We need reliable, economical and dependable local transportation
Most of the driving the average person needs is local and as gas prices continue to escalate in the face of scarcity solutions to local transportation problems are becoming harder to find. Public transportation is far from ubiquitous and convenient. Hybrids help but they are expensive and may be overkill. Not everybody can or will ride a bicycle. I am delighted to find that some new scooters have entered the market. The one I like is the Buddy 125 imported by Genuine. It is a four-stroke and so it is clean and it is an automatic, so it is easy. It is rated at 96 mpg and costs less than $3,000. This is great economical transportation and it is cute as a bug!
