Not only should we have a forum, I think we oughta set up a race series. When I was in Bermuda, I saw them racing everything from pocket bikes to 600's on the local, .8 mile track. guys in leathers, dragging knee on scooters - awesome.

Whatever happened to that semi-turnaround dealy out in Naperville? What was that called?

Not since BWA went into the military, I suspect it will start up again when he gets back

I'd imagine that once gas hits $5, and then $6, scooters will get alot more popular. Look at how many threads we've gotten on them now that we're at $4+. I'd bet that many people now considering them scoffed, laughed and pointed at scoots back when gas was $2 (myself included). Money does indeed change everything

over the holiday weekend i noticed

at least 20 scooters on the road, and like 7 of them were those honda mini goldwing looking things.

scooters will be on the rise no doubt as a form of cheaper cost transportation.

I DO have a scooter, but it's been sitting for a while. Needs to be cleaned up to get running again.

Was mostly for the wife and it's barbie pink. I used it as a pit vehicle at the track.
