so, i recently came into possession of a moped. it had been sitting in a friends basement for about 15 years and he wanted it gone, so i took it for free. im not a huge fan on these little bikes, but damn it gets good mileage. im going about 30 miles on a quart of gas, averaging 25mph.
the great thing is that you dont need a motorcycle license, registration or insurance where i live, its just hop and go.

make fun of it all you want, and im aware i look like a dumbass riding it. but it gets me where i wanna go without putting gas in my truck all the time.

anyone else here have one?

No, but I do have a ninja 250. Top speed about 100mph 0-60 in 5.4 seconds and I got 70.4 MPG on my last tank, its a lot better to ride than a scooter and tons of fun but you have to have license and insurance and here an inspection...ect but still, cheap compared to my 14 MPG truck. And I got mine for $1000 with 182.4 miles on it, been sitting for about 10 years but a few hours and it runs like new and looks like it too except for a few minor scratches[thumb]

All you guys are dogging mopeds as if he expects to look cool on one. I love the moped! We had a Motobecane growing up, also a Garelli and a Batavus... all from the late 70's... Got them for 50 bucks each at a garage sale, ran for years and got great mileage.

Also bicycle parking was free at the lakes, but you had to pay for motorized vehicle parking, so we'd just pedal thru the gate and park for free![thumb]

yea, the pedals have their advantages. plus if the thing craps out or you run out of gas (which usually wont happen) you just pedal to where you gotta go.

im not saying mopeds are the coolest thing around, but i'd much rather be on and old skool moped that is basically a bike with an engine than one of those new scooters.

hahaha, yeah fat chicks and train recks, but man the mileage is killer, I got an old 1984 80cc honda moped from a friend. Since its over 50 cc its technically a bike, so when she got a ticket for not having her license she decided to get a newer one with 50cc instead of going through the hassle. Since I was always fixing it she gave it to me. Its kind of a piece, but man that 80 cc's on a little thing like that, IT DOES KILLER WHEELIES!!!!
