What’s Your Power Scooter Personality?

Posted on

After enduring a long winter of being shut in, nothing tops the feeling of sun warmed breezes wafting past while riding on an open vehicle. The open roads call out to you and mobility season rolls in with spring and summer. AgeComfort.com has an exciting array of power scooters , including some of the latest models, to get you safely out and about in comfort and style.

We could tell you about all the great features on these power scooters. But you can see that for yourself on the provided links. Just as a working contractor might drive a Ford F-150 and a soccer Mom might choose a Dodge Caravan, some personalities seem to suit certain vehicles. Are you a rebel at heart or a steadfast multi-tasker? Let’s take a fun look at what your scooter “personality” might be.

DRIVE MEDICAL MAVERICK EXECUTIVE 3 WHEEL SCOOTER

Remember the iconic Fonzie character from the ‘70s TV show Happy Days? This would be his ride. It’s the “Harley Davidson” edition of scooters for those with the confidence to be unconventional. It’s for the tough but tender type who revels in “look at me” attention. This distinctive sweet ride is for the leader of the pack.

DRIVE MEDICAL KING COBRA SCOOTER

This rugged but refined 4-wheel model is like the luxury “Range Rover” SUV that’s favoured by Queen Elizabeth of England. It eats up uneven terrain, even if your version of the Balmoral Castle estate is just the local park trail. A USB charging port and a cup holder are must-have accessories for the busy urbanite on the go. It’s a scooter for those with town and country tastes.

VENTURA 18" 4 WHEEL FOLDING SEAT MID SIZE SCOOTER

This dependable mid-size is like the Toyota Camry for the multi-tasking matriarch or patriarch of the household. It’s sturdy enough for outdoor terrain yet has non-marking tires for indoor trekking as well. The large carrying basket makes it easy to transport everything from groceries and mail, to gardening tools and more.

VENTURA 20" 3 WHEEL DELUXE MID SIZE SCOOTER

A sportier mid-size with some touches of luxury for the discerning rider who hankers after a sleeker ride. Like the “Nissan Maxima” edition of the Ventura scooter. It still has the reliability of a mid-size for the multi-tasker who has a long to-do list. But includes some envy-inspiring upgrades, including an extended roving range and a free-wheeling three-wheel design.

BIOS SPRINT 8 MOBILITY SCOOTER

This is the Toyota Prius or Chevrolet Volt of scooters. When you apply the brakes to a moving vehicle, the kinetic energy from the halted forward motion would normally be wasted as heat. The regenerative braking system on this scooter coverts it into electricity that recharges the battery. This stylish burgundy scooter is for the rider with European-inspired sensitivities – for fostering a greener environment, and exuding a “je ne sais quoi” charm while doing it.

PROWLER 22" 3 WHEEL FULL SIZE SCOOTER

The Prowler is no-nonsense and built tough to weather rough outdoor terrain, yet nimble enough for indoor use. It’s the Ram 1500 of scooters for hard-working heroes who put in long, sweat-drenched work days then come home to look after their families.

DRIVE MEDICAL BOBCAT X4 COMPACT 4 WHEEL SCOOTER

Our first experience of independence may have been living in a cluttered dorm room at university, going on a post-graduation back-packing tour of Europe, or getting our first job and first apartment in a decidedly un-chic part of town. Maybe you drove a compact car like a Honda Civic or Chevy Cavalier. Living la dolce vita wasn’t about having luxurious things, it was the freedom to explore and do what you wanted that mattered. This scooter evokes that same feeling of first independence. It’s for the explorer in all of us!

SOLAX GENIE AUTOMATIC FOLDING SCOOTER

The portability of this scooter brings you back to your freewheeling days when you could hop in a car, bus or train, and travel to wherever whimsy took you. The Solax Genie is made for travelling. It folds up at the touch of a remote and fits into cars, planes, trains and even buses. It’s for the still whimsical and self-sufficient do-it-yourselfer who likes to get around on their own. Don’t let it’s compactness fool you, it’s infinitely useful, like the timeless Swiss Army Knife.

The Herstory of Mother’s Day

https://www.flickr.com/photos/wackystuff/The paradox of Mother’s Day is that its founder, American Anna Jarvis, spent the latter years of her life denouncing the commercialization of it and lobbying to have it removed as a national observance. Yet , its modern day origins is quite noble and perhaps for that reason, we still celebrate Mother’s Day with time-honoured brunches, flowers, chores done [...]
