    Hi @MichaelS - welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. I don't use a scooter, but we have other members that do, so hopefully they may be able to answer your queries. :)

    Welcome to the community @MichaelS :) It's great to have you with us, so thanks for joining!

    As chiarieds has said, we have plenty of other mobility scooter users here on the community, so I'm sure there'll be someone who's been through something similar to you. 

    Do you have any specific questions you'd like to ask at the moment?
