Hi I have a trike at moment and I`m planning on getting a 250cc auto scooter as I want to try riding on two wheels again.Do any of you folks have any tips to make riding easier, safer.And is it better to attach knackered hand to bars or have it strapped to body.I will be fitting a steering damper

Cheers Willie

Either is fine with the arm. As for riding, take the scoot to somewhere where you can practice and get used to balance, throttle control etc and you will be fine with a little bit of practice and confidence

some people find attaching your hand to the bars gives a better feeling of security

A mate of mine rides one handed & cant get on with the duff one either strapped to his body or to the bars,it may be due to the nature of his injury, but he has a velcro pad glued to the tank of the bike & the other half of the velcro on his glove & rides fine that way

Just mentioning it as another option & i suppose the bonus is if he does ever bin it he will be able to get away from the bike easy :)
