Eh, it's because it's a scooter, man. That's just the way it is.

It's kind of like this guy:

I'm quite sure, most of the riders here started out or have owned a scooter at one point in time.

I can only point to the days of "rockers and mods" in early 60's europe.

One point of contention is that they are not as fast, however, everyone's bike is not as fast as others.

I'd like to hear your opines.

^this



you've got to come off the high horse man..it makes you look like a total douche.

if you want to peddle a product then become a sponsor.

lastly, this cryptic "I know something you don't" bullshit is juvenile...either say or GTFO. we dont care much for games.

even a highside on a tmax doesn't look that violent, and apparently, they don't stop for either

PERFECT!!
No - I highly doubt most people on here started with a scooter. Scooters just suck for the most part.
I agree the Ruckus is pretty sweet though.

Another thing I thought about when I saw a dude riding a baby blue scooter at lunch was this:

In western culture, women are trained to keep their legs closed. Otherwise they're being "unlady like" (read: , open for business....you get the picture). In fact, one of the key body language indicators that a woman is interested is when she directly faces her hips towards you. Anyway, you get the point: straddling things, spread legged, is for dudes and chicks who want the .

A motorcycle you straddle

A scooter you sit on closed-legged.

I luv my Zuma 70. Legs together, sack scrunched, 6 pack of beer under the seat, fat girls on the back. I think everyone hates em cause they hold people up on parade laps.
