What is a reasonable distance to drive a scooter in a day?

by Becky
(London, England)

I'm considering traveling across Europe on a scooter, but I'm not really sure how feasible it would be. Ideally I'd like to go quite far (like 1,000 miles in total), but I'm not so sure that would be doable on a scooter.

I was thinking of driving something like a 125cc. Any information you have on how long and how far you can typically stay on a scooter in a day or how long you think it would take to travel such a distance would be greatly appreciated.

Becky. HI. Hope you are doing great. I guess it will be a fun totally to travel all across the Europe through scooter. It's going to be great. You know phd dissertation writing are having traveling and tourism as a big topic of discussion. In which different things and problems related to traveling are discussed including transport. M sure you'll find your solution.

I'm going to say this, and you can make of it what you will: running a cell phone lookup is the only way to identify unknown wireless callers ... well, in the US anyway - and that is, really, what matters most! Isn't it?

Don't have money to buy a building? You not have to worry, because it is real to receive the credit loans to solve all the problems. Therefore get a term loan to buy all you require.

I have a Kymco Agility 125

and I've gone as much as 200 miles in a day. At that rate you could travel 1000 miles in 5 days. I think it'd be more fun to ride 75-100 miles a day at most and stop and see the sights along the way, though, if I were seeing any part of Europe.

Becky... I'd say go for it! I've read a couple of accounts of people riding the 125cc Genuine Buddy across America:

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...

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
