I really want a scooter.  I can justify it with the gas savings.  I’d like to rarely ever drive my car.  I’ve been planning to buy a scooter.

I took some time to think about the real reason I want a scooter, and what that would mean.

I like gadgets.  I like spending money.  A scooter is a cool gadget.  Riding the scooter would mean less time on my bicycle, therefore, less exercise.  I need the exercise, and I really can’t afford to drop $2000 on a scooter right now.

So, I’ve made a promise to myself to not buy a scooter this year.  Next year is fair game though.

This year, I keep riding the bike, try to get to where I can bike all the way to work (16 or so miles) instead of the 3.5 I’ve been doing.  Next week I’m bumping my ride to 6.5 miles (one way).  I’d like to do that 3-4 days a week.
