'07 Buddy Italia - The ORIGINAL!!

WOW!

I just gave all three a quick read and they seem to be excellent tools for the site here! I don't have any specific comments other than man you put a lot of work into them and they are going to be really helpful and save some people from having to post questions about these topics and wait on responses.

Tighty whitey guy in the gear thread is a little creepy. But useful! Laughing

I really like that you covered opposing viewpoints on things like Snell, denier, etc. The explanations seem to be very thorough.

I especially liked the definition of WHY RED IS RED!

That's an awesome start to a glossary for all noobies (myself included) for many acronyms! There were a few on there that enlightened me as well!

Thanks for putting this post together Eric!

That is really great... I kinda liked having to piece everything together when I first started learning about scoots and forums tho.

Yes, I can vouch, unlike Weebles, Buddies can fall down. Rolling Eyes

Edited to add: I assume everyone knows what it means, but you left out the definition of noob. Shocked

Dont forget to add a side note on moped. Too many people consider scooters as mopeds. Add the statement "It's not a dang moped!"

I would suggest "dead lights" for the front factory turn signals.

agreed - it might be good to have "cc" in the lexicon as well.

Added!

I also added a rather lengthy, detailed and overdue entry for "voodoo."

I've seen BPH used interchangeable with BMPH
Definition for "vintage" since "modern" is there.
