The scooter came last June 1st. They delivered right to the door and the driver stayed to help open the huuuuge box It looks bigger in real life than in the photos. Sharp styling, easy to operate and read the control panel. The Captain’s seat is super well made and comfy.This is a solid machine. No jiggles or rattles and it really is stunning to look at. It cam already assembled – it just needed to be charged. Tuesday morning was the first run. I tried it before Dad did and boy, this thing moves. I was going so fast, my eyes teared up. It is stable and quiet on gravel trails (most of the trails around here are gravel) Dad took it to the mall and tried it in the aisles of the grocery store. He carried a little basket on the floor as there really isn’t a cargo basket that comes with it. There are two little storage areas behind the front shield but they wouldn’t hold a lot of groceries. I attached a backpack through the headrest so Dad can carry his groceries. I think we are going to get a large rear basket just for the sake of convienience. The only problem he had was going through the check out. He had to fold the mirrors in as they extend a little wide
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday brought more excursions (60 kms so far) and Dad is extreeeemely happy with our choice. I rigged up a heavy duty rain poncho to keep him and the scooter dry. He can just fold it up when not in use. If he had to rate it out of 10, I think he might just give it an 11. He keeps saying that it just doesn’t look like an “old fart” scooter. He was expecting to be disappointed as the photos make it look so good. Fortunately, his expectation was wrong. He was genuinely suprised and pleased when we made opened up the box. I asked him if he would recommend this scooter and he said he wouldn’t recommend any other scooter than the EV Rider Royale 4.
Bye for now
