I didn't know a simple joke would have such an effect; I am sorry everyone took things so seriously (which actually makes things a little more hilarious to me -- the internets have way too much power over people's well being and feelings, forgiveness please).
The price of mopeds has been discussed so many times, and the typical response is "What ever you're willing to pay for it", or "It depends on your location": hence the sad attempt at humor. Most questions posted on this forum _usually_ get an insincere response, which is another reason I didn't think it would be a big deal. I feel if I know something about a topic, I always try and help; I really wasn't trying to poke fun at anyone -- if I was, I would call you out by name.
I am sorry you got so butt-hurt Travis and 'Spartafoxilover'! After riding mopeds for over 4 years, I've never been the center of controversy. I feel terrible, but I have a sweat-pants-boner, so yeah.
