Love the scooters but our last outing required hauling 4 firearms, all the shooting gear, targets, folding chairs, cooler and....vroom.

that's what I wanted to hear I just over think things,

Just make sure you are running at least 2000 rpm.

Toads are a pain. But if you got to have one four down is the way to go.
You can flat tow a heavier load than you can haul on a trailer. You just can't back up easily.
The scooter is an excellent idea. Anyone build a sidecar for a small bike?

I was wondering why everyone said anything but 250? It says it on the side of the bike.
