Next year i will be 16, therefore meaning i can get a moped/ motor scooter or wait to get a car. I will be then going to collage and therefore having to think about transport I am going to be picking 4 art subjects meaning i will have to have huge portfolio folders. I can easily sling the folders over my shoulder (using straps) and commute from collage and back fairly easily. However i will have to consider the weather and the risk of getting wet on the way to college But over all this will be cheaper and i will not have to commute people back and forth from places.

Then i have the option of taking a bus or car. Meaning i wont risk my artwork getting ruined. I will also be warmer in the winter and will be able to ride with friends (on a bus)

I love motorbikes and really want to have one of my own however at this moment in time i am not sure which one will be better. Please can you help me out, do i do something i love and enjoy the ride to college or do i go with not getting the bike but then knowing my work will be okay.

please give me advice! Thanks

What I have see on many colleges is pedal bicycles, near to the buildings, while motor vehicles must be parked in a lot and you walk. Same as riding a bus. The Feds have defined an electrical bike, 1000 watt max, 20 mph max, as being the same as a pedal bicycle — no license, no insurance, etc..

What is a "Moped/ electric scooter" depends State. In California any sit on powered two wheel vehicle is a motorcycle and requires a motorcycle license. But IMHO if you are looking at a "Moped/ electric scooter" that is able to 30 mph, you might as well get a 125-150cc scooter and keep up with speed of traffic.

If you enjoy being outside, get the scoot. You can wear rain gear and ride full time.

Rona Lachat:
You can ride the bike on the nice weather day.
You will not need to take your portfolios EVERY day to and from school.
Bad weather days ride the bus. Suggest before you start out you visit the campus and ask some of the other students what they do to keep their portfolis dry. The fun part of the ride soon ends when it is a daily nesessity of just getting from here to there.
Particularly on a heavy rain day.

Just a note these things can be easily stolen. Park in safe areas.

Katie:
Go by bus, as a lot of college's have NO parking for students and what they do have the staff have to fight over.

Cars ain't pretty expensive in USA… while the public Rapid transit is rather reasonable.
