…My goodness, what a cliche of a title…

So, it’s FINALLY Spring in Washington, right? The annual raining out of the Cherry Blossom Parade has passed, the Popes is out, it’s finally nice here. So, how many of us have scooters? Quite a few, right? I know some of us have beautiful pink ones too. :  ) Well, you know what? You all may think you’re saving the planet by riding a vehicle that does 60-80mpg in the city… but my ride does 100mpp. (100 miles per penny).  I introduce to you, the Q Electric Espresso scooter. Now, this baby may not be the quickest thing off the line, but on days when there’s a Pope in town, and traffic is literally everywhere, and it’s even slowed down metro trains, I guarantee you that I’m going to reach my destination faster than you. The scooter is plugged in at night, and for 4-8 hours, you can ride roughly 30-50 miles, with a top speed of 35mph. And no gas! Plus, as an added bonus, legally this is considered by the city to be a “bicycle”, and so no registration, no license, no insurance, no nothing is required to drive it. And although it’s not required, one should probably wear a helmet. For more info on getting an electric scooter, visit their website. FYI, should you not want to go with the electric, they also just came out with a hybrid gas/electric and it’s sweet too. : ) One final note, this baby was under a grand. Yeah…  Awesome. Happy scooting! -kk
