(TEXAS ( the back roads))


My scooter seems to be going faster with age (I only have 110 miles on it)... I got it up to 43 mph on the back road yesterday. I had to take it out even though it was 45 degrees and cold riding it...

Tomorrow is supposed to be better up in the mid 70s for the high temp. I can't wait for these warmer temps to come so I can ride it to work everyday.

Only thing I have noticed that needs to be improved with the scooter was the rear view mirrors. My shoulders seem to be a little wider than they were built for, so I have to lean in and tilt my head so I can see behind me. This throws me off balance a little, so it has to be a fast action. I need extensions for my mirrors, do they make these?

My CO-workers and friends are still laughing at me when they see me riding this scooter... it doesn't seem to fit my image... or so they think.

I would never have dreamed to be going at 40 mph speeds plus on the back roads. When I was thinking about ordering this scooter I was happy that it was 30 plus... and now 40 plus is better.

I have been thinking about modifying the lights. Has anyone done this? Get some bigger projection lights for the headlight... some L.E.D.s for the tail lights and turn signals for brighter appearances..? anyone? They are suppose to work better and take less power... plus you can make it look nice with L.E.D. highlights on the road under the fame for a nice effect... I might try this (when the weather warms up) and put a on/off switch on the scooter somewhere so I can drive without the L.E.D. effect.. (just in case I could get pulled over by the police for it) but I would have to argue the fact that I need to be seen at night for safety reasons, all these big monster trucks driving over the speed limit might run me over ;) . have fun be safe

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.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...


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.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
