David W. Dill - Proud Owner of Yamaha Vino 125 and Majesty 400 Scooters

by David W. Dill
(Sparta, Illinois, US of A)

I live in rural southern Illinois just outside of Sparta and have been riding for five years. My first scooter was a Yamaha Zuma but I quickly realized that it was too small for the riding I intended to do.

Next came the Vino 125. Well, southern consists of towns that are 5, 12, 17, etc. miles apart. You get the picture. Highway riding can't be avoided. So two years ago I purchased a used Majesty 400. Now, there's a SCOOTER, if you want to call it that!! LOL

I still ride the Vino 125 into and around town but the Majesty 400 is my main ride. I probably would sell the Vino if the chance presented itself.

I am 65 years old, married, and retired. My wife does not share my enthusiasm for riding so I ride alone all the time. I see other scooter riders on the road but never have a chance to talk to them. Oh, to have a scooter club in the vicinity!! That would be great. Or even a couple of riders to travel with once in a while. If you live fairly close to my location give me a ring.

To date I have only pictures of my scooters but I am not on them. I'll take some photos this Spring and submit them.

Vino 125
by: Darren Hankner

I,m looking to buy a well cared for Vino 125. I have cerebral palsy and anything larger than a 125cc is too heavy.

If you ever want to sell your Vino 125 find me on Facebook.

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.
