I want to keep riding until the snow falls (which will probably be around November 1). I purchased an insulated vest and a balaclava to wear under the bicycle helmet. My goggles fit over the balaclava. Its cozy with temperatures below freezing. Does anybody ride electrc scooters in the snow?

Re: Keeping Warm

I rode mine in the snow last winter. (we don't normally get much snow here in the UK, but last winter had a proper cold snap with a couple of inches on the ground for several days.) I did have to put my feet down a couple of times to avoid falling off on slippery off-camber bits, but other than that it was fine. Winter mopeding is cold though - I plan to buy handgrip shields and a rug thing to keep a bit warmer this winter.
