    Mogo scooter

    I just saw an ad on TV for this, anyone else seen it?
    http://www.mogoscooter.com/

    Thought it looked interesting, and a little bit familiar, then I realized that the design has more or less already been done. One example I remember: http://mywilson.homestead.com/gallery108.html

    Don't worry, it will never happen...as a trend that is. Flash in the pan maybe but never long term. in my opinion.

    I saw a guy using one of those at White Rock Lake a while back. In his case, it looked really slow and doofussy, although I've seen the videos of people going really fast. And saw this on Craigslist earlier:
    http://dallas.craigslist.org/bik/716873043.html

    (Looking back at that, the Mogo has a small rear wheel and I'm pretty sure the one I saw being used did as well- the Craigslist ad has a larger rear wheel, though, so no identical.)

    Scooters in the World---

    Heyo---yea the mogo is cool, the latest player in a sport that started around 1955 in Europe.

    Yea for real-----check out www.iksaworld.com, you will get the picture.

    If you can cram 2 years of kick training into the next two months----then you will be ready to go to the Netherlands to race in this years World Championships in August.

    I think 15 countries will represent---including the USA. We are little behind the rest of the world (but we are still a superpower) in being able to hold our own against the European kicking pro's-----but we are getting close!

    Why would anyone spend $300 on this??? Scooters are way to much work.

    KickItUp has been banned on multiple occasions for promoting his stupid scooter company in the forums and other TOS violations.
    Ride lots, have fun, skid often!
