Moped Update


I bought the bad boy back at the beginning of May and have filled it up only three times since. I see that envy! I’ve been driving it for 3 months straight and have spent $18 in gas so far. What do you think about those apples? Not so dorky anymore am I? I’ve gotten over the dork factor for the most part. There was this one incident where some guy looked at me and literally laughed out loud as I was driving by. Maybe he was laughing at a political add on the radio?

I’ve put about 350 miles on it and have averaged 75 mpg, maybe a little more. One thing I’ve noticed is that there are a lot more mopeds zooming around Bluffton. I know they can’t all be people who have a DUI. That makes me feel a little better. I’ve even got a few moped buddies I wave to now and again. On a slightly different note, I’ve ran out of gas twice now while driving. Luckily, I was only about a mile from the gas station. Walking is good exercise too! I do have a gas gauge, but have a hard time telling exactly where the empty line is.

Well, that’s the moped update.

You are man above all men. King of Geeks and Lord of Mopeds.
You can't beat the gas bill though. Nobody ever said geeks were dumb.

This moped update is lacking an action shot...

I agree with Eric. This post is worthless without pics!

I don't just want a pic, I want a small film on this experience. I can't fully understand the mind of a Moped(er, ist) unless I have some action going on. And a commentary with bloopers would be nice too. Yeah that's about it for now.
