Is there a law that stipulates the age of your passengers on a Zuma in Indiana?

by Jessica

We have a large group of scooter riders in the area. Recently my kids have taken an interest in riding along with my husband or the neighbor.

Is there an age requirement for a passenger on a moped in the state of Indiana or is it left to the judgement of the parents? Our thought had been if my 3 yr old daughter can ride her 50cc dirt bike then she can ride along with her dad. Thoughts? Thank you... Jessica

Not Sure, But...

I have never heard that the law stipulates age of passengers or anything about passengers on a scooter. I'm not familiar with every state's laws yet, but it's not something I've seen for any of the states I have researched so far.

That being said, I definitely think you must let common sense guide you. While young children can certainly be taught how to hang on, what to touch, etc., they are still just children and probably very distractable. I would worry that their distraction could affect your concentration and focus on the road, which could be disastrous.

For short distances it's probably not that big of a risk, but still something to consider. Others may have a different opinion; that's just mine.

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.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
