Not true at all. This scooter most certainly put out considerably more pollution per mile than any new car or truck sold (including SUV's). Even more so because it's a two-stroke. Engine/vehicle...

Dang, too bad I didn't see this when it was fresh. He should've used the "Vermont loophole" and he could've got a title for it no problem. Oh well, I suppose he's rid of it by now.

That does sound nice. I'm thinking it must've been a large truck, though. We use a carrier on the back on our 4Runner. It's strong enough just using the trailer hitch but it looks a little scary. ...

Yeah, I did the Vermont thing back in about 2005 and it worked fine. IIRC, the only limitations are that the bike must be under 300cc's OR older than 10 or 15 years old.
