  • Fantastic tobydoo - didn't realise you could buy second hard scooters. How brilliant - this will be the next step for my husband. Brilliant that you could put it in the boot. Enjoy - wishing you many adventures, with love TAD xx

  • They are really good. I am having short city break with friend in Cambridge. Arrived yesterday went straight out on scooter. Went miles. Still tiring but would have been unable to do at all without scooter!

    Using scooters does take getting used to - I'm only 45 but it gets me from a-b and can do things otherwise too difficult to do!

  • Fantastic, perfect time of year to get out & have some fun :)

  • Hello Tobydoo, brilliant that you are more mobile - laughed at the thought of racing your dog, great fun. Do scooters go uphill I wonder, I could do with one here in the Chilterns. Take care

  • Brilliant uplifting post. Pleased for you you have found some new independence - no stopping you now tobydoo.


  • Great post tobydoo, put a smile on my face, I really felt your joy!! :)

    click the link, you must feel something like this Ha Ha

    get on your scooter and ride :)

  • Great decision to buy a small unit that goes in the car boot, they provide a way of seeing and doing things that would otherwise be impossible The real advantage is that you can go into shops etc. because of the size, the big scooters become a bit of a monster in small spaces. I thought mine cost a lot of money, but to quote the advert the freedom it give you 'priceless'

    Enjoy it.

  • Fabulous idea. Go you have fun.

  • Great news Tobydoo,this is what I hope to do if I get pip.I,d buy a scooter like yours and get a car to lug it about in.My problem,well one of them,is space to keep stuff.So I,ll need a car big enough to keep the scooter in.Let,s hope I live long enough to have to sort that problem out lol.Enjoy your new found freedom ,all the best!.D.
