How will this 'annoy the neighbours'?

They seem unable to show a red one! Silver has taken its place.

Delivery cost is difficult to find. Anyone know the cost of delivery?
csf

do you need to buy a battery or does it come with one please?


Hmmm, I would have thought it would come with a battery but listed under Accessories is a battery...?

Thanks EXZAMS.
My issue with this is that they are banned on public footpaths and you're not allowed on the road with it without Road Tax (I know, only in the UK). So the problem is.... where you gonna use it?
the park
between the front room and kitchen?
Blasphemous

Cycles are also banned from use on the footpath - so I have NEVER seen a cyclist breaking the law.

Yeah Right!


Anyway, let the rozzers charge you. That will make the scooter go for longer!!
I'd have thought these would get cheaper...bought a JamBuster 100W from Play.com years ago for £50 delivered. It can carry someone just over 80KG but it moves...slowly...not that I'm above 80KG, it nipped around to the shops for milk and break nicely. Haven't used it in ages though...

rizla, I'm with ya mate. I think the law is an ass but that's the law. And Yeah, I ride on the pavement sometimes when I have my young child with me. A cycle however, is permitted on the road, this is a 'motorised' means of transport and therefore requires a Road Tax Certificate to be lawfully 'driven' on the roads. I saw a young lad getting stopped for riding one of these on the pavement once (because obviously he was a danger to society and that was/is an effective use of Police time!). We have ALL seen people, whole families, riding on the pavement. Personally I have no problem with it (done in a safe manner of course and where young children are involved), but I have yet to see someone being stopped for riding their bike on the pavement. I'm not saying it doesn't happen. I'm sure there are numerous Police Officers who are ensuring the UK is a safer place by stopping and charging people for riding their bikes on the pavement. I know I sleep soundly at night in the knowledge that there are Police Officers out there who take the law TO THE LETTER. Oh.... wait a minute, I'm forgetting, it's 'not their fault', 'they have no discretion', 'I'd be grateful of one when a crime does happen'.....YES! I would/will be grateful of the assistance of a Police Officer if/when I was a victim of crime but obviously I may have to wait while they deal with a family riding their bikes on the pavement.

I digress. My point was/is that this has limited use in my opinion and that's going to cause upset when little Johnny wants to ride his motorised scooter on Christmas morning but you've got to take him to the park to use it. And even then, I'm not convinced that that will be lawful.
I never realised I was a "victim" of crime until I read the above post. I had a kid ride round my car while it was parked in the street the other day and he used both the road and pavement to do so.

I may well have to make a forceable citizens arrest next time
Surely the road tax would be free due to the emmisions band for CO2 being 0 ?

You see... we just don't realise how dangerous society is!

Could be. We need a Police Officer to inform us of our rights. They'll all be tied up with more important issues though.

but..... to have road tax you need insurance and surely some form of registration. Would be pretty much catch 22

Yeah but we'd hoped you wouldn't mention it again. wavlist.com/sou…wav
will this get me from London to Brighton?

Yes. Once the battery runs out, place one foot on the ground and push yourself forward using that same foot, the scooter will move forward a yard or so. Once the forward motion has dissipated, place your foot on the ground once again and once again push yourself forward using that same foot, repeat...
