    Hi,we are wanting to get a little runaround for our future trips in our motorhome ,am i right in thinking that i can only ride a 50cc moped / scooter if i want to take a passenger due to not having a full bike license.The wife & i both passed our driving test in the mid 70`s,would this make any difference to the cc capacity we could use?Any advice greatly welcomed.Kip..

    Yes.. I think your correct... 50cc you can ride with a passenger with a car license.
    Any bigger you need pass a bike test.

    50cc with 2 up can be very slow :(

    You can drive some of the scooters with 2 wheels at the front ,some are 500 cc and have plenty of power.
    Car licence is all that's required.

    I didn't ever take my Bike test either, we just slapped L plates on and sometimes didn't bother with that. As a result I've purchased one of these so that I can ride it on a car license. It's 300 cc so no lack of power. The 125 it replaced was okay but of course I couldn't legally carry a passenger. 50cc is too small for two people.

    Yes Allan but the old dear on the back is the heaviest of the four and she is less than 5 stone dripping wet, so I reckon the total weight on that Honda is about 14 - 15 stone, about the same as me on me Jack..... :rofl:

    Will this help sway your opinion?
