Great video. Scooters did go out of style for a while, bit they are back in a big way, and for many of the same reasons. They are clean, stylish, easy to ride, get great mileage, and are very attractive to many who wouldn't dare be seen on a motorcycle. Todays twist and go scooters are even easier to ride than the old manual shift ones, though to me not as much fun. I see a bright future for scooters in the future, that is if the Chinese junk doesn't ruin their reputation as reliable dependable, and economical machines for both fun and transportation. There are a lot of scooters around here, sadly many of them are Chinese. Those first Vespas and Lambrettas were probably a lot more reliable than todays Chinese stuff.
