I just want a means of transport – I don’t want to join a clubPosted: June 8, 2010
As much as I love Ms Hoa I can’t help but feel she’s ultimately not really me.
She’s a little small for my lardy tay frame. But most of all its those go-faster stripes that really get me.
Why can’t I just get a scooter in all-over matt black?
But what to switch to? While I’d love to go on a few spins into the nearby countryside, the whole Minsk thing doesn’t appeal. Sitting taller than locals in traffic while belching noxious fumes onto the old lady on a bicycle behind me – well it just doesn’t seem right.
Then there’s the Vespers. Undoubtedly cool but just a bit trying-too-hard, no? They’re unreliable but also, as with the Minsks, buying one would feel like joining a club when all I really want is transport.
Super Cub? I like ‘em. And if I was female and half my weight and size then I’d have already bought one.
So basically I think we can narrow it down to a scooter. And yes, of course I want it to be cool – but quietly so.
Obviously anything without gears and with a footwell is just for girls.
But I’m still not convinced.
