a few "firsts" really. the actual first was a maxi in my neighbors garage when we were like 10. We bombed it through the woods and my head quickly populated with ideas and dreams of being able to go into town to get sodas and jolly ranchers whenever I wanted, the dreams of freedom. my neighbor and brother totaled it into a rock pretty quickly tho, but the concept never left me.

Then after highchool, I took a year off and built elaborate plans around touring to cape cod on a scooter and working summer gig jobs, but the scooter I bought turned out to be a scam and it wasn't til after college I bought my 1st scooter (eton beemer, zuma clone). I almost crashed it while test riding but quickly it became my primary transport and I loved it, it was all I dreamed of.

Then when I moved to ATL for grad school I got a tomos sprint, when I first got it running I was pretty pumped but quickly that was dashed as the carb clogged. repeatedly. in etospect I just needed a fuel filter but it was so regular and frustrating (and the carb under frame so a PITA to deal with) I actually just sold it and kept the scooter. I later got back into mopeds after my scooter got stolen and it's all history from there.

I even went back years later and fixed that 1st moped at my neighbors and let my nephew ride it around, I love mopeds.
