Scooter Recommendations ?

Postby piratg » Wed Feb 13, 2008 7:39 pm


New here as you can tell.

I have few questions regarding my dilema and wondered if any one had any thoughts.

Im basically disabled person thats looking to try to get mobile , i dont have mobiity scooter - yet but Im working on it , and in the meantime have been looking at scooters.

I notice , as others have pointed out these fun2ride scotters though at 14 mph ,Id almost rather go with something else more powerful if I could get away with it and wondered if any one had any recommendations that didnt run into the thousands.

Ideally something that could go 40 -50 miles at 25 - 30 mph - thought his may be asking a lot.

Perhaps these fun scooters are ok given how cheap they are but they look like chinese imports which ive heard arent so great.

thanks again

Hi ya

The reason your normal scooter is only able to do 14mph is a legal one :roll:

Keeping it at that means anyone over the age of 14 or is it 12 can drive it and you dont need a licience/MOT/insurance.

Once you break that barrier your then playing with the big stuff that does require all the legal bits and bobs and will generally cost a few 1000 :(

Most of the stuff now are chinese imports :( , to be fair as long as you realise what you've bought and treat it as such they are noramally quite OK.
It is worth stripping them down and re-assembling them with more greese etc as this is quite often what lets the stuff down I've found, also treat it with kid gloves a bit.

Does that help in any way ?

I reject reality and substitute my own !!!!!!
