Doyle Frazier - Proud Owner of a 1998 Honda Helix Scooter

(Lebanon, Oregon, USA)

I have always loved motorcycles and bought the Honda Helix scooter around 2000. I had a stroke in early 2009 and due to the poor lifting ability of my left foot, my scooter is all I can ride. That's cool, however, as I have always enjoyed it.

I have it set up for geocaching. I have a telescoping walking stick mount and a nice GPS mount and for those into geocaching it is also a travel bug.

I would not part with my scooter. It sat out in the shop for over a year while I was getting back to where I could ride it. It fired up as if it was just waiting patiently and took right off.

As far as why I bought it in the first place, I just like it and the fact it was red made it special. My geocaching name is doylefish.

Geocaching on a Helix
by: Doyle Frazier

I had a stroke in 2/09. I can still ride and enjoy the Helix. I built a holder for my Garmin G
PS that centers under the handlebars, I clamped a section of 1 inch pvc piping to the rear grab bar for a ski poll walking stick and made a cupholder. I have a Ebay top box (pretty well made and exact color. The helix scoots along and since it is not heavy it parks almost anywhere. I have taken it up some pretty steep hills also. You have to be careful comming down because you basically coast. The helix is very versitile.

Welcome to our little online scooter club, Doyle! We are very glad to have you here. We don't have too many Oregonians as yet, so you're a bit of a trailblazer. :)

I was intrigued by your mention of geocaching on your scooter. How does that work? Do you ride off road on it to geocache? Do tell...

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.

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.
