It has become an important tool to get around town, short runs to the store or anywhere that the car doesn't really warm up for saves a lot of gas. The Cadillac gets 16-17mpg when cold/warming up. Somehow the Cadillac gets does get 27-28 mpg hwy. It is kinda fun buzzing around on the thing.

Safe? Meh. What bike is safe??? When you hit something does it really matter if you flew over one of these rather than a Harley? Still, I prefer the comfort, look, and stability of my V-Star Tourer. At 6'5" @250Lbs, I would look pretty silly hovering over that frilly moped. BTW, Even my V-Star get'* 50-60 MPG depending on my demeanor of the day. And a big reason my GXP stays low miles.
