I know I've been reading too much Gawker because I thought at first that was referring to Paris Hilton.

From the tour description:

"During our tours we also experience what it is like to be a movie star as everyone, and we mean everyone, turns to watch us cruise by. You will be a Parisian celebrity as well when you "glide" with us!"

Surely the experience must include rude stares, gestures, and disbelief at the misuse of wealth as locals and more discreet tourists are descended upon by seven otherwise able-bodied Americans on Segways.

Bikes, cars, and even gigantic tour buses aid in point-to-point transportation, but stay on the street. I can't imagine a quicker way to destroy the atmosphere of a Paris (Barcelona, Florence) neighborhood walk than this.

My first thought: That's gotta look really stupid.

Oh lighten up. It's a scooter. It's stupid goofy fun, and there's nothing wrong with fun.

(yes I'm giving this a try this Sunday)
