We’ve only had our scooter for five days and it’s already hard to imagine how we lived without it. Five days and we’ve driven over 100 miles… on a smidgen over one gallon of gas.
Our scooter is a Kymco Agility 125, a workhorse with more than enough power to take us anywhere but the freeway. A new world has been opened. No more thinking about the hassle of moving the RV, no more thinking about parking in the heart of downtown. No more thinking “Do I really want to go bike there?” Now it’s such a simple decision: hop on the scooter and go check it out.
We got a really great deal on our ride, and as an added bonus Ayo has started giving me back massages at red lights. I can’t see us living without a zippy way to get about town. The gas saved and freedom gained is huge, and we were thinking that since our RV gas mileage is pretty crappy, that we could tow the RV with the scooter.
Our parents have taken the scooter well. We drive defensively, always wear our helmets, and have a ridiculously reflective jacket for night riding. Also, our horn is shockingly loud. I almost jumped out of my seat when I first tested it.
