Women Love the Scooter
I've been driving my electric scooter around town now for awhile. It's a little Schwinn Stealth 1000. It's a little beefed up running 48v Lipo and a 40-100amp controller. I get a lot of waves and honks. I got a little bike horn that sounds really dorky, but people seem to like it. Today, I was riding home and I heard a car coming up from behind me honking. As the car passes, I notice it's full of girls. The do the "wooo" thing, and believe it or not, I got flashed. This isn't the first time I've got the "wooo" from the women, but it is the first flash. That's what I call EV love.
You're my idol!
*another high five*
LOL. I also have a small stand-on scooter, that I ride around town with my girlfriend.
We get alot of smiles and stares while riding it. Some people shout at us asking if there is room for one more person, or if we can give them a ride :-).
I recently "Pimped" my ride, adding blue neon lights on the bottom. So now when we ride it at night we get even more comments from passers by.
If you add 2 of theses blue/red LED strips in series to the motorcycle headlight you can run them all off the scooter's 36v battery instead of adding an additional accessories battery.
I'm thinking accents with some electroluminescent paper would be sweet. I've got a blue strip of the stuff I'm considering putting on the battery box to improve my chances of being seen at night. It's not bright, but it's very eye-catching.
Wow, I hope guys don't try to get in on the "flash" trend when I start riding my first e-bike. =)
