Can't wait for next run to .... ??

Nice! Love the look of your scoot! I see your from PG,Ca. I have family in Monterey. What an awesome area for riding scooters. What was wrong with your scoot that required 6 weeks of work?

Glad you've got your wheels back. I like the way you've personalized your scoot, very groovy.

Oh man! I go crazy if my scooter is out of commission for a couple of days. Ever since I've started riding scooters, I started to hate the idea of public transportation. $2.50 per ride, $5 round trip... That's almost gas for a week!

I'm glad you got it back. It must have been torture!

At first the engine stopped running had to wait a week or so just to get it to the shop, this was the fuel injector replaced. then on the way home the engine light came back on and it started up again. had to wait another 10 days to get her back to the shop, thenthe voltage regulator went out and i was eating up the battery. the shop said it would be two days for the part and an hour to install.turned out to be 10 days and over 3 hours to do. My wife said I'm getting a diagnostic tool from scooterwest for bday so I don't have to drive an hour to the shop on HWY 1.
