Gooseneck Scooter Handlebars

For the Easy Rider in You
  [vote for,

You've seen gooseneck handlebars on motorcycles, right? Well, why not for scooters? It'll make riding it a bit harder (a lot harder if you go extreme), but it looks cool, anyway. You could extend the front wheel fork too, for that little extra 'chopper' look.

       Believe me, it exists. (My son demonstrated it to me.) (Shortly before he broke his scooter.)

       *galukalock zooming down the highway on his goose-neck scooter w/ motor attached, thinks, (uh oh turn up ahead), fails to negotiate curve, BLAM! hears sirens in the distance*

       If you wanna get extreme, you could take that wimpy ol' gas-powered scooter and tack on a nitrous kit.

       Does the phrase "Darwin Awards" ring a bell?

       How about a couple of solid-fuel rocket motors ?   

       Oh for heaven's sake [X2Entendre], will you shut the damn bell off ? We can't here ourselves think down here in R & D ....

       So you're not talking pushable scooters here, but powered ones. Ah, I see.

       could I give my skate board a chopper stylee?

       Initially, I thought of this for push-scooters, but when 'Bubba mentioned 'extreme riding', my mind wandered.

       You're right [8th], R&D is R&D, let applications worry about safety issues. Let's knock ourselves out!! (literally)

I've stifled the bell and I'm now requesting a carburetor that's jetted for an ethanol/castor oil mixture, a tuned exhaust system complete with expansion chamber and a Nitrous Oxide fogger, (or ether, if that's a bit more handy). I also suggest the rider wear some of [Farmer John]'s nifty stilt shoes just to get the center of gravity up as high as possible.

Obviously, a helmet would look ridiculous with this ensemble, so let's skip that and sport a mohawk or mullet with lots of hair gel instead, ok?

Before riding, I think it would be appropriate for one to say "Hey everybody! Watch this!" <G>
