Now here's a revelation for a motor thread. I haven't driven a vehicle for nigh on 40 years. I just got plain old bored with it all. The traffic, other drivers, the cost.. and I was developing road rage before it became a recognised concept..!!
Now, however, due to a smoker's lifestyle and the fact that the nasty, noxious 'baccy' weed has robbed me of my mobility. I have to find an alternative. February 14th 2020 was a turning point for me. I saw a consultant at my local hospital and he informed me that, following the extensive tests they had done, either I quit smoking or, within a year, he'd be taking one, or even both, my legs off..!!
That came as quite a shock as you might imagine. Well my wife and I had planned to do some grocery shopping and, once done, I called in a a Vape shop and got kitted out with all I needed. And I haven't had a cigarette since..
So how does that relate to motors etc. Well it was decided that I needed a mobility scooter but I didn't want one that made me look like Grandpa. So I got this....
British made, it will cover 45 miles on a full charge, it is road legal with three speeds - 4-8-15 mph, it is off-road capable and will handle 30 degree inclines. Full all round suspension, lights, turn indicators and hazzards. Those tyres are pneumatic but I have another set of wheels with solid tyres. It's incredibly stable and great to ride.

This scooter has given me a new lease of life.. time to consider customising it..
