I'm not sure if you have ever riden a scooter, I find your statement to be pants! People, i would think, who choose to ride Mopeds MAYBE lacking with mechanical knowledge. But i along with 93 members of my scooter club would tend to disagree. Oh! Just to throw the dog a bone, Stellas are shite.

I agree. Furthermore I have trouble understanding how you manage to breathe and regulate heartbeat at the same time, not to mention clutching and shifting.

See, I'd be just as mechanically incompetent on a motorcycle as a scooter.
