Just Gotta Scooter - Silly Scooter GrinOK, 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 mindlessCLICK HERE to jump to our calendar of scooter-related events ramblings. LINKS is our page of "connections" to other sites. SEARCH allows you to (you guessed it) search our site.

Second Car or Scooter?

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 above to open a spreadsheet to help you see if this might work out for you.
