My mental response is "thank god it isn't" and if/when I make a verbal response it would be more along the lines of if I wanted a Harley I'd buy a Harley but I choose my ride.

As one guy said being old means I really don't care what others think. Even the woman are going easier to please. You took a bath, Do you need any vagia? Oh good it still works. . When ever someone says I ll race you I go if I get off the line first and stay there for 30 feet I win. Any scooter can do that do to weighing under 250 pounds. You can even beat a million buck car off the line with it before you start eatting it's dust 4 seconds latter.
Yah being old is fun because we understand that yes we look like a cross between bigfoot and chicken with it's head cut off. and it really doesn't made one dam bit of difference to who I am. All that madders is that I really LIVING LIFE AND NOT JUST FAKING IT.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out shouting WHAT A RUSH, WHAT A RIDE.

I was born in the Tri-Cities. Never a scooter rider while I lived there, but I can see how the Good Old Boys would take to heckling a scooter rider.

I haven't been a scooter rider long enough to hear any comments, but I have some pretty good comebacks, should I feel the need. After riding motos *and* scooters now, I can say they both have their place, and they're both more fun than driving a cage. Eff'em if they don't like your ride.
