If I were ever to buy a powered two wheeler it would be
something stunningly beautiful:

Nope. Anything that's as old as I am, isn't exactly sexy. Besides, I
lost my fascination with motorcycles at age 18 when I lost an argument
with a large tree.

This would be more to my liking, except that I would probably wear a
helmet, goggles, and some road rash protection:

The Mini Jet Kids Scooter looks like a fun project. Nice 3D printing
job for the fan mount. Good choice of battery except it costs about
$80.

To each his own. I can maintain/repair anything on a classic
panhead Harley. I suppose you could just screen a new chip
by the side of the road...

How do they handle entering and exiting that central bike lane?

The horror! She would be so much safer taking the lane over that bridge!

Been near the Vancouver side. Visiting on my way to Whistler. Lots of
bikes in the area when I was there.

Indeed creepy. I always wondered what the fun is for a recreatinal ride on that kind of roads with cars buzzing by left and right. Would drive me crazy.

Well as far as the bridge, it's a way to get between Washington State
and Vancouver BC. I assume the point is for her to go for a ride around
Vancouver. Maybe she's going crab cakes in Stanley Park...

It's mostly a way of getting somewhere. I cross the bridge and hook up with HWY 14 on the Washington side and ride out the Gorge. https://www.youtube..com/watch?v=IjvEsJvQe5w

Very atmospheric riding over Bridge of the Gods with its metal deck that steers your bike. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYzT-C5pDlU (1:50)
