Thankyou so much for your help. I do suffer severe back pain and arthritis in my knee's shoulders and neck so your advice has been really helpfull.
Hi @cresta and @Roddy,
My scooter is a Kymco Mini Comfort LS which has all-round suspension and solid tyres. The ride is very good except on cobbles, but then if it wasn't for the suspension I would have been shaken to bits last week in Durham. Definitely go for one with suspension.
. So therefore I'm quite happy with the solids but try to avoid the cobbles!!
Mine is a class 2 which is limited to 4mph. I wish it had more power, not necessarily more speed. Is that possible?. I don't know.
By UK law class 3 scooters can only do 8mph maximum on roads and must be switchable to 4mph on footpaths.
