The standard mode of transportation for decades in Europe, motor scooter was a cult "fun" vehicle in the USA until the past two years. With oil prices soaring and the 20-to-40 set looking for alternative means of commuter (and weekend cruising) travel, motor scooter have exploded across the United States. In 2001, less than 30,000 scooters cruised U.S. roadways. In 2005, over 100,000 are road-bound, and the number is growing by double digits each year. Beginning at $1,000 and ranging up over $5,000, dozens of models of scooters are available, as are thousands of accessories. And scooter clubs meet from San Diego to Bangor, Maine. Every year, the largest gathering of motor scooters takes place in Indianapolis, speed capital of the world. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Motor Scootersis the perfect introduction to the wonderful world of motor scooting.
