Pride Go Go Ultra X scooter
on March 1, 2013
This is a wonderful little scooter, although I bought it from a store-front retailer in another state and it's red, not blue .. it was on sale.. it is mostly suitable for ambulatory people who can't walk distances for whatever reason. For this reason (and this alone) had I to do it over I might have chosen the 4-wheel model for stability purposes only. The turning radius is phenomenal, but you really have to take it SLOW or the chances for tipping increases exponentially. Additionally, it is by NO means an all-terrain vehicle.. and with 3 wheels you must really be cognizant of surfaces when traveling .. it has a 2" above ground level carriage, so speed bumps and cracked pavement must be negotiated with care and SLOWLY. Having said all this, I find this little guy a wonderful help, and has restored pleasantly much of my life again.. totally worth the price.
On the ETC list: Do yourself a favor and purchase the back of the seat basket.. before I bought this scooter when I went to the store to buy (together) a big bottle of Clorox, a large bottle of wine, and a large liquid detergent bottle, by the time I got to the sidewalk outside the grocery store with that sack I was so breathless just wanted to call a taxi.. the basket looks relatively small, but one very large sack can be "crammed" into it.. additionally, my suitcase will fit in it with my carry on wedged behind my knees on the carriage floor.. plenty of room.. the airlines took the suitcase for checking at the airport, and I rode the scooter to the gate where they took it away from me; I just grabbed my carry on first to take to my seat. Upon arrival, the scooter was waiting in gate area for me.. wow! It was terrific. The battery is always a concern at the airport (they run the scooter separately if you can stand to pass through the X-RAY machine) but it has always passed muster.
