You should get yourself a moped and find out for yourself.
Although I'm twice the age of the "demo" group and am in California, I respect the Army's way of keeping these relics of the Carter Era alive for others to enjoy.
Fewer people give a damn about their vehicles anymore with all the computer controlled plastic EPA/DOT approved transportation units nowadays. Mopeds require a little understanding and determination from their owners as many have not been available in over 20 years.
If this bunch can keep these machines alive and contribute to society, what's wrong with that?
I'm sure it would be more fun than sitting around a Country Club wih all the boring rich people.
