This isn't the definitive answer, as I never traveled there but I can give a couple of tips. I've traveled in a 50cc scooter before (for several days).
The 50 cc scooter should be able to climb and do everything you want. It will just do it slower :)
Things to take into consideration:
You won't be able to make average speeds nowhere near 80 km/h, and very ...
Let me answer my own question. I just got back from the trip and I found out that motorbike rental shops are abundant in Philippines (but usually not advertised online) . The price is usually about 600PHP (12 USD) for one day.
Even in rural places where there are no renting businesses it is easy to arrange for a rental with locals.
I rented 6 different ...
I've been to Thailand renting a scooter from different hotels, agencies on different islands and they never ask you for driving license when renting a scooter. Renting a scooter is very popular and it costs only around 200-250baht/day. The only trouble is that sometimes they could hold your passport during rental period (See: How to avoid letting a rental ...
I've been to Thailand 7 times i the last 5 years, and rented scooters and vehicles many times. I've been stopped by police twice. My experience was my California DL was always accepted when renting a car. I have never been asked for license when renting a scooter, or by police when pulled over. One of those times that I was pulled over, my girlfriends ...
I've been living in Grenoble for a few years, and my girlfriend is a native from Lyon, so I know a bit the region. If you plan to take the road you put in the above link, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed by the scenic character of the road :)
You may want to go through the Vercors mountain (Saint-Gervais->Autrans->Lans-en-Vercors->Engins) or Chartreuse (...
This is a terrible idea :)
You can't travel on french highways with a 50cc scooter, it's forbidden by law. If you do that, you will likely get arrested by the police and your scooter will be seized.
You can decide to avoid the highways, so why not?
Well, a scooter's engine can only take so much drive before it overheats. Basically, if you travel non-stop ...
Try the maps from ViaMichelin http://www.viamichelin.com/
Michelin has a green line alongside scenic roads.
Besides that, ViaMichelin allows you to select motorbike, car or bike (although, be aware that bike calculations cannot exceed 200km)
What kind of sites are you talking about? Because a week isn't a whole lot of time, and there's plenty to see within Paris, which can be crossed on foot from one end to the other in under an hour :-). That said, all of what's considered 'suburbs' is easily accessible by train (metro if nearby, RER if further, like to the airports, and finally 'trains de ...
No, you cannot drive electric scooters without license legally. Before 2016 it was allowed to use electric(!) scooters with less than 250W power and 25km/h top speed, but those days are over.
The idea that scooters are exempt is quite understandable because it really seems easy to lend scooters even without license or helmet and because traffic laws in ...
Vesping Barcelona offers:
or Euro 1,600 for two fortnights for a 125 cc, unless you can negotiate something better. I have not seen mention of a mileage limitation.
Checking back in 2017 the site seems to have changed significantly and may no longer offer larger capacity scooters, nor rentals for as long as a month.
Depending on which city you are visiting, generally speaking you can use international driving license (if you have one).
The problem however lies on the human aspect.
Local police doesn't really know about this rule
They don't speak english that well.
They can be bribed...
I know many foreigners riding scooter without proper license in Bali, Lombok or ...
I have rented a scooter several times in Krabi in the south of Thailand. They don't really care about your license.
As a general rule, you can use your EU license abroad for a stay of up to 3 months. That is true in other countries that have more strict laws like Australia. Beyond 3 months, officially you must get a local license.
As for Thailand ...
Looks like there are not so much options for you. However, you can start with some routes on this site to see some basic trips made by other people. As all the social networks, the linked one eventually will be good enough, but for now it's really only a start point. Other similar site is this one, yet it also contain only routes made by other people, not a ...
As proposed by @Roddy:
I'm sure you could pay a small fortune and fly the scooter between islands. Otherwise there are fastboats between the islands -- approach any of the hundred odd operators and ask them how much extra to take your scooter with you.
So the solution is to go to the closet harbor and try your luck.
The only motorbike/scooter place I found was these guys
They have an office in Lo Pagan. Which is sort of close to the airport
You can also see some bike hire options here if you want to get your pedal on
Scooters in Barcelona
I have never actually done this, as I believe that my feet and the Barcelona metro service are the best option for touring Barcelona. However, renting scooters is yes very common, and there are plenty of sites out there for scooter rentals. A quick google search revealed these.
I clicked on a random one, set bogus dates (from 01/08/...
