Scooters & Mopeds, Take to the Streets!

11 06 2008

This isn’t necesarily east-Austin specific, but we sure have noticed a plethora of scooters and mopeds on this side of town.  The proximity of Austin Mopeds probably contributes to the two-wheeled wonder’s east-side popularity, but we think it probably has something to do with our general awesomeness on this side of town… they’re practical, fun, and pretty darn cheap to boot. With 100 miles to the gallon and their knack for parking in just about any available nook, we say yay.

So we bought one (a scooter, we’re not brave enough for a moped yet). And then we promptly got hit by a car. We couldn’t believe it either.

But no worries!  We’re bumped and bruised, but hobbling along nicely.  And Sophia the Scooter is all right, too (that’s right. we named her. got a problem with that?).

Moral: Wear helmets and avoid S. Lamar. Stay on the east side, folks. You know you like it better here anyway. And if you still feel a little unsure of yourself then check out one of the local Austin motorcycle training programs like Motofun. Be sure to let them know that you will be taking the course with a scooter so they can have one at the class set up for you.

Austin always seemed like a scooter town. Dallas not so much 🙂

Definitely more so than Dallas, I agree. Houston, too, for that matter!
