I never had the chance to try out a scooter until my mom rented the Golden Scooter while we were in Maui. It made my life so much easier! It was so easy to get around in the scooter and I was able to be more independent and not rely on my mom or someone to push me around in the manual wheelchair. The battery was excellent on the scooter. I was even able to ride the scooter to and from a beach near our condo, which was about a mile away!
