Scooters....Does your City have them?

Recommended Posts

My area a Pilot Project has been rolling....

A 9 year got hit by a metro transit bus...So who paid for it? How'd a 9 year get on one?

 

Might be fun to go bar hopping on them...

Yes, must have the APP on your phone to rent it and power it up. Big business is to pick them up and haul them back the their charging station. They're everywhere. And yes, people are getting hurt. Supposed to be 16 to rent one.

City no, wife yes....she broke her foot. Probably not the type of scooter you are thinking. Google knee scooter.

No, not sure about the one 60 miles South, kind of doubt it ?

 

Although It will probably make some good youtube videos.

Spent a few days in Atlanta back in May and those things are everywhere and they are left anywhere !

It's a huge litter problem not to mention the safety aspect .

You can get a DUI or an OWI if you're not careful.

Cleveland had them then banned them after pandemonium set in  then reinstated them with new rules.

I think I've seen a couple of those electric scooters shown ^^^ but they certainly are not popular in WV where we have lots of hills.

 

For transpiration those bicycles with 2-stroke motor kits bolted on on more popular, but still there aren't a lot of them.  Those giant expansion chambers near the fork look like it would burn the heck out of your knee or inner thigh if you wrecked.

 

I think of a scooter more like a Vespa, or more recently the electric scooters people ride around in the store which Walmart provides.  You actually see people using those electric wheelchairs being used for light transportation in the warmer months.

They'd get run over by black smoke belching diesel trucks around here.

We have a bar named Scooters. If you rode a scooter to it, you would be scootin' to Scooters! If you danced in the bar, you could do the scoot scooter boogie.

That was interesting,,,,,,,, i feel sick when i see trucks, there is rarely anything in them.... lets just poison the earth, extract what we don"t need, and disrupt all living things..

I'm not a huge fan either.  If you work a truck every day then fine.  If all you carry in the bed is a coat of wax, I don't get it.  Sure, you can buy whatever you want and enjoy it but for the most part I just don't see the attraction.  Gas mileage is worse than a car, they're generally not as safe.  Maintenance and repairs are higher also.

You should run for Congress, or perhaps a higher office.....

What city,I don't need no stinking city.

Actually I do have to work in the city of Portland,Oregon as a local truck driver and yes scooters and share bikes are everywhere and they're a PITA for me.

At the end of the day I get the F out of the city and back up here asap.
