Just in case it didn't occur, Wulf....the corner of 8th and Jeffrey ?
That was the startin point cause I happened to live there.
For thems that don't know much about B-more...that's 2 blocks diagonal from "Ground Zero" of the Forgotten Lands (The Brooklyn/Curtis Bay Ghetto, kinda like South Central LA without the Tourists) which'd be 10th and Stohl.
You do NOT wanna live there.
(Michiganders..compare to Cass Corridor, bout 5-6 years ago)
The 'ped is an ideal vehicle for the area, since 1 years car insurance would cost most of you younger guys up to $3,000.00, plus inspection, plus emissions, plus registration, title, tags, etc.
In that area, you think you will find employment that allows you to fork out $10,000.00 to drop a car on the road that's only worth about $500.00 ?
And I think I will leave riding the bus or the light rail (Loot Rail !, Loot Rail !), to yer imagination...<shudder>.
MD requires nothing for mopeds...a Law Test and a K-Permit, which is $15.00
The only problem with that, is keeping ones 'ped (and ones arse) in possession and intact, or more folks would have them.
But yeah, I rode those streets from 1987-1992 till the wreck, and on the trike, till 1997, so I've rode that area for a decade.
Being still here to bitch about it, I figure I got a maybe a little bit of right to snarl back at moped detractors, heh.
