Any good suggestions about where I can get mirrors with longer stems?

by Artist Bob
(Half Moon Bay, CA)

The stock mirrors on my scooter look great. They are fairly large and aerodynamic, but I can't really see to the rear of my scooter without weaving in my lane. I'd like some easy to add mirrors that would give me a rear view of more than my elbows.

I don't think the small round, stick-on fisheye lenses are what I want or what will work. Any suggestions???

In addition to Ron's idea these might work.

They look strong and made for the job.

Thanks, Ron. You are truly the Rube Goldberg of scooter modifications. And no I hadn't checked the Mod area of the postings before. you have a gizmo that will take care of the stiffness in my replaced knee?

Thanks and ride free, Bob

May I suggest that look at all the modifications that have been posted. One happens to answer your question. I must assume you did not go there before asking.

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.
