My congratulations to the aging "scooter trash". Bet you had fun.
Alas, at a mere age 69, I don't think I'd enjoy buzzing along at 45 mph. I much prefer to be overtaking the Peterbilts on one of my full size motorcycles (mostly a BMW, and a Ducati, also recently a 1970 Triumph T100C), not have them coming up fast in the rear view mirror. Maybe in 10 years I might feel different.
I admire these folks but I have to admit I am a bigot towards scooters. Yes I have ridden one... I think it's not having anything between my legs and the cute little wheels that I am against. boy doesn't that sound weird... the first part of that I mean..
Just when I think I am about half-tough some group of oldsters on scooters goes and make me feel like a ninny - I always thought I would ride across the country on a Capt. America replica, but now I have no interest because my ass can't take it -
