    Bought a scooter today!

    Most of you who have met me, know I am not, too sure footed, on uneven ground.

    Bad wreck, when I was 21, 1 year in a cast, and lift in my shoe, don't help,
    and old age (71) catching up with me.

    Shopping with the wife is not fun anymore....lol OK it was never FUN! LOL

    So I bought a Maverick Mobility Scooter today.
    Found one, on CraigsList and made a 15 hr. round trip To Ar. today.
    KC to near Little Rock, Ar. wow, I had to get 8 inches of snow, off my truck first.

    Here is a video of the one, like I bought, going to get a seat like his too......LOL

    That tiny camper in the video looked a bit wobbly to me ... I thought I saw the wheel come off the ground a couple of times while slowly being towed ...
    Can't help but wonder what it would be like being towed along side a road ...

    I've done so much with so little for so long ... Now I can do nearly anything with almost nothing.

    Make sure and tie that camper to something when you park it and put an axle and tires on each side so it'll roll after it blows over!

    That little camper would just be for show. I got a 14ft enclosed. Not thinking of pulling
    it anywhere. I just like weird stuff. Me I am building a submarine, trailer someday, again
    for show!! Laughs

    Steve Martin was asked how he spent his money?

    He said I bought a electric dog polisher, and a fur lined sink.

    Some of it I just wasted. lol

    Re: Bought a scooter today!

    Found another idea, barstool in Tulsa.



    But Swap Meet for bike Parts this weekend in Mid Mo.
    So might find a good deal there. I am going to see at least.
    If I spend another $100 for a seat, better do it before wife,
    returns from the beach....lol lol

    Re: Bought a scooter today!

    OK went to Sedalia Mo. to bike show swap meet. Looking for a seat at a good price for the
    scooter. But not anything that had a back rest... Not many choices.

    Nice small bike show. $5 so good price just to look.
    Free Parking.

    Catfish Place has 6 piece Senior Dinner, beans, coleslaw, rice, hush puppies, $6.99 I think.
    So twofer Bikes and Catfish..lol

    May just go with Street Glide seat my brother gave me. Just find a back rest to fit it later... Free is a great price...lol
