Dude, scooters have blown up to extreme levels of ridiculousness here in PR. EVERYBODY HAS A FUCKING SCOOTER. There's literally a scooter store every 5 blocks in any direction, it's really getting out of hand.

 

I've been starting to see a lot of really bad accidents involving people who think scooters are adequate means of highway transportation.

 

So basically, fuck scooters.

yeah i noticed a lot of scooters in PR, i didnt get a chance to look at any close up though. i was too worried about coping with the humidity and therefore was drunk

I used to have a POS brand scooter when I was like 14 and the bitch would shock the shit out of you if you grabbed both the brakes at the same time

most of the people i knew growing up rode scooters because they had so many DUIs thats all they could get near....then i move to my current location and the only people riding scooters are 18 - 20 year old black kids in maternity dresses who would probably beat the shit out of me if i even hinted at how amazingly gay they looked doubled up on a scooter going 25 miles an hour (with one on a cell phone).

 

 

so basically, fuck scooters.

dude...no offense...but I hate scooters. I can't wait till that stupid trend dies. I can't believe how fucking expensive some of those things are as well. Damn, for that money you could have a motorcycle with some sack.

 

disclaimer:

they're only an acceptable form of transportation if you're in Europe.

A few years back i came across someone like this, except they weighed upwards of 350 pounds and they crashed trying to take a corner too fast. Funniest shit I've ever seen
