My name is Billy Conway, and I own a 1986 Honda Elite 150cc Deluxe scooter. I live in Morgan Hill, California. I have been riding this scooter for around 2 years, but I have been riding other scooters and motorcycles for about 6 years.

I bought this scooter in the first place to replace my old Chinese moped, a junk 50cc that broke down all the time and was slow, so I could reliably commute and take long trips on it.

I use my scooter for everything from commuting around to riding my 400+ mile adventures almost every weekend. The fastest I have seen on this scoot was 70 mph with the wind at my back, and the longest distance I have ridden on this scooter was around 1000 miles.

I really love this thing! Sure, I love shifting a good 6 speed manual at times, but this auto CVT is awesome and lets me think about the ride and enjoy it more, and I really enjoy long weekend rides, alone or with friends, to enjoy my life.

I love to ride anywhere. To the store downtown, or to another part of CA, anything is fun on the scooter!

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 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.
