That is, by far, the best looking scooter seat I have ever seen.

That looks so good as I'm freezing here!

Looking good Lost it's a freedom experience riding and everyone gets to chose for themselves the safety for their situation. Ride on, Ride on. that sure looks good!

In the first pic is that a shadow of Jesus on the wall?? Looks like he is getting ready to get on the scooter.

Wicked Like tater cheeps...

Scooters are addicting little buggers. The Vespa and the Elite are polar opposites.

Like eating potato chips, you can't stop at just having one.

I've been drooling over this builder's custom Ruckuseses this week.

Project Raucous - A Ruckus with a Honda 450 dirt bike motor.

A really sweet GY6 powered bike with custom suspension.
