My Second Love

My Second Love

I live in the backwoods of the world and that place is called Australia I don't think you have many members from Ausy as yet... let's hope that improves soon.

My friends call me Vince and I have been riding M/Cs and scooters since I was 15 years old starting out with a James Cadet that was powered by a Villers 150cc engine and had a top speed of 50mph that is very slow by today's standards, When you compare it to the Bolwell scooter that I ride today which is also has 150cc engine but that has a top speed of 80mph,it has disc brakes fuel injection 12 volt lighting system now that is what I call real progress.

As I was saying I was 15 years old when I first became involved with M/Cs and Scooters and now I am 66 years old and I have had a lot of M/Cs and scooters and covered a lot of miles in that time and have seen a lot of places.

The only complaint I have about my Euro MX is that the fuel tank is to small it only holds 7 liters and I seem to be calling into service stations ( Petrol stations ) all the time. The Euro uses about 2.8 to 3 liters for every 100 klms covered, every time I take the scooter out I cover well over 100 klms and most of that I am traveling at speeds of 100mph or more. Don't get me wrong its a fantastic scooter and I love it.

Anyway it's been nice talking to you and joining this nice new club thanks for having me.

Welcome to the Club!
by: Kathi, Site Owner

Welcome, Vince, to our little online club. You're right, we don't have too many (visible) Aussies here yet, though I suspect we have probably had some lurkers that just haven't announced themselves. :)

Anyway, we're glad to have you, both here and on our Facebook page. Sorry it took me so long to get this posted; I've just been slammed with submissions the past 2 months, while taking some time off with my brand new grandchild. I'm catching up slowly...

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.

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.
