80 miles per gallon - at the cost of your neck

scooterThe local news ran a story tonight on Scooters. They showed all these happy people - all women - zipping along in their new scooters, mostly made by Honda (Silver Wing shown). They were all laughing and having a good time.

Granted, while they need only one gallon of gas and get monster mileage, these things are terrible.

First of all, you can't drive them on the highway (Thank God). It's illegal in all states in New England (to the best of my knowledge) to pilot one of these on a highway - even limited access highways.

Secondly, you don't get any respect from anyone driving a scooter. This is the USA. We like big cars and big engines, mileage be damned even with the costs soaring as they are. During the run of the story, the women - women - driving these things said they were getting high fives from other motorcyclists. Bull. I don't believe that for a second.

Third, this vehicle is completely useless when there's snow on the ground or when it's raining.

Fourth, this is a fair-weather-only vehicle. If it's not bright, sunny and dry out, you can't drive it anywhere. And no, don't try driving one of these at night. Bad idea.

Fifth, this is a two-wheeled vehicle. Unless you properly know how to drive one, you can get hurt real bad and/or killed riding one of these. I'd rather keep my crumple zone equipped truck, thank you very much.

Don't believe the hype. Keep your car.
