My new ride.



I got the Blue one. The dealer said I would get about 80 miles to the gallon but I'm getting about 70. It has a top speed of 35mph.

I drive it back and forth from work (9.9 miles). The best part about it is in MD you don't need to tag it or insure it, and you don't even need a motorcyle license. All you need is a valid drivers license of any class. If I drive it to work 400 times It will have paid for itself in gas savings. Anybody else have one?

Even though the state doesn't require it, I'd definitely recommend getting some liability insurance on that guy just to cover yourself in case anything ever happens. Wouldn't be expensive, I don't think.

Re: My new ride.

No offense but I hate these things. They zip all around MD nearly causing accidents. I think if yo uare using the roads you should pay for them through registration and what not.

I saw one at Royal Farms slam into a SUV last summer. I am assuming the guy was not insured, I am sure whatever he paid to repair that SUV eat up his gas savings.

I know accidents can happen, but if you are careful and obey the laws you should be fine. Plus I live in the country. I pass maybe 3 cars on the way to work and there is a bike lane on the road for 75% of my trip. In the Evenings there is more traffic but again, I have a bike lane until I get to a back road.

And I do pay for the roads with my taxes and what not.

touchy touchy, geez. I was speaking in general.

Problem is a bunch of punks in the B-more area buy these things and fly all around the place (sidewalks include) and they are or going to damage property or hurt someone.

Plus, is it not illegal to use a motorized vechicale on a bike path?

Well, its not really a bike PATH. It a really wide shoulder. In some places you could ride 2 scooters safely on the "shoulder". I live on right off of route 40.

Anyway, the MVA told me I should use a shoulder if ther is one available.

Re: My new ride.

Helmet, yes....no?
It WILL happen.
The only question is, how much do you value your head?

Re: My new ride.

Nice....10 miles is long distance for a scooter. The back roads are just as dangerous as the highway, do take a safety course if you haven't already.

Re: My new ride.

This isn't a big issue in the rest of the world because they just have much smaller cars, seems like the US will move in that direction slowly. At least in the major cities.

Bikers have a saying. "The only bikers who haven't laid a bike down are new bikers or liars."

Scooters certainly are more stable but I promise you will put it down at some point if you plan on riding it as much as you say.
