Linda loves her Piaggio Fly scooter!

Scooter Owner Since: July 2008

Reasons for Owning a Scooter: Because scootin' is fun!, It's good for the environment, I can save money on gas, To ride with my friends/partner/family

How Used: Around town, Just for fun rides, Back & forth to work

Longest distance I've ridden: Less than 10 miles one way

Fastest speed I've gone: Around 35 MPH

My Story: Just learning, did take and pass the Motorcycle course, written. One evening on a motorcycle, had problems with the clutch and gear shifting.

Cyle was too big for me to handle and started raining. I did have a mishap when first had the scooter and there is still a little fear in me and was more so on the motorcycle.

Winter Ride

I am in Orange Tx and we will be riding over to La tomorrow to visit the Sabine Wildlife refuge and do some birding. It will be a cold weather ride for us (Mid fifties)

Winter Is the Scooterists' Enemy!
by: Kathi, Site Owner

I love winter, but it does make it difficult for those of us who live in wintry climates to get out there and scoot, doesn't it?

I live in Boise, Idaho, where long-time residents told me, "Oh it hardly ever snows in town, just up in the foothills..." Well, I've lived in town for the past 2 years and so far, scooting in the winter is not a valid proposition, as there is often snow, ice, and slush at least on my development's roads.

Sigh... spring will come eventually... :-(

Snow on the ground here in Wisconsin and cannot ride. Every other day go to the garage and start up the Scooter due to the cold weather. I sit on the scooter hoping for nice warm weather. Few more months.

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.

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.
