Due to increased number of accidents involving scooters and idiots, we must increase our production by ten times to meet the added demand on top of demands of the US market, wanting cheap scooters.

In order to achieve our goal, we will do anything and everything,,,,.

Like cutting corners with less welds, using less quality parts and such,,,,.

SMAC (Scooter Manufacturing Association of C***a)



Just kidding,,,,

Our family is new to scootering but not new to biking,, that video shows lots of fools on these things....

I did notice there were a lot of center stand skid outs... that seems to be an issue with these things....

Hard to blame poor manufacturing when the riders lack any sense of their surroundings.

China usually manufacturers crap, but you can always count on humans to be idiots.

Lesson I took from this vid:
Don't ride on two wheels in Asian cities.

I wouldn't ride my scooter (or motorcycle) here in Chinatown or Koreatown either.

Wow! Over 1/2 the accidents looked like those I've seen involving road bicyclists...completely their fault by acting like they own the whole damn road and never yielding or following applicable trafic laws.
