Debbieseaman2015 If it helps, we’ve seen poor reviews of Gotrax in general, as it doesn’t appear they provide long-term support. However, from our personal experience with the G4, it feels well made and has lots of the features we would want beginner riders to have.
“Riding for fun” can mean lots of different things/speeds, and for me is under 20 mph. The G4 is great for this, as its max speed with a 165 lb rider is 20 mph. It’s an inexpensive scooter with lots of great features.
BTW, we’ll be discussing the best scooters under $500 on our Liveshow tomorrow at 4 PM PDT. Hope you can join us to learn more about what might work best for you and your husband!
