i think dan's right here. now i havent started or attempted to start a branch of moped army, but i know just from very recently aquiring a moped of my own, that it wouldnt be too hard to do so if i really wanted to. there must be at least 5 friends of my own who've started browsing the vehicles for sale classifieds and ebay in an attempt to find a good deal on one. even my friend's little sister (who's my age (senior in high school)) asked me the other day if i wouldnt mind helping her get a moped running if she was able to find one. Im sure you people who wish to start branches have friends who have expressed an interest in your moped. or maybe you have friends like me who laugh at it. try letting them ride it. ive converted 3 of my friends from saying "god that looks so dumb" to "holy @!#$ man i gotta get one of these" after just a ride around the block.
