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.
Scooter Cannonball - 2
has been some unpleasantness recently on Facebook and some scooter
and motorcycle forums about the two different Scooter
Cannonball events. JustGottaScoot.com takes a lot at the two events
and offers up our opinion. CLICK

More About Scooters &
Scooter Madness Blog has a posting from Erik Baeumlisberger about
the potential problems that fuel blended with ethanol can cause in a
lot of scooters, particularly the air-cooled and carbureted scooters
so commonly seen on the road in the USA.

of the Kymco MyRoad 700i
Here's the second of that two-in-a-row review spurt I mentioned earlier.
We've been waiting for the Kymco MyRoad 700i maxi-scooter since 2010. It
took a while to actually get here, but our very generous friends at
Scooterville let us take a real, live MyRoad out for several days.

of the Lance PCH 150
How about that? Months and months of no new scooter reviews and now
we've done two in a row. This time it's the Lance PCH 150, built by SYM.
It's sporty, it's inexpensive and it's fun. Best of all? I got to ride
it during a couple of gorgeous late summer days.

of the Piaggio Fly 150
Yes, I know, it's been more than a while
since our last review. To make up for that gap, we're bringing you a
very cool new Piaggio Fly 150 with a fuel injected three-valve engine.
First they gave us the incredible BV 350 and now a sweet 150 - Piaggio
is going up a notch or two in my book. CLICK

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
