The Cargomobile

The Cargomobile

After yesterday's successful outing on the moped with the cargo box it was time to hit the road again. As everybody knows, a busy family is always in need of something from the grocery store so more goods were needed to keep the house in fine running order. Since it was a reasonably nice day it also allowed me to go where goods were cheapest.

A gallon of milk was first on the list so I headed to the local convenience store where I saved money over all the other places in town. Then across the street to buy shampoo at the Dollar Store for the paltry price of two dollars. Finally a trip to the supermarket in the Village where a tub of margarine was only two dollars also.

Figuring I was sipping fuel in the moped this was an economy run of heavy proportions. People were watching me toss my purchases into the box and some asked me (again) how much gas mileage I was getting. All it cost is some extra time and I'm willing to spend it saving gas and wear and tear on the cars.

Plus riding the thing is a hoot. I still reach for a clutch lever (not there) every so often. Auto clutch is going to take some time to get used to as I shift these things. Otherwise it performs just fine.

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.
