from a harley, to a smart. what a trip!

I was a biker for 18 years. Fear of driving a large car, and poor eyesight kept me from ever geting my class c. then came LASIC surgery.my sight was fixed. vision now 20/30 up from 20/400 befor. But fear had a strong hold, especialy after years of not being seen on my little sportster. Then the day came when I saw my 1st fortwo. I will share more later if anyone is interested, I can be long winded, but a slow typist

Jim you must have the crystal ball all warmed-up . just saw that thread / new posts from the "400 mile club" I'll take the plunge slowly... now on my 4th. tank in 5 weeks of ownership - the 7/8 fill has showed up. twice , so thread says put fuel in slower. thanks for all of the wisdom .
truly thanks again Rob M.
