Mouth, think of how many beers you could put under that seat! You could even ice em up and they would be cold when you got home. Plus, there would be no beer spillage from failed bungy cords. Just sayin.... Have you tried to put wheels on one of your jet skis yet?

that scooter looks better with the roundel from the motherland on it!


why would I put wheels on a jetski charlie?!



iced down beer under the seat of a scooter would be a great benefit, but I still contend I would not be comfortable at road speeds with my feet in front of me and not firmly planted on footpegs.

You'd be surprised. You are just not comfortable enough in your manhood to scoot. The floorboards are >3' long, so people have their feet all over the place, from right under them to sticking straight out like on hiway pegs. The backrest adjusts, but most don't move it up where it belongs for them.
Most important is proper footwear, as with the last riders.

I wouldnt feel comfterble psychologically . Ive ridden scooters and without security of equal weight on either side it just feels like Im about to tip over.
Curious, how does it react when a semi blows by?

From what I hear lots of people apply for jobs to operate CNC machines but can't pass the basic math test given to prospective new hires. Mike from Dirty Jobs was on talking about the stuff the other night and he was interesting to listen too. Talked about the owner of a Catapillar delearship n PA needed 26 heavy equip. mechanics and couldn't find 1. These jobs start near $50k and with experience exceed $100k. Everybody has been convinced they aren't worth squat if they don't get a degree and sit at a desk all day. Twice as many college grads now get degrees in visual and performing arts as do in Science, Engineering, and Math.

Where are these machine shops, and what do they pay, I ain't afraid of work?

Place Im going to has a hard time finding people. Theres no shortage of jobs. Theres a shortage of people who want to work.
