    If you must, get a Xooter. You may be of stature enough to use a Razor, but at least the Xooter looks like a "grown-up's" scooter.

    as one who does this 2 or 3 times a week (admittedly on a Vespa rather than a Lambretta) I can confirm that drink driving is completely safe [​IMG]

    I have been drunk on my scoot too. Its not too tough/bad. so +1 to the Lamby or Vespa.

    Mind you, I bet you could pull off the scooter affair, but seriously, you will have to suffer some abuse of various varieties.

    To say the least.

    If you still must, make sure it's not a Razor. You'll look like one of those weird men that can't give up their childhood. We all've seen them, the ones scooting around the park in their helmets, elbow pads, knee pads, and a big goofy smile.

    I saw those. A most reasonable price. I intend to snag a Razor off of craigslist for cheap to test it out first before committing to a Xootr.

    Please post pictures with you on it if you do. You'll get bonus points if you're holding a croquet mallet while riding it.

    If they're smiling and happy and having fun, what's wrong with that? [​IMG]

    lol...from what gathered, Kent is supposedly a very well dressed man, I just can't invision a grown man in a suit riding a scooter..on purpose.

    I've seen a guy around here doing it. He seems to go from the Metro station to work (and I assume Metro to home). He looks like an idiot, imo.

    I say leave the scooters to the kids.

    I just watched some program in which some renowned NYC professor/lecturer navigates the halls of academia on a razor scooter---------not good. Not good. A woman in my company at the time (to whom I am married) was disgusted. Unless you have ambitions that include celibacy, steer clear. At least the Segway suggests you have ample disposable income...

    Chick in bar to Kent: "So, why don't we go back to your place so we can have more privacy"
    Kent: "Sounds great but I can only fit one on my kick scooter so I'll scoot on up the hill and you can walk up and we'll meet at my place, OK?"

    +1000.

    Plus, what are you going to do if a bunch of five year olds want to race you? And their scooters are more tricked?


    Depends on how many -- IIRC, Kent can take out up to twenty-something of them.
