I purchased a fast scooter for my first scooter. Just keep your new choice in eco for awhile and get comfortable on it before going full power. My old (50 years old) butt got jerked around a few times and had a couple of close calls but I got it under control now. I dabble on flat land bikes, play on a skateboard once in awhile and have a motorcycle background.
Buy a good helmet and wear it!
You have a local dealer? If so how lucky. That means they must offer test rides. My nearest ecooter dealer is 200 miles away but when/if I’m ready to upgrade WyrRyds is the first place I’m heading to.
