disposable scooters

  • 11 June 2007

a couple of years ago i bought a printer for about $25. the print quality was great for such a cheap printer. it did a decent job on photos, and it was perfect for term papers. but when it finally ran out of ink, i realized what the catch was. it would cost me about twice the original price of the printer to replace the ink. i had purchased a disposable printer. it was more economically viable for me to get rid of the “used” printer and to buy a new one than it was for me to buy new ink cartridges.

i bring this up on a scooter blog because a friend of mine is buying a used scooter for a couple hundred bucks. he knows it’s a terrible scooter, but he’s excited anyway. you see, at that price it’s a disposable scooter.

he was telling me about it. he couldn’t remember the brand, but he said, “the only good thing it has is the remote start”.

oh. so you’re getting a Tank. i know a thing or two about Tank…

in my opinion, any company that offers a three year, 36,000 mile warranty which covers nothing is more than a little shady.
