haha jesus you guys are touchy. all i said is i dont like tomos and im getting bombarded with challenges to races and generalizations about how "everyone knocks on tomos".
i still dont like tomos that much, despite the persuasion goin on here. I guess i'm still "a hater". and i dont have a problem with that. because at least i have a reason for my opinion. I agree with you guys, some people just hate tomoses for the sake of having an enemy. That's pretty lame. but don't get on my case for saying my opinion, I have reasons for it.
here's my response to billy's list. Agree w/ some things, not w/ others.
No Soul! it’s new, It kick starts. -Technically true but they still make peddlers
People like to hate on them. -True
yeah, definitely a lot of dudes ride them that don’t know what’s up. So? -Well a lot of people like to ride mopeds because they are something most people dont have, or dont have easy access to, or dont know how to fix, or dont know how to ride. It's great that tomos is still making mopeds, but for some people it threatens them because it offers 20-something year old workaday guys to go out and buy what was once unique. I can see that side of the arguement. I certianly dont want it to catch on to the point that i'm associated with assholes.
any model besides the sprint is pretty wack. -Haha, especially the revival, but i think they're all pretty wack.
It’s a direct challenge to add your own soul to it. -Thats true, thats a good way to look at it.
Two speed power house! - Variator? Didnt think so.
c’mon now! Black is tough as fuck! -Other peds dont come in black?
parts by the gazillion -Eliminates the need for jerry rigging, and sometimes ingenuity. Get your hands on a Kreidler and you'll be making some parts out of zip ties and silly putty pretty quick.
Feels good when you can beat damn near every bike up to my top speed without a kit. -Probably true, but that's cause it's new."
That's just my opinion on the matter. At least be happy that i try and represent myself eloquently, instead of most of the blind-tomos-hater-types who are just gonna tell you "TOMOS SUCKS!"
When it comes down to it, if you're riding, you're riding, especially if you care about what you're riding on.
