Are scooters popular where you live?

My son got a scooter from his grandfather a few weeks ago. I bought one for myself today so that we could ride around together.

There was people everywhere on them things! What got me most was there is like a secret code between scooter riders. Every time we would someone on one it was "honk honk" and handwaves! WTH?

  • There are scooters everywhere here (seattle) but i think its cause it doesnt snow very much and parking ANYWHERE is a pain in the @$$!!! So it saves you hundreds every month to have one. I personally dont know about the scooter language, my hubby and i ride motorcycles, but we do have the wave and what not with them ;)
