I found encouragement here, through the buying process. I have enjoyed the banter, the ride reports, the "New Scooter Day" posts, the curmudgeoning, the "atta boy" posts, the photos... I got a scooter-fix each day here, even when were were off on our boat, a long ways away from the scoots.

I am having more fun on two wheels than I've had in a long time. Probably because it is just so effort-less. That shiny red scooter just makes me want to hop on and go; even when there's nowhere I have to go. Not fast (that's relative), not far.

Thanks, folks. Hope your Thanksgiving is a delight. Like many, our family tradition is having to say out loud what we are thankful for before we dine. One of those things is being able to feel like a kid again on these little scoots. The fun, encouraging spirit here is a big part of that.

Best wishes,
Inspiring post, Jim. Thanks!

I've been riding scooters and motorcycles since age 14. Now at age 71, have decided to go back to scooters again. Hopefully, a Honda Integra if they ever make it to the U.S. If not the Integra, then probably a Burgman 650, etc. Hey, it won;t be tough for me to make the switch, since I developed my love of two wheels on a 1952 Allstate scooter. It will be like a second childhood for me. I will welcome the simplicity of scooters, automatic transmission, etc, etc.
