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 includes 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.

Which Scooter Should I Buy?Which Scooter Should I Buy? - UPDATED
September, 201
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.

Review of the 2019 SYM Mio 50cc ScooterReview of the SYM Mio 50
August, 2019
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.

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. CLICK HERE to read the review.

My City RidesMy City Rides - A GREAT Idea
August, 2018
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 Juice Plus, Andy Nix has been able to launch a non-profit scooter solution! CLICK HERE or on the image for more info.

DMV Motorcycle Permit Test Database This is Pretty Cool
March, 2018
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 Manual. CLICK HERE or on the graphic to check it out. 


Thinking About a Low-End Chinese Scooter?

Horror story of building scooters in China

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. 

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.
