Gas Powered Scooters: Taking Back The Road

Gas scooters were first introduced to the world in the middle of the 1950's. The first design was little more then a bicycle with an engine mounted on it, it was called a cycle motor. The cycle motor can still be seen on the road these days in the form of electric bikes.
Gas powered scooters have been popular for years in several European countries. With the rising cost of gas in America they have seen an increase in popularity in the United States.

One of the reasons some people have a gas powered scooter is to circumvent losing a driver's license. Many states don't require a driver to have an operator's license if they are over eighteen years of age, sixteen in some states. They also don't require that the operator have proof of insurance and a current registration.
If you would like to become a member of a scooter club and go on scooter rallies you are probably going to want to invest in a gas powered scooter.
While the advantages of an electric scooter might be the ability to fold it into a small compact bundle of aluminum and carry with you on the bus and store it in the linen closet gas powered scooters have their own array of advantages.
a. Gas powered scooters are faster than the average electric scooter. They can travel at speeds up to thirty-one miles an hour.
b. Gas scooters have very cool body styles; some gas powered scooters look more like miniature motorcycles then scooters.
c. Gas scooters save tons of money - While the cost of gassing up gas powered scooters might seem expensive compared to the low cost of running an electric scooter, the mileage they get quickly make up for the gallon of gas they require.
d. Gas powered scooters can maneuver rather well - A gas scooter is a great way to move through traffic. They dart in and out between cars, especially gridlocked traffic. Imagine how good you look arriving at the office ahead of the car driving staff.
e. No parking spots? No problem! Mopeds can be squeezed into any available space, even right in front of the front of the buildings door or on the sidewalk.
f. Maintenance, no problem - A Gas powered scooter is easy to maintain. With a basic grasp of tools and a decent book about mechanics most people are able to maintain their gas powered scooter in their own garage.
The best thing about gas scooters is the freedom. While you drive your scooter down the road you can smell the scent of the leaves changing in the fall, the warm summer breeze can brush along you.
