    Really simple to put together thankfully, missus managed it quite easily under good supervisory skills;-) hehe. Seems more rapid than the ones I've hired before, screen showed 8.5mph!! gets there in a couple of seconds too, really quite impressed. Does understeer when caning in gravel, but handles great on inclines and off road. Gets light on nearside when you put full lock at full speed :-), couldn't get the back end stepping though :-(. No wet grass but think it will be fun....will see when it rains.

    Very comfy seat with cool red piping, not quite Recaro but pretty close. Proper alloys too with black not grey tyres. Very light on the steering so will last well into failing strength which is a real bonus.
    Is it cool, very !! neighbours came out and had a go, they thought it was great. Very impressed with the design too and got a few admiring looks when drove it over to the pub.
    In all seriousness, it's a great bit of kit and very much worth the price. Highly recommended.

    Glad you like it, sounds great. If you haven't already done so, don't forget to register your scooter with DVLA. If you don't you will be liable for a fine of 80.
    Best wishes

    Thanks Jeannie, I'll get that sorted today. I certainly do intend having fun, next stop.... Britains got talent doing stunts on it ;-). Gotta be more entertaining than some of the rubbish they put through lol
