How long is it going to be before all these little scooter riders have to do a riding test. I think for their own safety and basic knowledge of a two wheel vehicle it is needed, as my wife purchased one and was given no advise no nothing but the dealer took the money easy enough and said thanks for coming and when you want to upgrade come back eh. Luckily I own and ride a Honda CBR 1000 so I could give her advise and guidance in the riding of her scooter which I think she needed as she admitted to me she didn't even know which one was the back brake and the front brake so she used both ( scary thought ). I have just completed a 5,000 Kls ride and have seen many scooters in the towns and city's we passed through and think to myself how many actual know the basics ? you have to do a practical test in a car and for a bike license so why not for a scooter?? And my wife needed something just to run around the town and her normal means of transport is our WH Statesman so it was a BIG learning curve for her. Anyway what are other peoples opion on this.
