    You should. Before they finally close that hole. I want one for going to the mailbox. But the rules say ya have to get a doc to say you need it inside the house. Not outside. Probable adds fifty bucks to the doctor bill. >>

    Hmmm...I was thinking more like a nice pint of something in a brown paper bag...just in case I feel like I might freeze to death and need a little warm-me-up. :cool:

    I live out in the country and I see folks out riding them around and I always wonder how do they know if they have enough charge to get them back home. We had one old guy who towed a little wagon with a generator in it so he could charge up his battery on the long hauls.

    I believe the young fella in the vid upgraded the scooter to hold a 125cc Honda motor. I hope I die before go fast when I get old.

    Not sure about using a gas motor indoors, but that looks like a lot of fun.

    The best part for me is that the scooter doesn't look modified.

    I am amazed that the wheel didn't fly off their axles or just explode/break apart.
