Kind of fun to see how the other 1% live Shocked
If that doesn't look like an accident waiting to happen, I don't know what does. Hopefully she got the FF helmet, because oh boy, is she going to go down.
I was just laughing hard as she is shopping for a scoot like you would buy a purse ROFL

At least the mom was smart enought to say no to the 100mph one. I wonder what she got.

She ended up getting three (3) scooters. It was dark and there was a big crowd so it was hard to tell exactly what 3 scooters were delivered. The full episode is on mtv.com. I have to go back and watch it carefully to find out.

Most of the girls on that show get a Mercedes Benz or BMW, so she got ripped off.

That's occasional MB poster POC Phil (of Pride of Cleveland). That shop is just beautiful. And huge!

Though I'm not sure riding a Buddy is "just like riding a bicycle, only without the pedals." Most bicycles don't go 60mph and don't need a license. Maybe the quote was out of context.

I have a feeling this girl's already dropped her new scoot. Maybe a couple times. And if she did (or when she does), she won't be wearing gear.

POCphil,
it would also be interesting to get your take on that whole experience.
A bit surreal.

Sorry to say it, but that kid's a brat! Im woking my butt off to get my Buddy. I think that earning the money for your Pride and Joy is more rewarding than- "My birthday party will be ruined if I dont get one" (or three). When I get my scooter- It will be worth every hour I worked to get it! Confused Thank goodness for being a poor college student! Wink

The video has been removed. Technically it is copyrighted material. I figure everyone who wanted to see it has already viewed it.
