The scooter I bought last year was just a little big for me so my husband surprised me (for my birthday) and traded it in on a much smaller scooter. I took it for a spin around town today, it's very easy to drive. All that practice in the parking lot last year really paid off. The top speed is around 40. Just right for putting around town. Of course, my husband got on his scooter and rode behind me to make sure I was safe.
