Scooter People Are Hardcore

Motorcyclists in Boston seem to be out in force up through October, and then all the Craigslist ads looking for winter storage space start to appear. But the scooterists seem to stay out all year round. I’ve seen people riding around all winter on scooters, sometimes even in the sleet and ice. Yesterday it was twenty-five degrees and I saw a kid on a Honda Metropolitan riding through Davis Square. With no gloves on.

This isn’t just the Boston Stranglers Scooter Club — it’s just random people on scooters. I’m telling you, scooter people are hardcore. It’s not just in Boston, either: check out this video about the Chicago hip-hop moped scene called “Throw A Kit…”
