Thanks For Stopping By
OK, so you've pulled over, killed the engine, tugged off your helmet and
gloves, sat down at your computer, and that big grin is still on your
face. That's why we're here.
JustGottaScoot.com is dedicated to the fun of scootering. We think it's very
cool that something so practical and easy can be such a good time! The NEWS
section of this site has recent and upcoming happenings and is where we will
post website changes. The STUFF page will
take you to our store where you can purchase COOL
SCOOTER STUFF and will include links to places that we recommend. We ONLY
post links to vendors we have ACTUALLY USED and believe offer a
good value to their customers. In other words, no "paid
advertisements" here. BLAH (as in
blah, blah, blah) is the place to go if you are so into scooters that you
don't mind the blathering of a confirmed scooter loony (me) and will
include bios, stories, rides, pictures and other mindless ramblings. LINKS
is our page of "connections" to other sites. SEARCH
allows you to (you guessed it) search our site.
Thanks again for visiting, see you on the road.
of the Genuine Hooligan 170i Scooter
Just how capable can a small urban scooter be? Can a person have sporty
handling, great brakes, quick acceleration, and practical functionality
in one scooter? Yes, a person can. Can a person have this scooter in a
wide assortment of bright, shiny colors? Nope. Can a scooter reviewer
get over it and just accept the flat finishes on new scooters? That
remains to be seen.... click here to read the review.
We just received word from Genuine Scooters that a recall on the new
Stella Automatic scooter is pending. The ECU has a potential issue that
could cause the scooter to not start or to stall when running. The good
folks at Genuine are on top of this and are already shipping replacement
parts to dealers. Even though the recall has not been finalized, Genuine
is doing their best to ensure that the issue is correctly as quickly as
possible. If you own a Genuine Stella Automatic,
contact your dealer right away to have your ECU replaced.
of the Lance Cabo 150 Scooter
Lance brings us another Taiwanese scooter (manufactured
by SYM) that offers good quality, a great price and a whole mess of
fun riding. Designed to be utilitarian and sporty, I rode the new Cabo
150 on roads all over St. Paul and off roads.... well... you'll have to
read the review.
Quite a few people have emailed, asking about
cheaper choices for scootering. I thought it might be a good idea to
post a few thoughts about this topic. Then I thought I should offer
some suggestions of brands and models to look for. After that, I
threw in a couple of thoughts on gear and other expenses. Pretty
much goes without saying that this ended up being one LONG tirade on
the topic of cheapskate scootering. DO NOT
bother with this if you are easily bored.
Thinking About a
Low-End Chinese Scooter?
While there are certainly some decent Chinese brands (CFMoto
comes to mind), there are a
great many that are low-price, low-quality, and even
low-safety. Click on the image above to hear how a British
entrepreneur found out about the challenges of manufacturing in China.

pedal bicycle business). With outstanding function, great value
and rider-based features these are the bags you've been searching for.
My wife and I recently decided to get down to one
car. We have scooters (more than any sane person would have)
and just weren't using the second car very much. Getting our insurance
renewal probably had a lot to do with this decision. We are lucky to
live in a metro area with a very good public transit system and I ride
a scooter to work as often as I can in any event. Click on the image

mopeds, just about anything with two wheels and a motor. Several Twin
