Scooters Rock!!

I just have to say that after only having my SR 50 scooter since Saturday, that this thing f*cking rocks!! I have only got it up to about 55-57 MPH, but that's pretty good for a 49cc engine. It gets up to 45 very easily. I have all the stores I go to regularly between 1-5 miles away and just hopping on the scooter to go pick something up is great. Much better than driving. I even took a long 26 mile round trip yesterday on it and it was awesome. I love this thing and I am not embarassed to ride it anywhere because it is so cool looking.

Scooters FTW!!!

If I go, I'll ride it there, but I don't think I can make it tonight. The wife is on vacation, so I have to watch the girls. I'll try to come for a little while though.
