Kymco People S125 - Aug. 2012.
Is it possible to use a scooter for something other than everything? I don't know whether I'll ride year round. Probably not when there's snow/ice/slush on the streets. Then again, anything beats the TTC.
I had an ebike for 2 years. Too slow, way too weak on hills. With a long commute to work, and friends & family living in the outskirts, public transit is an expensive and time-consuming way to travel. I figured having motorized transportation that's cheap on gas would be a great way to get around. So far I haven't been disappointed. Cars are just way too expensive, and I've given them up.
Since spring 2011 (although having had an e-scooter gave me a head start, as did driving a car for ~17 years).
About 250km (London-Etobicoke along secondary roads).
Just got my M2 last summer, so obviously I'm not an experienced rider. I did manage to graduate from a 50cc generic piece of junk, which proved far too dangerous on TO streets, to a Kymco People S125.
