I liked the guy who at least admitted "I'm healthy, I'm just lazy."

In the last year, Pride has super-sized models like the Maxima and introduced the Celebrity-X, to keep up with the increase in obesity.

“Ms. Starr and some other advocates for the disabled say able-bodied riders can rile pedestrians, creating a negative image of scooter use that could hurt those who really need assistance.”

This would be my concern also. If you are able to walk, then do so. Between these scooters and the Segway Persoanal Transporters all you are doing is enabling more laziness.

"Now waiting on line at the buffet is no problem," she says. "You just sit there."

That pretty much sums it up....

I have a business idea for someone. Integrate an ipod docking station (with a pop-monitor for ipod videos) and mini-frig onto the scooter. Also allow the customers to customize their scooter's color.

Then the lazy could totally tool around in style.

I just usually just ride my motorcycle on the sidewalk, and into stores/resturants.


People think I am badarse, but really I am just looking to sit down in the buffet line.
