Getting yourself on a scooter is a great way to get around town, save money, and be green. However, for people unaccustomed to two-wheeled transport hopping on a scooter can be scary. So, download these apps to help make your transition to the scooter that much smoother.
If you considering getting a moped, it's not a bad idea to try it out before you spend a grand or two on a Vespa. Depending on where you live there are probably scooter rental places somewhere nearby. These rental places will let you rent a scooter to drive around for the day, with all of the legal stuff taken care of, it's the perfect first time. Some scooter rental places have apps designed to make the rental process easier. If you can, download these before heading off to the store because it will make your rental process go by much faster. Even the most basic app will let you fill out legal documents beforehand and reserve your scooter. With a rental app, you can now show up and get out on the road within minutes. Starting out with a rental scooter is a great way to feel safe your first time on a moped.
So, now that you are certain you want to buy a scooter, you need to figure out which one is going to work best for you. First, you'll have to figure out if you want a purely electric or gas-powered engine as there are benefits and disadvantages to each. Luckily, there are plenty of different moped brands out there from Vespa to Genuine, so you are going to have a lot of options to choose from. Additionally, a lot of manufacturers have created their own apps that have all of the scooters they produce in a catalog with easy comparison options against different models. There are also plenty of repair and maintenance apps that will teach you practical skills about maintaining your new moped and help you gauge how much maintenance different models require so you can feel secure about your new purchase.
Finally, you have your new scooter and now it’s time to hit the road. Since this is your first start, it's likely you're going to be challenging yourself just trying to turn corners, not to mention worrying about navigation. To add to the navigational difficulties that come with driving a moped, the laws vary state by state but most mopeds can't go on highways or interstates, so you might need a new route to get to work. So, to help your transition from a car to moped go even smoother, look for a navigation app made specifically for motorcycles and mopeds. Traditional navigation apps like Waze have a mode for mopeds that can help make sure you fall state laws, and stay safe while on the road. If you don't like the Waze interface there are still plenty of other navigations apps to choose from.
