I love death and destruction
nips no can drive....
Not thinking of buying one, but I have two that I'm trying to sell if anyone is interested.
Actually, that brought back bad memories of my 18th birthday. I was on the back of my mom's boyfriend's Yamaha 1100 when some turd made a left turn right in front of us. I catapulted through the air like Superman when he hit him doing about 30. Amazingly, I didn't get too hurt. Just some bruises and scratches. Stupidly, I got the bug to buy a pair of scooters for me and my wife with the intention of riding around the country roads out by our cottage. Once my wife found that the things did 60 and that traffic is always driving fast on those back roads, she wanted nothing more to do with riding. I must admit, I get uneasy being on a bike around cars as well. I'm just going to get rid of them.
When do the Puerto Ricans decide to buy car insurance?
When the Chinese move in.
I think landing on top of the car actually helped that rider. Instead of falling straight down to the street, he first landed on the car.
It would be cool if we could post a Jackie laugh button just like we do pics and smileys. Like choosing a button on a sound board.
Absolutely. When asked I will always choose a Hundai hood ornament enema over road rash.
Ya gotta expect them to blow the light....ride like they're tryin to kill ya...or they will
i was thinking about a scooter for the summer they hardly use any gas
Two years I've had mine.
Not even close to an accident. Just gotta be alert.
Yup...8K commuting in NJ traffic...NBD
I love mine. And I see/know more people getting them.
lol...I do have an easy 12 miles each way all on the beach.
do you need a special license or do you have to wear a helmet?
Mine get 70 MPG. But I wouldn't tool around in the city on one. Especially here in Detroit. Maybe in warm weather climates, since people are accustomed to seeing bikes on the roads, but definitely not here. The thing that sucks about scooters is the riding position. It feels like you're just sitting on a chair. When you ride a real motorcycle, you feel far more in control of it - at least that's how I feel.
Most states require a motorcycle license.
my scooter gets 50 mpg
