Obviously, it's going to take some time for the rest of the U.S. to catch up to the existence of scootering as a viable alternate to driving a coffin.., er car. Take San Antonio's MySA.com for example. The writer of a scootering article posted this past Saturday discovers the many benefits of scootering that we already know. Nonetheless, it's still a pretty nice write-up, especially for the MP3.
Over the summer, there have been many articles like the one written for MySA.com as more and more cities are being introduced to Vespas, Kymcos, Suzukis and the like. I'm positive this latest one won't be the last, but it's still nice to see the scooter community expanding.
Check out the MySA.com post for a taste of how other parts of the country feel about scootering.
