    My wife had oneof those... minus the large lock on the wheel. It got stolen after about 4 months of use.

    It was a great little ride: inexpensive, easy to park. Nothing like filling up on pocket change!

    Yeah. I live in baltimore so the chain is crucial. The chain cost $130 bucks.

    Is that the 50cc or the 125cc version?

    The Zuma is a nice little scoot!

    My own scooter is a Vespa PX 150. It's a 4 speed hand shift. I like and prefer the older vintage stuff like old Vespa's.

    @jackknife It's the 50cc. No Insurance or motorcycle license required in MD. I can drive on any road which doesnt exceed 50mph, as long as I put out 30mph, minus stuff like the beltway and I95 obviously. The speedometer goes up to 40, and I've done that down hill. I drove my brother for a ride and I'm 250 and he is 150, and i had no problems. Its a little slow up hill, but its a 2 stroke so its the best its gonna get. My stepdad has a harley, and the zuma is just as relaxing and cooling when its nice out, albeit less noisy :) Now I gotta find me a girl to put on the
    back.

    @kanis its just gas and break.

    I just bought a Honda Ruckus. It is a blast to ride and everyone comments on how "COOL" it looks!

    I like it. Anything on 2 wheels is cool.

    My wife had a white Ruckus. She loved it but wanted to upgrade to a 250 street bike. I rode it a few times. Got a lot of laughs when I did. I am too tall for most bikes. I ride a Kawasaki KLR 650 almost daily.

    I've got a Burgman 400. Get 50+ mpg. Love filling the tank for less than $15. Haven't had it for too long, so while I don't use it to commute yet, I use it for errands during the spring and summer, and hope to commute eventually once I take the test. So much fun, and perfect since I doubt I'd do well having to shift; it's an automatic.

    My first set of motorized wheels was a Vespa, a Piagio 150. Fantastic for urban use!
