“Dear PoP,

With the Metro fare hike looming, I am genuinely entertaining the purchase of a scooter/moped. I wanted to get a fair assessment from fellow PoP disciples on specifics like price range, insurance, DC rules on motorcycle licenses and potential places to, well, buy one. I have to commute to VA so foresee owning a 150CC (>40mph) with a rough budget of $1500 – $2200 if that seems reasonable.”

Any scooter owners out there? Would commuting to VA be a good idea on a scooter? Is it difficult to get a motorcycle license?
