    I'd also suggest 80-125 cc for 40 mph roads. I had a 150 Piaggio which claimed to sustain about 57 mph, and it was useful when I had get on the freeway for a mile or two to cross a river. But it...

    1) open garage
    2) snowblow the ice-drift left by plow

    4) give gentle gas to exit the garage,...
