    Let me list how my scooter has saved me money last year1.
    1. Purchased Scooter $4,000.
    2. TTL $250.00
    3. Learn to ride course $165.00.
    4. Tag and Inspection $45.00
    5. Insurance $80.00
    6. Helmet $110.
    7. Jacket $110
    8. Boots $89.00
    9. Camra $150.
    10. Sandblast II rally $200
    11. Hill country ride $350.
    12. Plug kit $12.
    13. Gloves $35.
    This gives a grand total of $5,698. Spent with a scooter worth $3,200
    so we have a net loss of $2,498.
    I do not believe I saved $2,498 on fuel. I believe I am in the red.
    A scooter will never pay for itself on fuel savings.
    Scooters are like the Master Card advertisement (Priceless)
    The ride and the people make it worth every penny spent.

    Happy Scoot

    I hear you Ed. However, when I leave the Civic at home and get on that scooter, I am covering the same distance while using less gas, emitting less pollutants, leaving less carbon footprint and saving more money. The part about putting a big smile on my face, meeting nice people, and enjoying great food are just wonderful bonuses that come with riding a scooter. Simplification and less-dependence are fun!–Lorenzo
