Hi kurt, just read about your site, and i agree with u that the C3 is good. Too bad this scooter don't sold in my country (i'm from indonesia by the way). bye....

100000 miles
by: Kurt

100000 miles that is a good distance. I have been riding my C3 everywhere and I have only put 3000 kms on it. If you look up cross Canada on a scooter there is a guy and his girlfriend who doubled 4500 kms on one that was stock. I hope to do it on mine one day. The reason I chose the C3 is because it is fuel injected and when you are going over mountains there is no carburetor to mess with. I have talk to lots of people with the ruckus who have gone cross country and they seem to breakdown lots but the C3 keeps on scooting along. What ever you chose you will have a blast, keep in touch and let me know how it goes. You can look me up on face book my name is Kurt Brosch there is only two of us on there so I am easy to find. I can suggests some mods if you get one

A friend and I put a stock C3 against my modified C3. It was alot of fun

by: Kurt

I wanted a 49cc scooter for awhile and looked at all of them. I chose the C3 because of where I live, being fuel injected 4 stroke I never have to worry about jetting the carb.
The under seat storage cant be beat, I still want the rear rack because I like to travel.
There are a lot of aftermarket part to make them faster….lol
And it is a comfortable nice handling scooter

Welcom to Kathi's Klan

Thanks for the great virtual ride. Beautiful country and a good job of taping it. You took those curves really well. Been riding long? Made me want to jump on my Blue Goose and hit the road, but I'm still in the old PJs. (That would have been a comedy.) I hope that was your front yard where you ended up spread eagle. Somewhere herein I have a little collection of photos from a ride I took around my hometown. I hope more riders will share tapes and photos of their rides. It is really all about people and our shared lives that counts in the end. Count me as one of your virtual riding buddies. The best to you. Keep the rubber side down.

Tell me about the Yamaho C3.

Hey Kathi
by: Kurt

What I did was I started in Revelstoke and went to Sicamous, Vernon, Lumby, Nakusp and then back up to Revelstoke. 455km in 13 hours 41 minutes and $8 in gas. (4 hours of that is rest time) The mountain range I went through is just east of the Rocky Mountains.

Lots of hills and winding roads, Beautiful country to ride. It was a lot of fun, I just need to find some brave people to join me next time.

Hey Kurt... Thanks for joining the club. Always room for more scooterists from Canada. :)

I embedded your video, so other visitors don't have to leave my site to see your adventure. Cool video... did you mount the camera on your scooter?

Beautiful country too... whereabouts was it? (I didn't recognize the name of the mountain range.)

Keep us posted...

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.
