We have a rule when choosing where to shop: If we can buy a product from an Eastern European man named Walter, that's where we go. We buy our loaves of bread from a Slovenian baker named Walter. Our pirated channels come from a Ukrainian cable guy named Walter. See the tile in our kitchen? The guy who laid it goes by Wally. We think he's from Poland. Anyway, when it came time to buy a scooter — the need hits you upon acceptance that you're never getting that promotion to Chicago so you might as well wear only shorts, learn what the hell jai-alai is, and commute on a little two-wheeled apparatus powered by a blender motor — we snubbed the purveyors of brand-new Vespas. We want a cheap and enjoyable way to flit around town, not a second mortgage. So we found Astro Scooters, where the brusque, grizzled Walter Presic showed us a neat lineup of mopeds. Their prices range from $400 to $600 — a big money saver considering they get more than 100 miles to the gallon. If your moped breaks, Walter shows up at your door with a toolbox. Oh, by the way: Unrelated to his scooter business, Walter rents tools, which is the most old-school business since, like, renting leaches. Like we said: Eastern European dudes named Walter. They'll never fail ya.

Do not go there! A bunch of dirty old men that will rip you off! I had them pick my scooter up for a new battery because it was sitting and a tune up. Every day I called about my scooter they would add something else on the list. I have a new scooter with only 109 mile on it and they tell me that I need a new battery, carburetor, regulator, fuel pump, starter and  hoses. The bill came to be $486.85. I drove home and the next day it would not start. I took the battery to advanced Auto parts and they told me that the battery was weak. They tried to charge it and it would not charge. I ordered my own battery from Ebay and put it in. It started but kept cutting off. They picked it up and kept changing their story every day. The next day  they said I had put bad gas in it. The nest day they said that it was water in the tank. The next day they said that the fuel flitter had cracked from the sun. The charged me another $88 for a bunch of  lies!
