    Please....you have tell me what the "parasol thing" is about.
    I think it was lost in The Great Fire of 2006....but my advice on this is to be forever grateful that that thread predates you.

    It sure would be Fly pulling up to a Hotspot in a Kick Scooter.

    It would be best if everyone stops encouraging this moment of embarrassment.

    We all know this won't end pretty....

    Man we used to have so much fun on my cousin's Go-Ped. Until we decided to see who could ride it down the street longer with their eyes closed.

    My team likes to use these at away regattas because they fit on planes and save our legs for racing, but seriously, we look retarded. It's fun, but you look like an idiot. However, we seem to get away with it since we travel in packs.

    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.


    Could it be that some of these big goofy smiles are the results of consumption of illegal substances?

    I saw many people (adults) in Berlin and Munich use kick scooters as a means of conveyance. This has rekindled my desire to get one for myself.

    The scooter is a fantastic idea. All the other dudes will be cringing at not having the balls to have started it. If they start after you, they will feel and viewed as copycats.
    And walking into a bar with a helmet is a major plus.


    I would try to get one with larger wheels than the razor types. Saw some with inflatable tires. Much more forgiving on the TX roads and sidewalks. To stop possible harrasment from TX drivers, write "nuke iran" in tape on your helmet. ( I used to ride a bicycle in TX and had beer cans flung at me from pickups. Also had a cop once pull me over and told to produce my drivers licence. He said I looked suspicious cause he had not seen other people riding bicycles.)
