What is a reasonable scooter for two passengers?

by Anonymous

My boyfriend and I live in Chicago and are looking to buy a scooter. We both want to be able to ride on it at the same time, which has been the major issue while scooter shopping.

He is 6'6" and weighs 250 lbs and I weigh 130 lbs, so we need a scooter with a larger weight capacity. We won't be taking it on the highway, just around the neighborhood.

We would like to keep it under $3000 if possible, maybe a little higher if needed. Brand isn't important to us, but we don't want it to fall apart in a year or so.

We have heard so many different things from different dealers and we really need help! Could you please recommend a few options for us?

Thank you!

Used 250cc

Go to Craig's List and look at used Honda Reflex or Kymco 250cc scoters. You should be able to find something in the $2000 to $3000 without too many miles. As much as I like China scooters if you have that much money a used Taiwanese or Japanese scooter is a better bet.

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.

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.

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