Scooters or mopeds2011-07-08 13:13:09 by BigOldCar
You don't need an endorsement to operate a moped. A moped has pedals and less than 50cc, and a top speed of under 35mph.
Scooters are larger and require a motorcycle endorsement. They have higher top speeds, but interestingly, smaller wheels. Also, no pedals.
Scooters and mopeds have no real "ropes" to show--they are small engines and automatic transmissions (or just one speed). Mopeds usually have two-stroke engines, which means you have to mix two-stroke oil into the fuel you feed it. But on the bright side, there's no oil to change out of the engine--really there's like no maintenance required
