How about because I don't need insurance, a plate, inspections, or a helmet _and_ because it's great on gas _and_ they cheap to begin with _and_ I can fix them myself _and_ they're just cooler than lameass cars.

Re: Take the Poll.

Fun, if I rode to work I would get rear ended bad.

Fun. Saving money is just gravy after that.

Re: Take the Poll.

Definitely fun. I think I use more gas having a moped than I would otherwise. I got it for riding to class. If I didn't have it for that, I would walk (no gas required.) The times when I get to ride it around town definitely don't make up for all the moped-fixing-related errands I ran (run) when it's broken. Then if you want to count driving to rides on top of all that (rides I wouldn't be driving to if I didn't have a moped) ...

Re: Take the Poll.

My moped is my only wheeled transportation, and it became necessary because my knees were giving out and bicycling was not as much fun .. and because I can't afford a car and probably would not have one anyway because of environmental considerations .. and I also bought it thinking I could use it instead of Greyhound to visit my family around Ontario and across Canada .. which I have done.

Re: Take the Poll.

Moped poet. How far has someone gone on a Ped without a break down was going to be my next Poll. And it sounds like you have driven a bit on yours.

Both, but mostly for the fun.

Re: Take the Poll.

I definitely bought it for fun to begin with, but it's occurred to me that it saves me a ton of gas and time (as opposed to walking, or riding the bus) it also makes some trips more feasible. A great thing to have in a city like Minneapolis.

Re: Take the Poll.

I bought mine last year with the intentions of saving on gas and to have fun. I'm having so much fun saving gas I don't know which I enjoy more.

Re: Take the Poll.

I ride for fun.

What I really wanted to post:

"I ride Your Mom for fun!"

But that would be juvenile wouldn't it?

Re: Take the Poll.

Re: Take the Poll.

Re: Take the Poll.

Re: Take the Poll.

oddly enough, i'm a vegetarian too, so lets add another one to my hypocracy :)

About 5 years ago i tried to change many things about my life, i even quit smoking. about a year ago i had one at a wedding and that pretty much tossed the smoking thing out the window for me.

So i guess i didn't really quit, i just stopped.

I'm working on it. you know, if i hadn't known everything as a teenager and fully realized how much smoking get ingrained in your mind, i never would have started ... 20/20 right.

It's not even the nicotine that's the problem when quitting, it's the "what the hell do i do now"

Re: Take the Poll.
