Welcome to the New York Scooter Forum.


This Forum was established in order to provide a friendly and welcoming environment for local scooterists to connect with one another, plan rides and share scooter-related knowledge and experience. Please review the following guidelines carefully prior to posting, and please try to conduct yourself accordingly.


If you are new to the Forum, congratulations on finding us! You are welcome here. Riding a scooter is fun; having a community of people to ride with and to share the experience with can be even better. Register and introduce yourself if you'd like us to say hello. Lurking is okay too, you'll need to register before you can post. You may want to start out by reviewing the Frequently Asked Questions, which may answer some of your basic questions. Try to do a search (link at the top of every page) before asking a general question -- chances are, the question has been asked and answered several times already. If you can't find an answer via search, though, don't sweat it -- ask and we'll try to point you in the right direction. And don't just visit the Forum; join us in person at one of the many rides and events that are posted here as soon as you are able.

Old timers, please have patience with new users with regard to searching the Forum before posting -- people new to the subject (any subject) often don't know the correct terminology and can become easily overwhelmed by too many search results returned for generic terms. Impatience with new users honestly does a disservice to everyone. If you can help a new user, please do so. If you know a past topic that would help them and don't mind pointing it out, please do so. Otherwise, just move on -- don't take it upon yourself to be the "search cop" or to share unwelcome opinions about a new user's question.

Generally, try to use the Forum as it was intended - to plan rides, to share relevant news and information and to ask and answer questions about scooters. Do not use it to create drama or to entertain yourself when you're bored (at others' expense). Be civil to one another. Treat everyone with respect. Keep it friendly and remember that not everyone shares your particular viewpoint, nor should anyone be treated with disrespect for not believing exactly as you do. We welcome debate on the Forum. But using the Forum to criticize people you don't like or to attack those who don't agree with you is selfish and ruins the Forum experience for other users. Please take it offline or learn to turn the other cheek.


This is a scooter forum, so try to keep it mostly about scooters and everybody will be happy. Posts of a political or religious nature are discouraged as they tend to turn into flame wars; nobody is ever persuaded to change sides in a political or religious discussion. Examples of other topics its probably best to avoid are gun control, abortion, and the death penalty, just to name just a few. If you feel you must post an off-color joke, link, picture, or video, please clearly mark your post NSFW (Not Safe For Work) in the title. Please keep off-color posts to a minimum so as not to distract from the real purpose of the Forum.


Racist or hate speech is strictly prohibited. Do not post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. SPAM will be deleted and the poster thereof blocked from posting.


Focus on having fun, meeting new people and learning a thing or two and you'll get the most out of this Forum. If you're frustrated with the Forum, get out there and RIDE!!! And never forget that scootering is supposed to be enjoyable -- that's why we're here. If you have any questions or concerns about anything at all, send the Admin a private message and tell him what's on your mind.
