Hey guys im thinking about getting this moped and im wonderin if i ride it around will people make fun of me? by the way im only 16 years old. Best Answer:
Well, I am 16 too, and I own a 50cc motorbike (Rieju Rs2 50 2009 in black) And it's more of a respect thing I guess, like, if a 600cc motorbike goes down the road, and a moped follows, it may be laughed at. A lot of people perceive them as girly due to the hairdryer kind of noise, and bigger bikes with throaty exhausts to be manly, personally id recommend a 50cc motorbike, check Bike Trader, Gumtree (where i got mine). Your scooter looks fine, but it seems all sporty, which is especially laughed at:/. Good luck, if you need to ask anything my Skype is ogrymeml, and btw i'm not one of those idiots on it, i have loved motorcycles since 6 years old, i respect the bike too much to be a knob. i wear full leathers etc. And i don't laugh at mopeds, but do not like them at the same time. But there is also a Moped community, much like there is a car, motorcycle or even a bus community, you're not alone if you want one.
- You know there's a better way to phrase that.
People will probably make fun of you if you are the kind of guy who worries about looking "gay." The scooter is fine. The confidence and freedom you get from riding anything with two wheels will make you worry less about what people think if you.
There is a whole scooter culture that embraces the ease and affordability of those little scoots. Just don't tell people you ride a "motorcycle" and then show up on this little thing. No need to be a poser.
Have fun, ride safely. Take a Motorcycle Safety Foundation class, even if your state's laws don't insist. It will be helpful.

Need Help Finding Motor Scooter Sales Data2009-04-28 10:59:27 by TGIF4ME
I need some web guru to help me find some Motor Scooter data on the internet. I know that it's probably available somewhere...but I can't find it.
I am looking for "Motor Scooter Sales in the US:
by State or Metro Area". I DON'T want Motorcycle industry data...I need only Motor Scooters (Vespa, Mopeds, Honda, etc).
I've only been able to find Motor Scooter Sales in the US but NOT by state or metro.
Any help will be appreciated!!!
