Let them laugh at me

Let them laugh at me

I'm happy I got my scooter.. I'm not sure anyone is paying attention... but I tend to MOD out all my vehicles. My 1967 Beetle has been rebuilt and repainted. My 2008 Dodge Caliber is currently being transformed into something better than it was intended to look like...

So when it comes to the lil scooter... I am thinking about making it better... right now I'm just happy that it is working out so well for me. I've been driving it all over the place on nice days and to work on nice days... soon driving it to work almost everyday so I can keep the miles off my Dodge. (Believe it or not, I am in a forum for that too, a member of the Caliber forums)

You can see all my vehicles in that picture up above... the VW is inside the garage. I rode my scooter today because it got up in the low 70s. I had to mess with the idle screw because it was acting like it was going to stall when I sat at the stop signs and red lights. I think I got it where it works now...

The headlight doesn't dim when it sits at the red light. I'm still getting poked fun of when someone asks if I rode the scooter to work... but when I say yes I did and smile, they don't seem to want to say anything bad anymore... (They've been asking me if I rode the scooter on days it is raining or icy)

That's when they laugh... when I say NO... it's raining... I have to remind them I do own two more vehicles... so they won't be laughing... Someday they'll get used to the idea.

Until then... I will give the anti scooter lovers the eye... they won't be laughing long... adios for now

Hey Tex... I know I'm getting older, but I don't see any signs of your vehicles in that pic above... just your "superness". :) What am I missing?

However, I did enjoy your account of the scooter life. Very entertaining...

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.
