Be glad you don't have to deal with dangerous elements such as snow and ice... or even salt.
this winter I have gear up and thermal layers have been added, so in body it is all good, the bike takes time to warm up and I must not use the stock light since it will take longer to start. I do have a kick start option that I have never use..

Well the last 2 days have been above average and no need to complain no more, it will go back to average and then below average... so I went on a ride today

Cheers, I hope you get spring early!!

Yes, Scooters really stink on poor roads. Small wheels even more so than poor suspension, seem to be the biggest culprit. My motorcycles are so much better on crappy roads than any of the scooters I've owned. I bet the new Honda maxi with big wheels does well on crappy streets.

This scooter can go fast on bad roads even though it has 10 inch wheels. The swingarm lets the rear wheel move while the motor stays still. Too bad this idea was dropped long ago.

I guess that one just adapts to suit the prevailing climate, and temperatures?
