I also live just a few miles from mountains, I'm at the base of the mountains that go up to Payson. It's a great motorcycle ride, but the Vino just won't do it. I really enjoy riding in the mountains, and would love to have a scooter that would be rideable there. It's not so much the 30 mph that bothers me, but the fact that the engine is turning so slow while climbing at this speed. I connected a portable tachometer to it, and it is turning only a little more than half the RPM while climbing step grades that it is at full speed on a flat road. That has got lugging the engine like crazy. Not wanting to destroy my engine, I turned around.
