So I finally (after battling the lag) managed to pick up a free scooter from Edo Japan. It’s available for a limited time only so if you want one, you best hurry (and maybe go about 3am when it’s a bit less packed?)
I took it for a spin on the roads near my home (I’m lucky enough to live on old mainland right next to a road) and there I was struggling up the hill thinking that it was a bit underpowered. Only later I realised this thing actually has gears, and I’d been chugging along in first!
I’m really impressed with the way this vehicle rides. I’ve had some difficulty with sim crossings but never once was I unseated, and I’ve never yet had to go hunting for a bike that’s gone AWOL and parked itself in someone’s yard. Also, it responds really well to gravity, love the way it banks round corners and freewheels down hills.
