A gas scooter store is the best place to purchase your new motor scooter. But where do you find scooter dealers and a local motor scooter store?
Depending on how large an area you live in, there may or may not be a scooter specialty store nearby. If there is, I'd recommend that as the place to start your shopping. A dedicated scooter store is most likely to have staff who are knowledgeable about scooters.
For instance, the scooter store I shopped at, Scooters of Boise, is owned by and staffed by people who ride and love scooters themselves. So they know what they're talking about and I felt that they gave me unbiased, helpful information that helped me make the best decision for my needs.
Scooter dealers are also more likely to offer a wider variety of brands and models, because that's all they sell. In a motor scooter store, scooters aren't fighting for showroom space with motorcycles and ATVs.
On the other hand, a motorsports dealer may be your only choice, or your most convenient one. You can probably find a perfectly good scooter at these stores too, although the staff may not be able to answer your questions as completely or accurately as the staff at a gas motor scooter store.
On the other hand, if you've already decided on a certain brand/model, such as a Honda or a Yamaha, then going to a Honda motorsports dealership or Yamaha dealer might make perfect sense.

Of course, you can always start with your local yellow pages directory when you're ready to find a scooter store. But information is limited in the phone book and if the business doesn't advertise, may consist of little more than an address and phone number.
I'm the type of person who likes to find out as much as I can before I do anything, so I've found that doing a little Internet research on a business first can be illuminating. Not every business has a website, but most do these days.
You could also see if any of my readers (or me) have published a review yet for your local scooter stores.
If you want to get started right now, you can use this handy Google search box to start looking. A good way to get really targeted results is to put in a term something like "gas scooter store in Boise", substituting your own city/town/county, of course.

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.
