Disposable Scooter

17 years ago

I posted some questions around trying to find the right scooter. I haven't ridden in 30 years and am a little afraid of a big scooter. My wife said she isn't much interested in 2 up and pointed out my truck is falling apart.

I finally thought a KYMCO Peoples S200 might make a nice enough ride at a nice enough price. Now I have a new thought. I've seen a GS motorworks Big Chief Riptide, 150 cc for under a grand. For that money it is like a BIC--use it and get rid of it. Yeah, it is Chinese, "some assembly required" but I figure it will get me on a scooter and help me decide if it is right for me, get me around town, and leave me money for my truck.

Anyone know about this scoot, what do you think about my disposable scooter approach? I know the Chinese scoots are questionable and I know how the 100 mph SilverWing drivers feel about slow. I think it is this approach or walk. Any dealings with gs motorworks or their scoots?
