the sad thing is I'm managing to justify it. I'm going to have to be up in Lynnwood or Bothell *four times* next week; the last time I needed to be in Bothell got totally screwed by the buses and ended up being almost two hours late for my appointment. I love the bus system here and all, but for any kind of extended trip it's a pain in the butt.
The only thing I wish is that I could find more information on scooters. So far I think I've gathered that they are essentially motorcycles that only go up to 50-55mph or so and aren't allowed on freeways. But are there other differences? What are the insurance and licensing requirements? I can't seem to find this information anywhere. Grr.
