June Low Mileage Leader | SF Moto Blog | Scooters and Vespas | Scoop.it

SF Moto's June's Low Mileage Leader is a beautiful black 2013 Piaggio BV350 scooter with just 587 miles on it!

SF Moto's insight:

For the sixth month in a row, our Low Mileage Leader has come in with less than 1,000 miles on it! Buying a previously owned motorcycle or scooter doesn't mean you're buying a high-mileage bike, at least when you buy at SF Moto.

Motorcycle Hand Signals Graphic Eases Bike-to-Bike Communication | Scooters and Vespas | Scoop.it
Every time a group of motorcyclists takes to the road together, they inevitably have a moment where they need to communicate with each other. If everyone is equipped with Bluetooth headset, then all they have to do is talk, but let’s be realistic.
SF Moto's insight:

Here's a nice overview of motorcycle hand signals. This is especially helpful for a group ride if there is no other way to communicate with your fellow bikers.

Scooters Are Cool, I Don’t Care What You Say

Scooters Are Cool, I Don’t Care What You Say | Scooters and Vespas | Scoop.it
I’ll always have a place in my garage for traditional motorcycles - it will just be beside my scooter.
SF Moto's insight:

This article does an excellent job explaining why the utilitarian nature of scooters makes them perfect for city riding and commuting, rather than other forms of transportation (including motorcycles). Scooters allow for more relaxed, comfortable posture while riding, along with maneuverability in congested traffic, and extra storage space under the seat. Scoot on!

Lit Motors, the company behind the fully-enclosed C1 electric two-wheeler, has opened a KickStarter campaign to raise funds for its new box-like electric s [...]
SF Moto's insight:

While it may be a stretch to call the Kubo Scooter a pick-up truck on two wheels, it does provide more cargo space that a typical scooter. Lit Motors is trying to raise $300,000 in funding on Kickstarter. With 23 days remaining, they still need to raise $266,893. If they meet their funding goal, production is slated to start in April 2014, with full-scale production by July.
