Okay. Here is my $0.02. I've got both a Moped, well actually 2 a '76 Puch w/a biturbo, a 70 cc kit and a 2002 Derbi Atlantis, and a motorcycle. Both Mopeds are very nice an fast. I enjoy riding either one around in my "rural town" and to the commuter train station as well a short juants to the burbs.

Many moons ago, in my wilder youth, I rode a BSA 250, a BSA 441, and a Norton 750. Then I stopped. "Limey bikes" then were powered by the "Prince of Darkness" --Lucus electrical systems. I think you get the picture.

30 years later I bought a Moped, '76 Puch on a lark from a neighbor who was moving out of town. I had so much fun w/it. While having it worked on at the local Ped Shop I saw the Derbi Atlantis, took it for a test drive and bought it. Everybody told me I'd get the fever. Nah I'd say. Well a week ago I succomed to the fever, I bought a "71 restored purple pearl Honda 750cc chopper w/all the good stuff, trapp pipes, mild cam, ported, pumper carbs and a triple sprung extended front fork that doesn't pogo down the road. Scwheat!!

But believe me it is cool to cruise by the uppie Harley guys on either the Chopper or one of the Peds. However, the bigest kick I get, is parking my Moped w/the Harley's outside my favorite "watering hole". Balls? You bet, big brass ones.

In closing, whether its "bikes" or Peds, Peds will be around as long as there are young Dudes and Old Geezers like me who just enjoy riding, in the late afternoon, evening, and all day on weekends. Life is too short! See ya Rich
