OK so I'm finally after about 10 days of owning it going to get the scooter out of the boot give it a bloody good clean and am going to test drive my new 2nd hand wheels.
I'm going to be soooooo self conscious buy hopefully I won't see anyone ha ha.
Hubby test drove it for me -just like he test drives all my wheels.
I should have maybe purchased a helmet and knee and elbow pads like you do for roller skates ha ha.
Hopefully I won't fall off it - wish me luck :D

    My daughter and I still remember the first time I hired one for a trip to a shoppingmall...the highlight was my effort at shoplifting from M and S when a bra got caught round the back wheels.

    Hi Wobbly
    My husband test drives all my wheels as well :lol:
    but he wasn't in the shopping centre when I hired one of theirs for the first time :o
    These ones aren't the big ones like supermarkets have. They are a normal size....probably like yours and like the one I have now.
    The lady that hired it wanted me to do a test drive when she found out I hadn't driven one before.
    I drove a short distance across the car park and she said turn round. I looked at her and she was laughing....You don't need to do a 3 point turn, it turns on a 6p
    As I got closer to her she was still laughing. I asked her why?
    She said....."KEEP YOUR FEET STILL" :lol::lol:
    I was still driving my car......trying to do 3 point turns and feet going trying to use the clutch and brakes :lol:
    It worked out OK....just go for it you'll be fine.
