I thought that I had updated... Maybe not. This is the update. It is cold here in California, too cold to ride. Not without a warm skirt and a gigantic sheet to cover my whole body. So I tape men and women on wheels. Got a Youtube page also to post them (http://www.youtube.com/noproblema).

I like composing the video, adding music... adding transitions and talking with rider friends. It is a virtual way of imagining I am on the wheels. Anyone from Simi Valley, Moorpark, or Thousand Oaks with a scooter that would like to ride short routes close to town, leave a message, please. I need a partner to ride.

This is my latest upload:

I am trying to get to 1000 views, step by step... I think they count the owner's clicks, so maybe the ones I have are mostly mine, he-he, hi-hi.

I set my Buddy to rest for a while and turn her on every two or three days. Waking up fast so far, Snowflake! It has only 130 miles on her belt and I hope to get to 500 during spring if I find someone to ride with.

Yep! I am trying to gain courage for that. I am normally very cold sensitive; born and raised in the Caribbean. I know there are some days I could , I may... I will post that when I do. I think I will.

Thanks you for the push back and incentive. I know (in my mind) it cannot be that bad when I see guys in NH, MA, riding with still traces of snow on the street sides and coming out of their garages pushing slowly their bikes on snow covered driveways.

It Ain't So Bad!

Just because the temp is down some, don't give up riding. As long as there is no rain, ice, or snow, and the temp is in the mid 40's or above, you can still ride. I layer myuself like an onion for my 10 mile commute -- sweater, then sweats over my work clothes (I run the detention hall at a high-school), then a war-surplus flight suit (pockets all over and baggy enough to fit over everything, street shoes, lined windbreaker with hood that slips under my full-face helmet. Warn and flexible gloves. I'm pretty comfortable riding until below 40 degrees.

As long as the weather is fair, you cheat yourself out of a lot of enjoyment by not riding on a sunny, brisk day!

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.
