    Haha, that's great!

    Thanks

    I've never been a fan of scooters (being a skateboarder) but I've seen some amazing things done on the "trick" scooters. Of course the motorized ones are pretty cool.

    When I was in 4th grade, I Accidentally cut myself half way around my ankle by a loose bolt on the back of the scooter. Still have the scar.
