He was saying that the Buddy was a THIRD of the cost, and all the performance (or better). ...and honestly, most 'sane' riders are going to use scooters in the 125cc/150cc range as an "around town commuter" as they say. At least in California.

More from Genuine

And as if the scooter wasn't enough, today I received another package in the mail from Genuine: welcoming letter for getting the Black Jack, T-shirt, notepad, key chain, bumper sticker and some other decals and stickers. I never cease to be amazed at these guys!

Absolutely!

And now I'm waiting for some business cards I ordered from Moo Business Cards (http://us.moo.com/en/products/busine...FQTyDAodFlypXA). They are half-cards but you can download up to 50 pictures and have them printed up. So it will be fun to hand out cards with my picture on them (another reason to get my new ride pink since all my cards will have a pink scooter on them!).

Can I have your autograph

I think you should get ahold of Jay Leno and tell him all about the buddy.

Ya know... the last time I was in Vegas, there were these dudes handing out cards with pictures of women on them.
