They are good. I have a scooter. Its fun to jump of stuff and do 180s on them. THe problem is the wheels;the plastic part around the bearings constantly crack.

Yep, that was really, really lame! We saw the same tricks done over and over again: Tailwhip, double tailwhip, and an x-up. That was pretty bad. Even if these guys were any good, their sport will always be a half-time freak show...

blt2ride, there was a lot more scoot-trickery than that! 360s, grinds, flatland stuff, and something that might be considered part of the knack-knack family. The manual to scoot-whip to manual at the end was smooth. Anyone who's bashin' these kids are probably the same people who constantly feel the need to count the pennies in their "coinpurse."

It's not a coin purse, it's called a fanny pack. Seriously, if people were throwing down some tricks, I would like to see that. I'm sure some riders could do some decent tricks. 360 tailwhips, 720s, grinds, that would be fun to watch. Although, to me it's like inline skates. I know people are throwing down some pretty gnarly stuff, it just always looks wrong.

Since I used to be a skater, I guess the attitude is still there; even though I haven't skated in many years...

It's all good--to each their own.

I used to be able to do a wheelie on my Razor for like a mile, but then it broke. So then I bought a gas powered scooter, which is 10 times better.
