Are you considering switching to a scooter in a down economy and rising gas prices?

Many people have cars. How many people have scooters? Granted, you need a powerful enough scooter to go on highways without slowing down traffic. Scooters seem to have good milage per gallon. I have seen at least two scooters with at least 250 cc of power and being street legal in California on sale for under $1700 before tax. Who rides a scooter? Who has one that is legal on highways and registered with the DMV? Was it easy to get a class M liscence? Is your insurance pretty cheep? Have you tried riding motocycles? What draws you to a scooter instead?

WARING: For all those who may become interested in scooters, please read up your laws and make sure you are not breaking any law in your particular state. Also be proactive about saftey precautions and measures.

    And now we discover that Obamanism is just a scooter salesman who posts a bunch of threads to try to appear legitimate.

    I considered it, but seeing as I don't drive a car in the first place, it doesn't seem like I'd be saving much money in the long run.

    Whenever I ride a scooter for some reason I adopt an Italian accent and find myself saying "Ciao Bella" and using my hands a lot when I talk. Is it just me?

    I ride a scooter in the sense that my car burns them rather than gasoline. Though upgrading the fuel lines to make it work was a pain in the rear.. the little wheels kept getting stuck.

    So why does Obamanism still have thread creation privileges?
    Get on it moderators.

    Who needs a scooter? Go green - ride a bike!

    I travel everywhere I need to go via the traditional British transportation method of drunkenly crawling there.

    I'd rather bike than ride a scooter. It's less emasculating.

    In Denmark, only young people drive scooters. And they take off the exhaust to make the ###### little machines louder. They also mess with the fuel injection in attempts to make them go faster than the legal limit, which makes them stink to high heavens.
