    I would recommend calling budget rentacar and getting a car instead. there was another extremely serious moped accident this week. they are very very very dangerous and in some cases deadly.

    and @ 35.00 an hour the price is outreagously expensive compared to a car rental for ~100 a day.
    email lousdepot@aol.com for a car request, and he is also right in edgartown.

    unless your an experianced moped or cycle rider your bound to become a statistic, the tiny donut front tires and steering geometry make it very unforgiving and when an operator has a great weight on the back (as usual) there is a decrease in front tire traction due to an unballanced load causing the steering to be less responsive, couple that with the way an operator is an idiot by not using the rear view mirror and when they turn there head to look behind at the oncoming traffic (especially to look around the fatti rear passanger) they tend to steer more into the road and upon realising that fact they tend to over correct it upon realizing it, the front tire wiggles and skids and there down for the count!
    guaranteed by the sandy shoulder road surface!

    i actually witnessed this event earlier in season making that very same notes to myself as to why it occurs, fella with a hefty girl riding passanger, throwing the weight balance too far to the rear allows the steering to drift easily.....
