I wouldn't call it a good idea, but there's definitely something liberating about surviving a scooter ride home in a snowstorm.
I haven't given it enough credit lately, but my little Vino rocks! This 50cc wonder was my first scooter, and now, almost five years later, its the most reliable of the bunch. Its drum brakes did surprisingly well in the snow and freezing rain last week. Just take it slow and you're good to go!
