Default Get on your bad motor scooter and ride

Not a great photo but..........I almost pissed myself when I saw this guy on the way to work this morning. Only thing missing is the spike on the helmet

Yep, and I'm highly visible like a responsible rider should be.

Oh I agree. Kinda like the sport bikers with the Mohawk on their helmets. I need to get pic of my daughter. She rides a scooter most of the time since she is only a few blocks from work and is still using her bright pink helmet she bought a few years ago at a HD promotion for breast cancer awareness week. You can see her a mile away. I told her I was going to put a round beige band aid on the top of the helmet.

Just get the top from a baby bottle and glue it on.

On Cozumel you see whole families (4-5) on a single scooter - as well as all sorts of other seemingly impossible objects. They do have to wear helmets now, however!

Looks like it. Although now there is some company in Taiwan making fake ones that look nearly identical but perform like sh*t.

I inherited a Yamaha Vino that I don't like to ride and have been bouncing around the idea of selling it and getting a Ruckus. I'd have to get a black one so I could wear my vest and fingerless gloves.

I saw this last week and had to snap a picture. She is wearing a full riding suit, all the way down to the pink leather boots. And she does have the aforementioned helmet mohawk...

Slow as hell stock. Max out about 35. Swap in a 150 though and you will be good to go.

Don't for get the whit tee shirt and the chains to hold the vest together because your gut is too big to allow the vest to close
