Its just as stupid on a scoot as it is on a motorcycle to ride in flip flops and shorts.

And it is for quite the same reason many feel safer in their cage than on a plane, although the probability of dying in a car are much greater than on a commercial flight; Because many people are shortsighted, and even more are just plain dumb.

I hope to pick up a scooter sometime soon. And when I do I'll be wearing no less than I do on my motorcycle.
