Fun Fun Read! Ah scooters when I am off the meds (kspike) I hate them, put them down, etc. But on meds, scooters seem so cute and loveable. I want to go down and buy one for my younger daughter who loves everthing that has two wheels. Everytime she sees a scooter she points one out to me... Great pictures, excellent article thanks.....
Nice story, Gabe. One thing seems to have changed for the worse in the last year:
I do at least one ride over to Aspen every year, oftener if I have nothing better to do. Only 75 miles but a different world.. Last year in October there were scooters parked all over the place. They seemed to be the latest "in" way to spend a bit of inherited wealth. This year, I saw only one.
I know, random sampling and all that.. There were a fair number of H-D's and BMW's on the streets also. but only one scooter (Lambretta). And only one Ducati, which is the one I was riding..
Actually, motorists are pretty cool to scooter riders (relatively speaking, of course). What motorists REALLY hate are mopeds. Mopeds just remind everyone of the 14 year old, acne covered geek EVERYONE hated in high school. You know them. People so geeky even I looked cool.
People still want to punish those geeks. Mopeds are road rage magnets.
Scooters are kind of cool and all but I don't understand why you have to waste your time logging in to read about them.Just make the article a freebee and get on with it.I send my money to Motorcycle Online not Scooter Online.I pay to this site for the bike reviews and info so would you please get off your butt and test something so I dont't mind getting off my wallet to pay for it.
