I've been winterizing our four scooters the past two mornings. I really do go overboard but the results have paid off- never a problem in the Spring and the scooters look showroom new...

My neighbor comes by while I had the garage door open to let the exhaust fumes out and he gives me that line.... "Hey! they're only scooters". WTF?
This from a yuppie dude that had a Harley but recently sold it after putting 18 miles on it over three years.....that's not a typo. He even bragged about that feat.

I just joked and said "yeah, but they're MY scooters- you know how I take care of everything".

Anyone else ever told that their two wheeled vehicles don't "measure up"?

Could have been just mutual joking but I sensed a bit more by the tone. Maybe he regrets selling his bike. That macho imagine tarnished...

When we were still riding bmw, we were parked outside a restaurant in daytona whena harley couple on abike with a few hundred miles on it parked next to us. After a few minutes the lady commented to my wife that her bmw could use a wash. My wife told her she did not have time since we just got back from oregon with a stop in ohio on the return trip. She just turned around and walked away. It was a nice hd, neverbeen in the rain.!

18 miles in 3 years. I did that within 15 minutes of riding my Harley off the showroom floor.

Just know his comment is your claim to fame. I bet others know you as the guy with many scooters. Not a bad thing in my book.

Don't let your neighbor get you down. For many people, their PTW's are toys, or lifestyle accessories. They will never understand those of us who just want to ride. Different strokes for different folks.
