I've been trying to find a source of travel that might get me around, as I cant handle the vibrations of regular petrol scooters on my joints ( bad joint problems ) I was considering buying a electric bike or scooter to get around .
So I've been looking around ( Im actually up in the highlands of scotland )and noticed there seems to be a lot unreliable or dodgy sellers out there which brings me to my question , of which make / model of scooter would be considered best value for money here in the uk ?
I cant afford spending beyond 2000 right now and was really hoping to find a bike that was reliable under that price.
From looking around I notice Sakura ( http://www.sbsb.co.uk/ ) do a moped which I thought from the little reviews Ive been able to find sounds pretty good.
Then I found out about this other here Ecomoped which sounds more like a Chinese import
Ideally I was hoping I could get something bit faster than 30 mph range that could cover more than the usual 30 miles , but I dont see an electrics that fall into that range without really going up in price.
I thought at one point it mght be possible to get an electric bike that had an off road switch to enable it to go faster than 15 mph but that doesnt seem to be something available here in the uk either.
Well that just about sums it up .
It might just as well be waiting but I was really looking to try to get out again after being housebound almost year with physical problems.
