I did not see any motorcycles at all the last 1000 miles of my ride to Hyder Alaska this September.
6 days from San Francisco to Stewart BC and Hyder AL on my Vespa 300HPE. Top speed 80mph
but stayed mostly around 70mph. 64 miles to the gallon at that speed. Total trip 4,544 miles. 16 days.
I also have 2 motorcycles but they are all different in style and riding characteristics. This scooter
trip was to celebrate Vespa's 75th anniversary. More fun in some ways than on my Alaska trip years
ago on my BMW 1200 HP2. You can't compare apples and oranges, just enjoy the meal. More riding,
less talking.

I don't know why not. What's your poison?
I have 4 of them an that's all I've been riding since last spring when I dropped a dresser on my clutch foot tryin to do a wheelie. (1100 lbs of Road King ain't nothin for a 170lb guy to be hoggin around with).

Mine are all pre-1985, so they're all manual and 225cc's go a long way on a small frame. My fastest Vepsa is a Melosi kitted P200E and I got it up to 98 MPH. I'm sure it can break 100.

I also have an air-cooled 911 and I can say attest with utmost certainty that the Vespa wins in the chick department. It might have something to do with their non-threatening demeanor, their cuteness or just good vibrations, but they'll just jump on without even asking.
