We get to have all the fun!

:p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p

Rez is right, you have the same responsibilities on a scooter as you do on a motorcycle. Maybe you're think'n of a moped, but either way, they still have to wear a helmet by law in most states.

In CA you have to wear a helmet on anything that is motorized and not a car
Yea scooters here in SF are almost as popular as in Europe
A teacher at my sisters school has one, she lives like 8 blocks from the school so great vehicle to take
I would get one if I was going to school at a University

Peace Out

Scooters are sweet, if it were'nt for the fact that only people who've lost ther license because of DUI's were the ones that ride them, I'd get one too.

I started riding on a Honda Spree. I would log 50 miles a day exploring the country. I had five while going to ISU. Seems like everytime when I was getting on it to go home, someone had knocked it over.

They were all ripped off. I was buying them for about $200 each back then, so it wasn't too upseting. But when my Honda Aero 50 was ripped, I was pissed.

I now have a GoPed Big Foot to play around on. It's sweet and has a disc brake. Major stoppies!

When I was selling them, I came up with a great (I thought at the time) marketing scheme. The "County Alcohol and Drug" center was across the street from the dealership I worked at. I posted flyers in the lobby that said:

"Lost your license, can't get around? We can help. Yamaha Razz's can be operated without an Indiana Drivers License and no insurance. Get your freedom back. Only $1,399.00"

I sold several through that posting, but that wasn't good enough so I took it a step further. Every Sunday, the Terre Haute Tribune would list all of the people that lost their licenses during the week. I put together a form letter with the same above info, and mailed it to all of the people in the paper. It was going well until some jackass threatened to kill me if I contacted him again. "I will still drive you asshole, nothing will stop me, screw your scooters, I will kill you if you call me again".

Making $50.00 a pop just wasn't worth it so I stopped my creative campaign. I did have fun though selling a Razz to a deputy prosecutor that lost his license for drunk driving. :)
Ah the irony.

Riding a moped is like fucking a fat chick, it is fun until your friends catch you doing it!

Maybe you should get one PHI-DELT307, I hear they are easier to pick up.
