Whoa, hold on there, I'm not biased against moped riders or anything like that...all the "retards, nerds and homos" comments are unnecessary. I bought a moped so I could go to work and what not without being covered in sweat everyday from a 12 mile bike ride each way, without having to take my car. I like things I don't have to think about, that also don't take up a lot of my time. My car if it breaks down on the road, I call triple A and they tow it away and it get's fixed. If I broke down on my junky moped, I would have to call someone for a ride which would annoy me and them, and I would have to go back and pick up my moped later and put it in my car which would then do more damage to my car! My moped also barely holds any gas(.66 gallons), so I always have to make sure it's filled in the morning which can lead to spillage on me or the ped since I'm tired at that hour. Plus I have to check the tires every day because they are cheap and shitty and lose air constantly.
To the "Upon Reliability" poster: My car cost me $1000 dollars to buy, my moped, $900. The costs for my car were practically nothing. A couple hundred for insurance and inspection and what not. My moped has so far probably cost me MORE than my car at this point because of all the times I've had to bring it back to the shop IN my car, which wastes gas, and wrecks my car, plus $20 registering at the DMV, helmet, etc. etc.. I spend $17 every 2 weeks on gas for my car.
