"A Swiss banker named Wim Ouboter breathed new life into the kick scooter when he invented a modern version to help him travel to his favorite sausage shop that he says was too far to walk to, but close enough that you didn't want to drive."
Because of Mike's love for good food, sausage and all things Swiss, he received the nickname Scooter.
