Paris by TravelScoot
Perchance my wife Yoly and I are in Paris this week. We used the G7 taxi service which has a ramp but you really don't need to as you can find vans with storage for your scooter in the back. We went from our hotel to our favorite Paris neighborhood Rue du Cler today, Yoly walking and me scooting. It is 2 or 3 miles and all went well. Yesterday I did overheat my motor going up the Champs Elyses towards the Arch de Triumphe but as instructed just waited a while and scooted it forward to reset it. Paris is a very good city for handicaps as buses, taxis and all street corners are friendly. You can't ride the Red Bus tourist thing with a normal scooter but can with TravelScoot.
I came with 2 batteries and consumed only 1 with my trip today. I am going to be at SIAL, the world's largest food show and my guess this will use my 2 batteries. We'll see. I love the lithium batteries and didn't have trouble at the airline with them.
Interestingly, I have seen only 1 scooter on the street and not a TravelScoot. It is sort of cold.
