Did anyone else think it was the coolest thing on earth to rent scooters when you went on vacation? Perhaps it was just that I was a 12-year lamenting over driving something, a step up from playing with match-box cars as a 6-year old. Either way, I fear that I’m still geeked out over the idea of driving a scooter.
I fear even more that I’d be willing to move downtown just to have the slightest excuse to buy this bad boy. But “bad boy” certainly goes against the grain of the scooter rider stigma. All I have to do is go back to dumb and dumber to squelch any thought that owning a scooter is a sane idea.
Still, perhaps the iPhone/BMW combo can change that perception somehow so that I may possibly relive that 12-year-old’s dream of riding my scooter about town, sitting on top of the world! Anyone with me? Anyone? Buehler? Mom?
