I'm thinking of buying a scooter--
My old truck is on it's way out...
and I can probably buy a reliable scooter for less than I can buy an unreliable car....
I'd like to spend around 1000--and can pay cash....so used is likely--but the low end at downtown scooter seems to be around that....
any advice??
I've never had a scooter--but have always wanted one..
Does anybody have a scooter as their only vehicle? I'm a little nervous to say goodbye to having a roof and doors...

I do. Here's the pros:
*Gas is practically free
*Maintenance at Downtown Scooter is cheap
*You get to know the city a lot better because you are going slowly and not taking freeways/big streets
*You can smell wisteria in spring and honeysuckle in summer
*People assume you're cool without knowing anything else about you

Here are the cons:
*You will not be able to feel your hands in winter
*You will otherwise be really cold in winter
*You will go really slow
*Cars will be an asshole to you
*If you get hit you will probably get hurt real bad or die
*It is really hard to go somewhere else to do laundry if you don't do it at home
*Grocery shopping is a lot harder because you cannot carry nearly as much as in a car
