mopeds r not cool in Europe.... you only have a moped if ur a kid or really old.
the reason everything was done there b4 here was because they have had a small bike culture longer than we have. small bike popularity is a newer infantile trend in the states.
no one in Europe wants mopeds...50cc scoots r where its at.. but that still make u lame or under 16.
its just like here.. who in the usa thinks mopeds are cool?...1% Europeans don't care, Americans don't care either... only ppl with mopeds care. thats why it seems like they don't know about us, cuz the group that u are referring to is very small and scattered.
