Like 16in or less doughnuts on maxi-scooters or "real" bikes?

Cool

How fast do you need it to go? 50cc usually only do around 35mph.
125cc around 50-55mph. Yamaha would be my first choice although the Burgman is also good.

Matters on what you want to do... scooting around college campus or going on a coast to coast tour? (yes you can do it on a scooter)

Unless I need to get around on a large university campus, no scooters for me; I'd rather be on a motorcycle. The closest I'd go is a Mana 850.

That's an easy quesiton. A Cushman Airborne two-seater. 50 mph top end, and you can tow a DC3 if you have to. Look in the motorcycle test section to see one.
