Hey, I used to own a Yamaha Razz and loved it. It was stolen by dirty little thieves and wrecked beyond belief. But don't get all upset at moped riders, either, Sean.
I just don't get it. You want us all to stick together, but then you call us "pussies" and start throwing obsenities at us. Is that how we stick together?
Look, the debate over what is and is not a moped is long and arduous. I think scooters have definite advantages over mopeds (and mopeds have advantages over scooters). But I do stand by the "mo" (motor) "ped" (pedal) part of the definition -- regardless of engine displacement. I'd call a 5000cc machine a "moped" if it had pedal starts.
I'm glad you enjoy your scooter. Sprees are pretty nice, and common enough so that you can get parts easily if you have any problems. I agree w/ Dave B, check out the Jedi Knights. But I think they're only a Vespa club. Or you can start your own club for scooter riders. I think you should.
But don't harrass the Moped Army. First, what have we ever done to you? Second, it's just not a good idea ...
