Posted in Bizarre, General, Motorcycle, Scooters by Kurt Ernst | April 6th, 2010 | 8 Responses |

The Japanese have a knack for building some out-there vehicles, and these scooters are no exception. Modified to the point of being unrecognizable, they’re definitely an acquired taste; then again, so are scooters in general, especially if you’re a bike guy. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, props to the builders for the amount of work spent creating these rides.

    Man, I love the Japanese! From fashion to design, I can count on them to do some shit I’d never expect.

    The term “polishing a turd” comes to mind.

    Dave, the Japanese also build the world’s most kick ass toilet seats; heated, built in power washer, etc. We may have put men on the moon, but they totally kicked our ass in the bathroom comfort department.

  4. Dave says:

    I’ll give them the props on the manufacture and design of them, but if you’re going to buy a scooter, then pay to have it made the size of a motorcycle, why not just buy the motorcycle to begin with?

    Also, Kurt, as a point of technicallity, ” heated, built in power washer, etc. We may have put men on the moon, but they totally kicked our ass in the bathroom comfort department.” wouldn’t that mean “they totally CLEANED our ass in the bathroom comfort department? ;-)

  5. Kurt says:

    Speaking just for myself, my ass was never cleaner than in Japan.

    “Speaking just for myself, my ass was never cleaner than in Japan.”

    Truly the definition of T.M.I. ;-)

    Oh, wow. Didn’t expect this conversation to head in this direction…
    But I’m sure the Japanese have some great X-rated viewing material on the very topic of which you gentlemen speak…
