But we're all a little nuts, aren't we?

Some top blokes riding Vespas the length of NZ to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation.

You know me by now, you know I think the class belongs to who comes first and everything else is imitation.
Furthermore, art is often irrationality linked to instinct, wanting to remain on the subject it is also an instability of thought that gives the beginning to genius; so I think that we are not always negatively unstable, we can be constructively unstable if guided.
I applaud the initiative of Znomit, the most eclectic "neozelandese" that I know.

Oh I'm not involved in this. My crazy scale goes up to 11, scooting the length of NZ is about a 1.5.

Nah
Nah, we're the only sane ones.

Actually, a scooter is the best motor vehicle for many applications. Once it gets warm enough, my truck rarely goes on errands unless the carrying capacity is needed. My carbon footprint and gasoline bill shrink substantially when that happens. And I smile more.

I question the sanity of people that need to haul around a ton and a half of metal and plastic with them wherever they go.

I used to ride with a group of guys on Sunday afternoon, all rode exclusively motorcycles except me. If I showed up on the Ninja I fit right in, but on those days when I showed up on the GTS I got complaints and a couple of guys made a point of staying away from me.

Something about crazy lean angles, having a bit too much fun and being difficult to keep up with in the corners.

So yeah, I think scooters can make you crazy...

Crazier than a sportbike apparently.

Riding a scooter to support mental health is pretty ironic.

New Zealand
Great group photo with the ocean in the background. I purchased
a New Zealand Rack of Lamb this last weekend. Very taste!

Looks like you all had good fun.

You don't have to be crazy to ride a scooter... but, it helps.
