Here is an idea for urban transportation...

The neighborhood kids have motorized skateboard-scooter things, that do about thirty five miles per hour, they keep up with the cars on the neighborhood streets here, they can be a cool part of transportation for people in urban areas, like mopeds. People should upgrade them as much as possible and then make them a part of city life for people, including in China and in India.

The ones that the kids have here are kind of like these...

The kids trick them out and they make them faster, and they make them so fast that they can keep up with the local traffic. Americans can make them and can export them to China and to India, but to do that the Americans need to make the best ones and Americans need to do the best marketing and the best distribution.

Just a thought.

Thanks for sharing. That looks cool. But we have had those scooters and skateboards zooming around here for almost forever. Electric bikes are common too around Plymouth.

Plymouth police will ticket a kid for riding a human powered skateboard on the sidewalk, but they don't seem to mind drug sales.

Another idea is that little tow behind trailers could be made, so that a person could tow a trailer with groceries in it, or a purse or back-pack or brief-case, or whatever, behind the gas scooter thing.

We usually just throw our day purses over the shoulder.

Bicycles build for two are good too with those side saddle bikes for the girls so they won't reveal any parts. We are quite conservative.

One way to promote American made gas scooters in India and China is by doing product placement in the television shows and movies in each area, as well as saturating their airwaves and printed media with advertisements.

Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell, and advertise!

If you could construct your ad in 13 languages, you could cover 95% of Indians. Otherwise, you will need hundreds of languages to capture the remaining 5%. It needs to be video with few words.

Detroit-Warren-Livonia was the 4th highest exporting area for 2012. Detroit exports to China increased 482% recently.
A better source of help might be the International Trade Administration.

Eventually they will probably force people to put license plates on them, along with mopeds.

Come on Tony, don't give em' ideas. We have personnel with badonkadonks worthy of license plates.
