which can be ridden in a dress. And you - shock, horror! - put on a proper pair of shoes to ride it.
Scooters were popular with mods precisely because they could ride them in suits - and any business dress would do fine too.
My sister-in-law, a hospital consultant (and you don't get more 'professional' than that), does fine on a motorbike without a ponytail. Medium length hair, fairly thick. I suspect she takes a brush or comb with her.
34. I love you guys and gals who can ride bikes and or scooters
myself I always wind up in a heap somewhere with road rash covering too much of my bod ie. But seriously when I was a kid I had a cushman and rode it everywhere with only a couple small mishaps but for some reason when I get on a real motorcycle I wind up with that thing, me and the road in way too intimate of a relationship for my liking.
but that's just fine for inner city errands. Two collapsible wire baskets on the back hold 2 full canvas grocery bags and are even the right size for the clamshell tray from the Chinese takeout place. I've also carried 2 cases of soda on the foot rest, but I don't recommend it.
I'd bike if my health permitted it, but it doesn't. The scooter is a great alternative and allows me to arrive refreshed instead of sweaty.
If I could afford one, I would get one. I have one of those original model XTreme scooters:
I really like it but I bent the rim on the back tire and am too lazy to have it repaired/replaced. It got bent because I was an idiot and messed things up when I changed the back tire after the inner tube blew out. Long story short - I went back to walking.
Just the same, If I could afford one of those egovehicles, I would get one. Those are nice.
27. Will it go 75 mph on my 15 mile commute everyday with 18 wheelers
and all of the usual traffic I can expect on RT 80 Eastbound, or RT 46 or RT 10 Eastbound, the ONLY ways to my job, on major highways? And what about like this morning when it was 26 degrees when I walked out the door? And I weigh 220 lbs and am blind in one eye, should I wear an orange jumpsuit so the trucks can see me puttering along in the breakdown lane?
A cute means of transportation for kids around the neighborhood, but not very practical for adults in the real world.
