Quietness? How in the world do they know when to shift gears? Don't loud pipes save lives? "Ride in the back" ...grr... Didn't we have a civil rights movement to give old two-strokes the right to sit at the front of the line? Hmph... Maxiscooter snobs. Still, maybe we could do that with the ol' Lammies... *cough* *wheeez* *hack* ;)

I must be really, really bored to keep replying to this topic.

Use the force - trade all of your two-strokes for Bajaj's. Then you'd be green and getting better gas mileage than a Prius. No more of these crazy rationalizations.

I'm assuming a Zen-like posture now.

Oh man. Even the Min Maxers don't like us loud and/or stinky polluters!

"It is important to note that the focus of Minn-Max is obviously on maxiscooters.

    No, no. We like everyone. We just like loud, stinky polluters far from our nose and ears.

    We are not snobs! We're elitist, Honda Elite-sts that is. And everyone gets ice cream, but 4-strokes get sprinkles too!

    You don't shift maxiscooters, you glide through the power-band with a continuously variable transmission. And loud pipes don't save lives, helmets save lives. Loud pipes just scare the beejeebies out of small animals and piss off the neighbors. <wink>
