I was all set to get a Yamaha Morphous when Husqvarna made the TEs street legal. did i mention yet i have new TE250?



google up some of the custom Morphouses in Japan they are outrageous... or is that Morphus? i forget...



I don't understand why more people don't ride the big scoots in mediterranean climes like SoCal. O, gas used to be so cheap why bother. i fear those days are done.

Scooters are cool.



That said, I'm mystified why they can't be made to look more like real motorcycles. A lot of people are put off by shifting, but don't like the scooter look - there's a huge untapped market here.

I would love to buy a Honda Supercub in a 125cc version. It was a great idea when introduced as a 50cc bike and would be even better now. In Texas, 50cc is just not enough power but 125cc is a good compromise between speed and economy.

Because you can't flap on your cell phone and ride a scooter at the same time.

Sure you can flap on the fone and ride a scooter. Boat-style swivel cup holders would be *****en also...

I agree. I was just reading that Honda had sold its 50 millionth Super Cub recently, and was thinking it would be nice to have one for my five mile commute.

It's not a skirt, it's a kilt!

I saw a guy eating a sub sandwich yesterday on his scooter, cutting through traffic. Scooter riders are frequently completely insane.

One of those zipped past me on the freeway a few months ago. I'd never seen one before.
