    Im skeered of them tiny vehicles, it would not be so bad if everybody was driving one...

    I passed a guy on a major highway driving a scooter, he had a reflective safety vest on.

    The money he is saving on gas wont help much when he gets smushed like a bug.

    Well's theirs no way I could ever fit in one but even if I could it would be a no go. Those things are TINY. They use to store them in the back of the HD's to save room at the dealership. :gasp:
