I just had a nice experience on my scooter. I'm very aware of the fumes and odor coming from cars around me when riding around town. This morning, I was behind a Toyota Highlander and noticed that I couldn't smell any exhaust. I looked at the badges on the back of the Highlander, and sure enough, it was a hybrid. As I followed the Highlander down the road, I imagined a world without such an oil dependency; what a better place it would be.
Now I just need an alternative fuel scooter.
