Am I the only one who just enjoys just looking at scooters?

I mean I look at them like they were works of art, sculptures maybe. The colors, the shapes, the aerodynamics. I sometimes go look at mine parked in the garage before I go to bed. I just want to reassure myself that it is still there. Am I getting daft in my old age?

When a day goes by and for one reason or another I haven't ridden I go through a kind of withdrawal emotion. Well, It is not as profound as quitting smoking, but it is as real. Sorry to burden any of you with this confession, but I am smitten with, not just my scooter, but all of them. They are marvelous beasts.

When I am up in San Francisco and see them parked along the curbs (sometimes as many as 25 in a row) I become ecstatic. Send photos of your scoots. Let's make a scrap book-photo-album a virtual museum. Good Grief! I'm scooter-loony!!!

Just looking
by: Ron Goldwyn, Milford CT

I have a friend who was in the women's pocketbook business, and when I said to him look at the gorgeous babe, he says to me, do you mean the one with the Fendi bag. Yes his eyes never got past the handbag, while I set my sight a little bit higher.

I look at scooters also, but mainly to see what accessories were added.

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.

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.
