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
includes 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.
Scooter Should I Buy? - UPDATED
Our "most commonly asked question" gets an update
in the "my favourites" section. Remember, these are MY choices in
each classification. It has been a few years since this section was
updated and there have been some changes. The Genuine Buddy and
RoughHouse are the longest running kings of moped-legal scooters, but
how much longer can 2-strokes worm their way into the USA marketplace? CLICK HERE to see the
my updated favourites.
of the SYM Mio 50
It has been over ten years since we last reviewed the SYM Mio 50.
Luckily, Alliance Powersports (the USA SYM distibutor) is still friendly
to JustGottaScoot. That, combined with the generosity of Scooterville in
Minneapolis, allowed us to spend a few days with the Minnesota
moped-legal foru stroke scooter. CLICK HERE
to read the review.
of the Royal Alloy GT150
Genuine Scooters brings us the metal-bodied, SYM engined, Lambretta
styled Royall Alloy Grand Tourer 150. We road the proto last year and
now spend some time with a production version.

City Rides - A GREAT Idea
Memphis Tennessee is a tough town for commuting. Traffic is heavily
congested, public transit is slow, residential areas tend to be some
distance from workplaces and cost of vehicle ownership is high. Thanks
to the support of Jay Martin of
Andy Nix has been able to launch a non-profit scooter solution!

This is Pretty Cool
Need some practice before you take your written motorcycle permit
test? I was recently made aware (thanks Mary) about a website
that provides free access to a wealth of free online motorcycle
tests based on the actual contents of each State’s Motorcycle

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.
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
often hear people talk about fuel savings making their scooter "free"
to own. Can it be true? Click on the graphic to open or download a
Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Fill in the light blue boxes and the
spreadsheet does the rest!
