Nothing to do with the high price of gas here, My wife just needed a new scooter, she has to go to the the bank etc and this is just the easiest way to do so. When it rains, I play driver for her.
A Suzuki "Lets 4" which is a 4 stroke 50cc scooter.
Cost us, on the road, about $950, not bad.
This little scooter gets about 188 MPG (US Gallons) yep, you read that right, this scooter is fuel injected, and is very lightweight, only 130 pounds. For a little scooter it is fairly quick, and for getting around town, it is a good tool.
And there is my lovely wife striking a pose on her new scoot.
Her first reaction when seeing it.......... "Wow it's really YELLOW"
