    The other day someone drove by on a scooter that looked like a cross between a motorcycle and a full suspension mountain bike. The wheels were the size of a small motorcycle. It must have been a 50cc scooter as there was no plate on the back.

    Anybody know what brand it was? The glimpse I caught leads me to think the name began with a T.

    Nope. It was much more motocross like in style.

    No luck. It had Scarabeo sized wheels.[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] [/FONT]

    You're just impossible to please! :tongue:

    Have to say, I'm stumped. There aren't that may scooter companies in the US. Have you tried searching?

    Thank you for letting me know. I've never seen nor heard of that bike before but it's interesting.

    Piaggio has that wierd MP3 series with 2 wheels in the front. Riding that would definately be a head turner :eek:
