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!

KickItUp has been banned on multiple occasions for promoting his stupid scooter company in the forums and other TOS violations.
