My Story: I am a month away from turning 63. I bought a my scooter last year. My family and friends think I'm crazy. But I never did live my life according to other people's standards, and I don't intend to start now. It's nice to know others out there feel the same way.

Sheila's Scooter Update - Sept. 30, 2008
by: Sheila

I have been too busy out scootin' around with two of my friends to get back to my computer. We have taken a few long trips. The weather this fall is beautiful with temperatures some days around 19 degrees C, which is warm this time of the year in my neck of the woods.

I bought a windshield because we have lots of wind here. I had 2 rides before I broke that, went down, sliding on gravel. Well my husband patched it up, and put it back on. A few scratches and a patched up windshield does gives my bike "character" ha ha!.

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.
