i think the short wheelbase is some of the problem. they'll come around quick because theyre so short.

but MOST of it, is because theyre fucking retards.

How are scooters like fat chicks? They're fun as hell to ride until someone finds out.

90% if not 100% of those wrecks are from Taiwan. Their language is Taiwanese (chinese) hence the stick figure writing. I can't explain the license plates being in english other than their culture is 50/50 when it comes to what language is spoken.

And, as soon as I recognized some structures and street corners I instantly knew they were vids caught in Taiwan. Those fuckers are absolutely crazy there when driving, and it's not just the scooters either. Taxi drivers, Lori drivers, etc all disregard pretty much everything other than lights when it comes to driving there. If 3 cars can fit where 2 currently are, then by god some mother fucker will fit there.

I can say I never got to witness a wreck though while I was there, but damnit if I didn't see a million close calls.

Agreed. It seems the people who don't have the skills required to ride a motorcycle lean towards a scooter.....

You mean they ride the scooters like we ride motorcyles in Miami :P

Of course scooters are more dangerous. They handle terribly with those small wheels. They can't get out of their own way. They have shitty brakes. They're way less visible. Since a 49cc scooter tops out at 45max and take forever to get there out of the box the closing speeds can be dangerous on any main road with a speed limit of 45 or higher.

There was a guy in my MSF class who rode scooters and was just taking the class for shits and gigs. Granted, everyone was a beginner on bikes (although, I had dirt bike experience) and his only experience was on scooters, but he couldn't ride for shit; I guess he picked up a lot of bad habits or something.

3/4 of the way through the first day, he said he was tired and was going to sit the next few exercises out. He didn't show up the next day.
