Their is actually a "Bag" made for bikes as well as scooters. If you like the scooter and you dont want to spend hours cleaning the sand and road film off the scoot......... check into a scooter bag. Well worth it to protect your scoot.

+1 on everything Forrest Grump said.

+1 on the recommendations to take a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic Rider Course.

+1 on the recommendations to wear appropriate safety gear/clothing.

Then take the MSF Advanced Rider Course.

Then enjoy. A scooter is a great way to do some low speed exploration around campgrounds.

I would like to thank everyone for the advise.... I inquired about the PA Motercycle course but unfortunately they are on break for the winter and will not host any classes until sometime in April. Being that we are going on vacation in March my husband will just practice and take the test and then both of us will take the course at a later date. Since both of us have never street ridden in the past it will be in out best interest to be guided by the experts.

The tip about the cover was much appreciated. We certainly do not want to ruin the paint.

Thank again for all of your replys.

I second this very strongly. I've been riding for 40 years and I took one in 2003 to get my Nevada motorcycle endorsement. It was easier than doing it through the DMV and I learned some things I didn't know.

I would also recommend getting familiar with Smith System drivers training. You don't need to take a course, just be familiar with the 5 keys to that system and how they relate to every day driving.

1. Aim high in steering.
2. Get the big picture.
3. Keep your eyes moving.
4. Leave yourself an out.
5. Make sure they see you.

Why did I bold underline the first letters? All Good Kids Like Milk. Makes it easy to remember.

Please don't think either because you won't be riding on the highway your likelihood of an accident is lessened. Odds are more against you on secondary roads than on the highway.

Have fun with the scooters and please don't get hurt.
