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.

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

a scooter to work as often as I can in any event. Click on the image

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
