I remember a particularly nasty get-off on my little Z-50 as a kid. My parents asked "well, what were you doing when you fell"

My options were

A. Riding standing on the seat, standing up Evil Kneivel style
B. A deer ran out in front of me
C. "nothin'"

I chose C. Backtracked to B. Never told them A.

Nice. If they were anything like my parents, they knew the truth even if you didn't tell and they didn't let on. I usually found out years later that they knew what was up all along.

Linzi, how bad did it hurt to go down with your arms stretched out behind you like that? I don't recall you separating a shoulder or anything.

I wasn't going very fast and hopped off when I realized that disaster was imminent.

Is there something I'm missing? Does crashing at 60 mph on a scooter hurt less than crashing at 60 mph on a motorcycle?

I dunno about you, but after modding my Stella its supposed to be good for 70 + mph. Anything that fast is worthy of a 'stich IMO

That's what I was thinking too. I figure that if it goes faster than a bicycle, then I'm wearing my gear.

I had checkbook in hand, ready to buy one (I think it's just about the best looking scoot on the market), when the local Aprilia dealer actually *talked me out of it* because he had problems with parts availability.





Plenty of room for a 'stich in the back, and they have such a cult following that they're easy to sell when you want to unload it.

The new chinese clone is supposed to be pretty good. TNG reviewed it in one of their recent editions.

They have a reputation for being just about the most reliable, long lasting scoot out there.

They've also got to be one of the ugliest vehicles ever created
