I want to see you with drax0r riding bitch! Yes you will get noticed. Looks like great fun. I love the commuting idea. I hate the exploring Texas's back roads idea.

When do you take delivery? Will yours be blue too? Thats a really good look'in scooter!

I don't really care what color it is, but yes the blue is inoffensive. Wife's going to crunch some numbers - we both raises this month.

Be sure you also purchase "a correctly sized" helmet.

Ok.....what is the company name of the scooter you went to look at yesterday sir??? I want to look into it for Glo and myself as well!

Also......Glo asked me to pass along the fact that it was originally HER idea about the scooters so she would be the trend setter!

I give glodowg her props in my opening text. But sitting in a car driving down the highway in the HOV lane a trend setter does not make. No one sees her behind the wheel and thinks, "Wow - I should do that too!" No sir, the real trend setters are those who haul their fat ass over the saddle of a tiny 4-stroke engine and brave the elements on the side road. In this case, she is my muse - my inspiration! If you two get some, we'll have to start an Anna Rider's Club!

Why, do you think it is to hot for parks and picnics in Texas. Maybe you are right. The moped I am looking at is $1,600.00, I truly want your thoughts, have you lived this situation? Eric's would be for commuting, mine would be for recreation, we have a track across from our house, I always want to go 4 wheeling.

I had my motor cycle for a few years. I loved it because it was exhilarating and wonderful to explore the world on it. There was another thing that happened at least once every day I rode it…. Some jackass on a cell phone, or other means of having their head up their ass, nearly killed me! In an accident the bike never wins, ever! It does not matter that “you” had the right of way or were correct in your position you're still DEAD. A big bike is easier to see, is louder, can accelerate or otherwise perform its way out of potentially “bad” situations. A scooter is going to be challenged on country outings especially with passengers. I think a scooter is absolutely ideal for Eric’s commuting situation. I think scooters for family adventures out on the back roads of Texas is something less than ideal family recreation. Just my opinion. Hey, you could always get the first one and see what you think over time about getting another. The scooter Eric is looking at certainly is not too big for you to drive so you can see if you want to get another for family adventures. Maybe you will decide you have bigger balls than me, after all I am a man of abundant caution. ;-)

While you always overly weighed risk vs. reward, you're also no fool. I heavily considered my route, hours of travel, and alternate routes - all without touching highway, and most with acceptable visibility. And with me off the road, my safty increases tenfold:
