    Default Kick scooter for adults

    With my current transport woes, and buses and trains not going everywhere or quite far enough, I thought maybe a kick scooter, one designed for adults.
    There seems to be a gap in public transport where you still have to walk a distance to get to where you are going.
    I thought maybe a kick scooter might fill in that gap.

    Have already accepted that I will look stupid but its better than being late fof work, or getting rained on for the ten minute walk home from the bus
    and im just tired of walking, takes forever

    Thoughts, ideas, experience? Laughter is welcome...

    Plenty of adults in Sydney getting around on kick scooters, it's a reasonable solution to your problem.

    Does anyone here have and use one?
    im not a skateboard/bike/skates kind of person but this looks
    relatively idiot proof.
    Easier and faster than walking...

    Anyone have any recommendations for which scooter to get. Not driving makes it cumbersome to get around and have a look.

    When I was in San Francisco recently there were a lot of e-scooters getting around, also Monoboards, but they look like a recipe for disaster if you ask me.

    I'd try YouTube for reviews and Google for Australian prices.

    I'd love a personal e-scooter for myself. It would be perfect to get to and from work. Unfortunately, it would get vandalised sitting outside my workplace and I can't bring it inside because of the shopping centres rules.

    Go to your local bike shop. Bike Hub at Wollongong and Albion Park Rail have heaps. Get one that can fold up for commuting.

    I ride my son’s all the time. They’re great fun. I just prefer my skateboard.
