$1700 for an underpowered, silly little non-chick impressing scooter?!?! I think naught! I'd just wait another 8 to 11 years 'til I could buy a ratty, high-mileage SV650 instead for around (inflation factor considered) the same sum.

I would never ride a scooter, I just couldn't stand the thought of being called "SCOOTER TRASH"

Default too much free time on my hands...

This morning I turned on my 'puter,

and immediately went to M-O.

A story was wrote 'bout a scooter,

which was deemed to be pitifully slow.



But what of the frightened beginner,

for whom anything else seems too fast?

Would they be considered a sinner,

if in stoplight GP's they ranked last?



As sure as a heat wave in Yuma,

they'll desire a good deal more poop,

And thanks to the sluggardly Zuma,

a new rider will soon join our group.

Default Re: Quick rundown for this year's 600 test

The very first street bike I rode was my old man's xs650! I thought it was pretty dang fast -- I was only about 15. My dad put a pretty cool 2 into 1 pipe on it so it did sound pretty good. It got really cool when he put a flame job on it. However I do remember almost giving a toyota an enema because the brakes sucked.



Yeah, you always remember your first.

I've never dreamt Yuma would reach such lofty literary heights.



Way to go, Itchface!

Default Re: No scooters for this born in the USA kid.

I definately agree with you that downtown Chicago is very receptive to scooter usage. I have considered getting one for usage downthere, alas, I would have to commute from the suburbs so it would be a little silly. I do see many down there on smaller scoots though.



Saw a guy on a Silver Wing a couple weeks ago, and danced up LSD with him...that twist and go has suprising accelleration. I asked him why he didn't get a bike, and he shrugged, smiled, and said "I hate shifting." Go figure.
