oh yeah, no one wants to look like a pansy on a scooter.

and don't get me started on the bropeds. my roommate rides an old Puch and i give him shit all the time.
Your bike doesn't make you look like a pansy. Lot's of "pansies" on motorcycles afraid to even "wave" to scooter riders for fear their image will be tarnished. Talk about pansy.

Anyway scooters can be fast and get way out front of traffic. And nothing beats them for lane splitting. But I guess that is all lost on big boys with big bikes.

A scooter is a "small bike." Or didn't you notice?

i was TOTALLY kidding about the pansy thing. hahaha just pullin your chain.

but motorcycles are faster, torquey-r, generally sit taller, louder, more maneuverable, and more respected by car drivers.

have fun on the Korean scoot.

Nothing quite like commuting through this fair city with 125cc's and 12in wheels. Traffic? What traffic? Scoots don't know L.A traffic.

Sometimes when I see really big / fast bikes on the surface streets going no faster then me I wonder why more motorcyclist don't also own / ride scooters? I understand some commute long distances, on the freeways, and all that. But I know many riders are just "around town" commuters which never take it above 60mph. Or not much. So why the huge cruiser or 1200cc bike? IF around town is your only commute?

OK, I know....i know. But at least own a little scoot. And ride it sometimes. You might find yourselves leaving your 1/4 ton+ beasts at home more often then you think :)

Bahahah... DudeClone, You do realize that most if not all of these guys/yahoo's have been banished from "normal" society long ago and that is why they reside in here. There is no chance of reform for them and your efforts to turn them are futile.
