Ok, so itâ€™s really a Honda Lead 100 scooter, but if I put that in the heading no-one would look and help me outâ€¦ :grin: A couple of months ago I lowsided my scooter on a tight roundabout, doing a right hand turn. Too much speed, too much lean(?), I heard a scraping and next I know Iâ€™m sliding along the road. Ouch! Now, Iâ€™m a little different to many scooter riders â€“ I like to go riding in the hills. In fact, my path to buying a scooter was something like this: I want to get on two wheels, a scooter is cheap transport, a 50cc is just scary in traffic (and if you derestrict it youâ€™re in trouble without a licence and your insurance is stuffed). So, get a bigger scooter to keep up with the traffic, and gee, darn, I need to get my bike licence! Goal number one achieved! I canâ€™t justify a proper bike as I live 10 minutes from work, and I have my kids to play with on the weekend, so thereâ€™s no time to really enjoy a bike. Now, all I have to do is shift the family further from work and I can justify a bike (goal number two). I like to take a break a lunch and head into the hills (five minutes from my office). For a 60 to 90 minute ride I can have a great run through the hills, in areas that are suited to the Leadâ€™s humble speed. But since the slide, Iâ€™m a tad nervous in cornering. I have started to lean my body much more into the corners to keep the scooter more upright, but feel like a bit of an idiot (more than usual? I do ride a scooterâ€¦). So, to the questions: 1) How much can I expect from the tyres that come standard on a Honda Leadâ€™s big 10 inch wheels? I want to feel happy taking corners at a sensible speed of around 15k over the recommended speed sign. Am I expecting too much? 2) Am I being over-cautious by leaning my body into corners at these speed and therefore looking like a super try-hard on a scooter? Advice from proper motorcyclists who have also ridden Lead scooters would be especially helpful (and from reading various threads over time, I know there are a few!). Thanks.
