    Anyone left here?

    I've been riding bikes for 51 years and found myself trading the last one for this:



    It's a hoot! I've only grabbed the rear brake lever once thinking it was the clutch. I'm sure it will happen again.

    I live in a very urban area with freeways everywhere. After several really close calls on the freeway, I've decided not to throw myself in harm's way anymore. Since I am now confined to city streets, a scooter makes much more sense.

    Anybody home here?
