I need to get a Yamaha Zuma soooo bad. It's too bad my new house needs a new furnace and airconditioner so I can be comfortable this summer instead.

lol, i got a moped(sorta), its actually considered a "go-ped" because its smaller and looks a little different than a moped.It gets about #5 kilometers(whatever that is in miles) to a 1 liter tank of 2 cycle gas. Its not registered or anything, but if i put mirrors and fix my turning signal, it can be street legal. I just ride it illegaly sometimes,lol.

i got pluled over on it once, the cop just laughed and told me to go home.

i looked on the net a little bit, and a Schwinn Campus looks like anice moped, and it supposedly get 117 mpg!!

What I wouldn't do for a Vespa. I'd drive it up to GR all the way from Wayland every day. Really, I would.

what way would you take?

Take division the whole way :)

Division of course. I don't know of any better way between the two towns. Maybe if the old GR-KZoo interurban line was still whole and more travelable, but the only 'vehicle' i can see going down that is a bicycle. And it gets run over by 131 around ABC.

I've never heard of the Moped Army o_o What is it? ^^

No, I'm not a member of the Moped Army...mainly because a Vespa is not a moped.

It's a motor scooter. Vroooom!

This may be a stupid question, but only because I am uninformed... ;)

What do all ya'll motor scooter and moded riders do when there's inclement weather (aka, the last 2 days)? What about winter?

TIA!

I'm gonna guess it involves The Rapid.

Inclement weather? Hah! I laugh in the face of inclement weather!

Not really, but here's how I suit up for a rainy ride:

Full-face helmet, rain pants over my pants or jeans, rainproof gloves, and for that '60s-mod touch, black trench coat.

The full-face helmet is the most important element, and so cozy you might as well be lounging in a wing chair and drinking Earl Grey tea.

...oh, and about winter, either the Rapid or the husband-mobile.

I have an old Honda moped, its actually a scooter. Haven't filled the tank yet to check the mileage, waiting for the weather to clear.

Also, do you need to have the old pedal mopeds to be in Moped Army?
