Ego Scoota still going strong

October 29, 2008

I haven’t blogged on here for a while due to the fact that I’ve had no problems of any sort 😀 – It really is plain sailing.

A few people have asked about getting their electric scooters derestricted. I would say that if you need a scooter that is going to zip about faster than 30MPH, then the Ego Scoota is prob not quite for you. However if you are going to be doing a shortish commute or need something to get you from A to B in the most economical of fashions then I would indeed join me and take the plunge.

I hear on the grapevine that Christmas is only round the corner. (According to some shops it has been since September! :P) – What better way to see in the New Year, and a new start with one of these beauties.

I have saved countless pounds in petrol money since I started a few months back and it’s serious fun to be on! – Sitting at the traffic lights in complete silence is just strangely pleasing. The thought that the car in front is spending more sitting at the lights than you did to charge up for the next 40 miles can only make one feel smug and brings an enormous smile to your face.

So get a smile on your face and get yourself a scoota! – You won’t regret it.

That’s right! You won’t pay a penny in road tax if you decide to purchase one of these lean green, emission reducing, thrilling machines.

You can charge her up like your mobile phone in any 13 amp wall socket, and can be on your bike with a full charge again in 3-6 hours.

Ego Electric Scooter / Scoota Insurance

July 30, 2008

I rang yesterday and accepted / paid for my quote of £151 fully comp. So I have now set the wheels in motion (so to speak) towards getting a number plate. No doubt there will prob be some form of problem when I send my drivers licence off to the DVLA because my address for my car is still my old one (as that is where it is kept) which is different to my current living address. Only time will tell.

I did do a bit more whizzing around the car park at my flats and can safely say that my mates love it and are indeed very surprised at how “cool” it looks. They, like me, believe that they will surely be a massive hit with the good people of this country that wish to be a little greener and to give Gordon a proverbial poke in the eye by avoiding rediculous petrol prices!

My mate jumped on the back (a combined weight of 21 stone) and we still got up to speed without too much difference. We were both very comfortable and still felt very stable indeed.

Hopefully my licence plate should be starting to progess towards me so that I can get on the actual road and do some full “distance tests”

Nippy little Scoota

July 15, 2008

I had a little whizz around my car park last night with lights on and horns blaring. They aren’t kidding when they say that it is silent at a standstill! – Once you give the throttle a twist you are off! – It’s very nippy and because it’s electric it has great torque at the low end, so I found myself getting up to 25 in a matter of seconds (I would have gone faster but I was fast running out of tarmac in the car park and could see the wall rapidly approaching! :D) (Luckily the breaks are equally as impressive!)

My Flat mate had a quick spin also, and was very impressed – It really does feel very sterdy when you are on, and you can easily imagine zooming between cars and buses on the road.

I’m very much looking forward to applying for my number plate, and will keep you posted on how long that process takes.

All in all it so far gets a very strong two thumbs up from me 😀

The kindness of strangers

July 14, 2008

So I had to go back to my folks on Sunday to take the Iron Crate, that my lovely little Ego Scoota came in, to the local dump site. This bad boy was not going to get in my car, as it was slightly too large (not to mention that after a week in the natural elements it had gone rather orange with rust).

After realising that it definately was not going to get in the car, I elected to walk it down there (I live just over a mile away).

So my mum and I donned our finest gardening gloves and started our trek down there with vigour. After many a stop and swapping hands we had managed to get the cumbersome object to within 500 yards of the dump. We had put it down to rest and were having a chat when some guy in a big truck pulled up and asked us if we were trying to get it down there and would we like a lift with it. Obviously we jumped at the chance and before we knew it we were down there.

After putting this safely in the corner, (where the attendent had said to …. he was probably going to sell it for scrap so at least it will get further use), we were on our way back out when another car pulled up and asked what we had been doing walking with that thing as they had seen us. After explaining, they too offered us a lift.

it just goes to show that we can all do our little bit to help. Many Thanks to those kind dumpers 😀

Ego on it’s way

July 7, 2008

I will be receiving my new Ego Electric Scooter tomorrow evening (so I’m told by the delivery driver) – I will have to see if the registration etc has all been done for me (as I’m hoping it should be, seeing as I paid £50 extra for it)

I’ll then get it charged up and see if I can give it some serious testing to answer any of your questions. Feel free to post any queries you may have on here and I will see if I can find out for you.

Next step will be to find some form of helmet to go with it – I’ll post any details of any accessories I end up getting on here.

Yours excitedly
