PaulN Yeah it’s always a joy to happily take your new scooter out of the box, lug it up onto a table so you can slime and line the tires, only to find out that some donkey at the factory torqued the brake disk screws down so hard they’re completely stripped and embedded into the disk. Especially after waiting an extra two months for the scooter because I wanted hydraulic brakes. Now I’m just waiting for the second one to arrive with the same problem. And I’ve had to light fires under their rumps to do everything. Return shipping label? Two days of emails and chat attempts. They finally sent it today but didn’t schedule the pickup as promised. So finally I went on the FedEx website and scheduled it myself. I guess I should be thankful they didn’t charge me $200 for the return shipping, which is they usually do.
Some sunny Sunday in the middle of the week, I might have a working scooter which I know how to ride well enough to go on a ride with someone else. At least I’ve had time to scope out some places to ride in the Mississauga/Etobicoke area near Centennial Park.
