Vulture Mine Road Club Ride to Wickenburg

Vulture Mine Road Club Ride to Wickenburg

Went on my first long ride with the Scooter Club of Metro Phoenix and Prescott. All told the round trip covered 214 miles round trip from my front door. Actual ride after meet-up (25 miles from home) was from Avondale, AZ to Wickenburg via Vulture Mine road. Beautiful desert; temp in low 70s; bright sunshine; no "cagers" to speak of; paved 2-lane road, total of ten scooters -- but who's bragging?

We met with a group from Prescott and had lunch and conversation. Headed back about two in the afternoon. Got home just before dark.

Buddy 150 scooter never missed a beat. Rider in front of me had a Buddy 125. Same story. In the pictures, I'm the one with the bright yellow-green hi-viz vest.

Ride On!

Vulture Mine Road Ride
by: Happy Old Scoot

It was about 3 1/2 hours eac each way from the meet-up spot. It took me about 30 minutes from my house to the meet-up. I figure about 8 hours riding plus an hour for lunch. Surprisingly, it wasn't all that tiring. I stayed pretty relaxed (had to keep telling myself "loose hands, loose legs" -- especially when I was cold. My Buddy 150 is easy on the bones.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.
