Long shot here.


Wife and I are going to Paris in October and she is dead set on renting a scooter to run around town for a day.

I am hoping someone has a scooter they would rent/loan me for a day or two to teach her how to ride. I am looking for a 50cc scooter for her to ride around a bit, open parking lot or some other open space.

I know this is a random request, but I thought I would ask my riding community.

Or my tlr 200 you are welcome. Ergonomics are drastically different but principles similar. You'd be doing me a favor running a tank of gas through it.

Or you can ride in the bike lane doing 15mph like many scooter riders do.

The traffic and road surfaces in Paris are pure insanity. It makes riding the A group at a trackday look like a walk in the park.

Good luck and please be safe...

Thanks!

That is why I want her to practice. Just so she doesn't have to include that in her learning curve.

That seems pretty solid!
