I always say yes, with the caveat that you must be willing to learn.
People are typically looking at mopeds to ease into 2-wheels. Which they are great for. Simple mechanics, light weight and low power is not intimidating, etc, etc.
That said, I have met many people who have really really wanted to ride mopeds, but just weren't meant for it. Riding is a skill, and while it can be taught, some people just are less capable.
