I always wanted a motorcycle, but I figured I'm 63 -- I'm too old for a motorcycle. And scooters seemed just as fun. So I got one and just finished a training course for it.

I'm still new to the whole thing, so there's definitely some intimidation -- I've been avoiding the terribly busy streets for now and using the scooter as a complement to my car. But I get 90 miles to the gallon, and my Jeep Liberty gets 17 [and costs about $65 to fill], so eventually as my experience grows I'll use the scooter more and more and the car less.

I've only had it for about three weeks, and I haven't had to refill it yet.
