I've always argued that running has made me a better driver. Now I can argue that running prepared me for riding. There's lot of overlap between the world of scooters and the world of training for road races.
Now if I could only get those motorists who are perpetually distracted (squirrel!) and the motorists who believe that stop signs don't apply on a Sunday morning onto a scooter or onto a marathon training plan, the roads would be a much safer place.
