So... this is my scooter. About 7 months ago I sold in my car and upgraded to a scooter, a Honda Today 50. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. So here is 'Living with a Scooter' review..
Having a scooter has been so fun. I had never ridden one before but it was so easy to learn and is such a lovely way to get around. Its so beautiful to be out in the open, you can hear, feel, smell and see so much more than in a car. Its so liberating, and forces you to slow down (as mine doesn't go faster than 60km/hr). Some people say it's super dangerous on a scooter, but I never feel unsafe riding around and I think you just need to be alert and careful when your riding around.
What's even better is I go through hardly any fuel at all. I use about 5 Liters of fuel in 2-3 weeks, which is super cheap and means i'm not consuming heaps of resources just to get around. It is good though to still have a car available to use, and probably would be hard if we didn't have that. Helps for going grocery shops, or when you need to travel further than down the road, or faster than 60km/hr. A few years ago morgan owned a scooter and go by without access to a car. He used to carry all his groceries on the back, so it is definitely possible.
