Scrooser

Vespas can be incredibly bulky, although they’re relatively comfortable to ride on.

Because Laughter is the Best Medicine: Two Whole Minutes of People Falling Off Segways

If you carry your Monday blues through to Tuesday, then here’s a hilarious clip that’ll chase them away, at least for the next two minutes.
