-law's bike would be awesome as a permanent second bike. Currently 'babysitting' it for a few years while he is out of country. It is a Honda still- a CBR1100xx Super Blackbird. Absolute KICK to ride as long as that ride is an hour or less long...

Damn, the torque and acceleration is fearsome!!

Vote one for year-round riding! Austone Darksider PVT (Passenger Vehicle Tire)

Most recent Wing: 128k+ on the 2000 GL1500 SE (Just totaled) due to being rear-ended...
Current ride (for now) 2015 Triumph Trophy SE

Previous wings: '78GL1000, 13k mile '77 GL1000 (resto at home, neat story!), '81 GL1100 Interstate.
Previous non-wings: CB360T, Suzuki GS550L, Yamaha 650 spcl (first bike!), Silverwing 500, Yamaha Spectre 1100, VFR700F, CB900 Custom.

Did a lot of miles with a Double Cross bike. Along side, in front or behind.

Yes it was very fast, but I don't recall Todd ever complaining about the comfort of the machine. We did some pretty long days.

That's Frank (known here as Pegasus) on the right, and Todd in the red. We were in Arches N.P. at the time.

If I won the lottery, I'd have a Lightning Electric 218 !!
Even quieter than a Goldwing. Totally silent in fact.
And fast as all HELL!! 218 mph top speed.
It would probably kill me, but I'd die with a smile
on my face!

Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience every time.
