Scooter Curious….65 is the new 50!

older rider

I was recently in Hobe Sound, Florida for a few weeks visiting family.  Something caught my attention, a lack of scooters!  It’s Florida, and a resort/retirement community…what the heck?!

The problem it seemed was speed limit (most roads have a speed limit of 45 or you had to take a highway) and age.  Now I can’t argue what they vote in as speed limits, however I have my opinion.  SLOW DOWN!, enjoy the scenery, take your time and for goodness sake, if most of the drivers are over the age of 65, why on earth does it need to be so fast?

But let’s address the real issue: AGE.  In case you haven’t noticed, 65 is the new 50. We are living longer, we are more active and more aware of our environment than ever before.  So, why shouldn’t we be riding scooters when we retire? What a perfect means of transportation for someone wanting to slow down a bit, but still have a great time.

I had two customers here in beautiful Wheat Ridge Colorado this summer both over the age of 75!  Saving money on gas and not having to park so far away are also great reasons to ride a scooter when you are a bit older.  Don’t let age be a factor in fun…go out and enjoy life!

Todays Thoughts:  What are you waiting for?  Don’t wait until your body tells you it can’t do things anymore (and believe me, it will)..go and do things that make you smile and appreciate this beautiful place we call home…Denver Colorado!   Come on…”Age ain’t nothing but a number!”
