    Razor E300 Scooter Advice?

    So, i need some advice. I am looking to get the Razor E300 scooter for myself but I am wondering if or has anyone tried taking their kids to school on it while your riding it too? If that makes sense? I believe it can handle a weight of 100kg but I am wondering if it having two people on it is 'do-able'?

    Been walking all my life, don't own a car/bike. Sometimes you just want to try different things in life other than commuting on a bus/train etc.

    It doesn't sound like a good idea. My son has one (not used much now). He is 12. He has been on it with his sister who is ten. They are both over 5 feet tall. Its a bit of a squeeze. It's ok for fun, for five, ten minutes but not for a proper journey as such. Especially if you have school bags etc. They aren't any use in wet weather as puddles can damage the scooter. They are much better on smooth paths, rather than rough terrain.

    could you not get a push bike, with a child carrier on the back, depending on how old the child is, or both get push bikes?

    Thank you, appreciate the advice. Sounds like their are more disadvantages to this than i thought.

    funny enough, my son is 5 he can ride a bike but i cant lol.

    I thought it would be fun for us to ride together..

    My kids ride a bike better then me too! Perhaps get one for fun, but not necessarily rely on it for school. Its easy for me to put you off because we have had a chance to try one. If you can afford it, get one. Life is too short, it's worth experiencing it, then you can make your own mind up.
