fuck, I actually love this electric scooter
I mean there's things I'd improve about it, but... I thought I'd only be using it as a dinghy for my car, and for getting around areas that I traveled to
...but the weather's gotten good enough to start commuting on it, and it works scarily well for that. Averaging around 20 km/h on my commute (top speed is 25), versus ~17 km/h when I commuted on my recumbent trike, and I don't arrive worn out and sweaty.
And yes, I know, an upright bicycle would be better than the trike at the specific things that I complain the most about, while also being able to negotiate terrain that the scooter can't safely. (I do also have a folding upright bike...)
But, one interesting thing with the scooter is just how fluid it is to switch between riding at 25 km/h, and walking when needed. Even on a step-through bike, dismounting and remounting is much more of a conscious action, whereas on the scooter you just do it.
