"'Scuse me while I kiss the sky..."

The scooter has been named:

Onyx Purple Haze.

Yes, I know what purple haze is, but I like the song, and the scoot puts off a hazy purple halo on the pavement. One could even say that riding has a drug-like effect, so perhaps the name has a double meaning.

On the seat of a scooter with an open road ahead, the concerns of the greater world seem to fade away. Calm seeps in replacing feelings of anxiety and worry. The wind, the light of the sun or moon, the rain, the smells of nature, all these things and more add to the intoxicating effect of a long scooter ride.

So the name seems appropriate. It's not really a drug, sure, but the calming effect is undeniable.
