Crazy old me is going on a motorbike ride today, there is a 50% chance of rain but the sun is out now, things to remember, it has been raining for 3 days so loose gravel, i will be using country roads so muck left by tractors
exiting fields, there will be cars on the road so loony car drivers, i may have
to ride an isolated area so ufos.

No scooter for me. :(

The insurance prices are just INSANE!

A scooter can't even get a speeding ticket because they don't go fast enough and insurance is sky high!

Anyways, I wrote a message to the Provincial Minister and will be writing him a formal letter soon. I'm also going to go talk to our Local Provincial MP and will be writing an editorial to a newspaper about this problem.

How can we reduce smog when they are charging an arm and a leg on scooter insurance? Like, come on!

That is absolute stupidity that insurance on a scooter would be so high, I mean come on it is a tiny little 50cc engine not a sportbike. Anyway sorry to hear its not going to work out for you, hopefully something good will come out of the letters you write. Good luck.

Why would insurance be cheap on a little scooter? You can't go fast enough to get out of a cars way, and if you do crash it's not going to be nice.

At least a bike can zip out of danger. The best you can do is pray.

Why do you need full year coverage for a bike you only ride in the summer?

I don't know how it works in Ontario, but in Alberta you can save a lot of insurance money by taking a motorcycle training course....I don't know if the savings would also be for scooters as well though, you would have to check it out. The programs are very good though if you can get into one where they teach you the skill and then you test for your license at the end. Something you can look into anyway.

A coworker got an electric scooter. In the USA, these are legal on bicycle trails. This was one of the faster scooters, with a top speed near 25mph. The co-worker commuted by train, then use the scooter to commute from the train station to work and back to the train station.

It's called anabolic steriods.
