I've seen this little guy before and quite honestly
I didn't see the attraction. "It's light!" - "So?"
"It's folding!" - "What's the big deal?"
Then, today, I was at Walgreens and I saw a Scooter-Pro
proudly sitting on the shelf. It was small, shiny and seemed
to beg for my attention. I approached and lifted it - indeed,
it was very, very light. Next thing I knew, I took it for a spin
around the store. When I returned, cashier and manager looked
pretty annoyed, but I was convinced - I had to have it!
While I rode, it seemed like there was nearly no friction -
almost like with a Hover Board that Marty McFly had
in "Back to the Future
Right after I left the store, I've put the scoot in working
order (takes less a minute) and began riding it in a parking lot.
After avoiding a near collision I was pleased to learn that it actually
has a break on the back wheel :)
Later that day I stopped by my friend Yuri's house to show
him the new toy. We went outside and continued riding. Our findings
- Scooter-Pro is very exciting to ride downhill (though
a little scary at first).
- The smoother the pavement, the better it works.
So, I have a new friend - Scooter-Pro, which joined my growing
collection (2 mopeds, 3 bicycles and 1 Bike Machine).
