Gas Information – USE PREMIUM UNLEADED
- 70 miles approximately per tank
- All equipment must be refilled before returning
- Use premium unleaded ONLY
- Remember the Scoot Coupe has no reverse
- Scoot Coupe will not start unless rear brake is held in – turn key to “on” position, hold in rear brake and push red start button on right handle grip.
- Coupe has a huge turning radius, so NO U-TURNS as you could put yourself in a dangerous situation
- Do not exceed 25 mph as Scoot Coupe may become unstable
- Never jam on either brake, as this may cause a skid
- Never drive with parking brake on, as this will burn up the clutch, belt and rollers and result in a $450 charge to renter
- Always use parking chock for added safety whenever Scoot Coupe is parked
- no clutch lever, no shifting gears
- left hand lever (rear brake)
- right hand lever (front brake)
- at low speeds and tight maneuvering, keep hand on left (rear) brake
- use both brakes evenly when stopping abruptly
- use extreme caution when braking on gravel and wet roads
- never jam on either brake (you may cause a skid)
- when riding in wet or rainy conditions, or on loose surfaces, exercise extreme caution when braking
- when descending a steep grade, close the throttle slowly and use both brakes to slow the moped down
- both front and rear brakes should be applied together
- independent use of only the front or rear brake reduces stopping performance
- excessive brake application may cause either wheel to lock, reducing control of the moped
LEGALITIES AND ISLAND RULES
- Carry driver’s license
- Wear eye protection and helmet
- Riding double is dangerous, against the law and ruins the moped
- Ride single file, and not too close (allow cars to pass)
- DO NOT IMPEDE TRAFFIC - if traffic behind is unable to pass, pull over and stop
- If you want to stop in mid-travel, GET OFF THE ROAD! Pull off in a safe place.
- Pass carefully (you and the one you pass can scare easily)
- Stay off all private, chained, posted roads (you will be ticketed)
- Watch out for cars pulling out quickly from hidden driveways
- never ride a moped unless you are wearing a helmet and protective eyewear
- baskets or luggage racks are for lightweight items only – make sure cargo is secure
- place both hands on the handle bars and both feet on the foot pegs while riding
- obey all federal and local laws and regulations while riding
- do not open and close throttle rapidly – this could cause possible loss of control of the moped (to accelerate, open throttle gradually, for deceleration close the throttle)
- when slowing down the moped, coordination of the throttle and the front and rear brake is most important
- Use mirrors at all times
- Never take your hands off the handle grips; the moped will become very unstable
- Use your turn indicators (they won’t click off automatically)
ROAD CONDITIONS – VERY IMPORTANT!
- 10 mph to 15 mph are the perfect sightseeing speeds.
- pot holes are everywhere and you hit hard
- eyes on the road!
- loose gravel and gravel roads are like ice (loose gravel builds up at all forks, intersections and driveways)
- very narrow shoulders on most roads, be aware of traffic behind you – use your mirrors. DON’T TURN YOUR HEAD!!
- your chances of a mishap are greatly decreased at a lower speed
- if you don’t feel comfortable, don’t go!
