My scooters

I can’t drive (well, legally that is), but thanks to the benefits that I’ve got, because I was working for the government, what I’m able to get is pretty awesome. I’ve got 2 scooters, because of what I need them for. The first, and most significant, factor that needs to be addressed is the weather. We live in Canada, so snow’s an issue. However, while OC Transpo buses are accessible, getting on the bus means that I’m required to take a tight-90 degree turn, which dramatically limits what I can use.

This is my "not deep snow" scooter. It's a lot like what it looks - not intended for use in snow. I've have to use it in snow, because my big one arrived with an error! However, it's not meant to be used in the snow! If the snow was deeper than about 1" it could have gotten stuck! The first time I learned that, I didn't see it before I'd advanced, and got stuck! Thankfully, even though I was stuck, within a few minutes someone saw me, and immediately came to help. After that, If I see that on the road ahead of me is snow, I avoid it.
Here's what the manufacturer says about it:

  • CTS Suspension (Comfort-Trac front and rear suspension) provides a smooth, comfortable ride over varied terrain

  • Feather-touch disassembly easily disassembles into 5 lightweight pieces for transport and storage

  • 300 lb. weight capacity

  • Delta Tiller with ergonomic wraparound handles lets you operate the scooter with one hand and rest your wrist

  • A standard front basket provides storage

  • Charger port located on the tiller lets you conveniently charge your scooter

  • The dual voltage charger permits charging the battery pack on-board or off-board for added convenience

  • Pride’s exclusive black, non-scuffing tires

  • Standard LED lighting

  • Includes two sets of easily changeable, red and blue colored shrouds

This is my 4-season scooter, that I can take anytime, to anywhere.
Granted that as it doesn't have a roof, it shouldn't be taken in the rain, but I was told that if the steering wheel electronics are covered, it's able to go anywhere, anytime.
Rugged and built to last, the Wrangler is everything I want in an outdoor scooter! Equipped with front and rear suspension (suspension - really? Yup, and it's awesome) this aggressive scooter is designed for cruising on walking trails or driving around. Enjoy total visibility with complete LED lighting. With a user-friendly console and dual hydraulic brakes for added safety, the Wrangler is the perfect way to embrace life in the great outdoors!

And, get this - it's top speed is ~20 km/h

  • CTS Suspension includes adjustable shocks for greater comfort

  • User friendly LED console displays time, temperature, miles driven, and trips taken

  • Adjustable delta tiller with ergonomic, wraparound handles

  • USB charger built into the tiller for convenient charging of smart phones and portable devices

  • Durable and stylish rear bumper

  • Easily accessible tie-down points (for transport of unoccupied scooter)

  • Full LED lighting package includes headlights, hazard lights, rear backup sensor LED lights and directional signals

Here's some visual evidence as to the difference. They say size isn't everything, but with respect to scooters in the snow, it matters. Check out the size differential between the two wheels.
Yes, being disabled sucks (when comparing to how I was), but with both the realization that I'd had (that while the past was cool, it's gone) and looking forward with what I'm building, it's awesome. And, thanks to the fact that I worked for the government, and was awarded a generous settlement, though I lost a cool job, I'm not paid less. So, the financial stress isn't here. As I'd said above, while it's not-good that they don't have a roof, with an umbrella, and the electronics are covered, I can go out in the rain. Not hard, but drizzles, but it's ok.
