Riding on a Scooter
It is always worth bearing this in mind: A scooter is at its most stable when travelling at a constant speed in a straight line. The rear brake is operated by the left lever, and the front brake is operated by the right lever.
The optimum ratio of braking in the dry is: 70% front, 30% rear.
The reason for this is that, as you apply brakes, most of the weight of the scooter and rider will be transferred onto the front wheel. Conversely, weight will be taken off the rear wheel as you brake. This will make the rear wheel more prone to locking up and the rear of the machine will want to “overtake” the front.
When the roads are wet, the ratio of braking on your rental scooter should shift to 50/50.
Scooter Bob’s scooter rentals ask to see a motorcycle license or at least have some motorcycle experience. Scooter renters must be a minimum of 25 years.
