Best scooter or small motorcyle

I'm trying to find a good size scooter or small motorcycle to take with us when we camp in our motor home. I need to be able to haul it on a hitch or bumper mount rack, of which I have seen plenty. I just want basic transportation when needed while camping, but I would like something big enough for a big guy like me to be able to take out on the highway from time to time, or if needed say for emergencies while camping.

So, I'm thinking 250-400cc scooter or motorcycle. I'm sure there is a wealth of information as always. So, what are you guys toting around for transportation. I just still want to be able to back up my motor home if needed without having to mess with a trailer/tow dolly/toad.

Suzuki Bergman 400 scooter. It is plenty big enough without being too big. Automatic trans, great fuel and will scoot down the interstate as well as the parking lots. If that doesn't work, check out the Honda silver wing.

Been looking at a couple used Bergmans. Very impressive. Very solid, but not overly heavy. Godd to hear you have had good experiences with them. Thanks.

A couple of friends have Honda Helix 250s and really like them. Unfortunately, they've been out of production for quite some time.

I had a Honda Reflex for several years and loved it. It had a 250cc engine and could cruise at 70 mph.

But you need to think about carrying it on a mount or lift on the rear of your motorhome. I think the Reflex weighed about 352 pounds dry. I weighed the front and rear axles on the motorhome and then installed a mount with a lift and put the Reflex on it and returned to the scales. I found it had put an additional 800 pounds on the rear axle and reduced the front axle by 300 pounds. I had a large diesel pusher with air ride and leveling so the weights didn't matter. I think it would have been unsafe on a smaller gas motorhome.
