What's New?

April 18, 2014

The prices of scooters have soared in some outlets while remaining unchanged in others. Global Trailaer and Safer Wholesale can't possibly expect a great deal of custom with their current inflated prices, at least not from wary knowledgeable buyers such as those who read this site.

Never let a non-scooter mechanic loose on your scooter without establishing some basic rules. I took mine to a car mechanic to put in a new braking system. He did the braking system beautifully but then decided to charge the battery -- on a full strength car charger. Well, it blew the battery, the rectifier and the stator.

Homeschooled sophomore, Zachary Senn, wrote this very nice little piece on the advantages of scooter riding. here's to homeschooling!

The TANK motorscooter has been orphaned by TANK and the dealership has gone under. Still runs though. All the parts are findable through online parts dealers and some pictures. Just replaced the rear brake system and the rear shock. Runs like new.

Getting ready for a summer of scootering. Gas prices are way up over $4/gal and the time has come to think about the scootering alternative. All of our scooter links have been revised; there are some wonderful new sources and many old ones have vanished.

October, 2010

With the demise of TANK, my 150 sporty is feeling like an orphan. However, there still seems to be no problem getting parts. All Chinese scooters seem to be very eclectic conflations of a common pool of parts and, with a little hunting and some pictures, it's not hard to find the right ones.

The Yike Bike
The New Zealand electric bike that folds into a shoulder bag.

The new Yike Bike looks very peculiar with a large wheel in front and a tiny one behind. The handlebar is on either side of the driver. It is the first foldable electric bike that really folds into something small enough to carry. It costs the earth though.

We are always changing pages, trying to keep everything current as we get new material and pictures, as scooters come and go, regulations change, and new experiences and anecdotes are shared. Here are some newly added pages:

A new section as been added on Stand-up Scooters.

A Vespa Motorscooter page has been added with an interesting video about that classic scooter of unequalled quality..

A page of Motorscooter Posters has been added. (By signing up as an affiliate with Allposters, we get permission to use their great scooter pictures on our site!) Here is one of our favorites:

Scooting in the United Kingdom Scooters are one of the best solutions to traffic restrictions in London.

Mopeds Misonceptions and definitions. Both motorscooters and mopeds are excellent economic choices, but which is which?
