Ladies, I’m still taking names for profiles! Leave me a comment letting me know you are interested in joining in with your story.
I found my next guest when reading Bobskoot’s blog, Riding the Wet Coast. Bobskoot met up with Scooterchick and her hubby Scootard and mentioned in his post she recently started blog, Adventures of Scooterchick. So I shot her an email and she graciously responded with her profile! My new friend Scooterchick is from BC, Canada.
How long have you been riding a scooter? Three years
How did you learn to ride? Self taught with the help of my patient husband “Scootard”.
What was your first scooter? Yamaha BWS 50cc
How many have you owned? Four including the one I currently own, a 250cc Bet and Win Scooter.
Why did you want to ride a scooter? Don’t want to be bothered with learning the gears, clutch, etc on a motorcycle. Just twist and go!
Tell us about your riding. Just for pleasure with my husband.
What advice do you have for women who ride or want to ride? Be patient with yourself when learning. Never get a bike because “someone” thinks you can handle it or it looks good. Do research, shop around, ask questions, wait a week or so and then make a decision. Impulse buying leads regrettable purchases, quick sales, a loss of money, and a bad taste left in your mouth from the whole experience. Get the bike that works for “you”.
What is the longest trip that you’ve taken on your scooter? Rode from British Columbia, Canada to Portland, Oregon
Do you belong to any motorcycle/scooter groups? Off or online? Yes
