The Hy-Peds Are coming
smaller bikes $8-900.00
In the last thirty days in America, 35,000 people threw up their hands, put a smile on their face and bought a "Scooter", joining the millions in Germany, France. Italy and England who "Scoot".
And they are not crazy, mopeds have a almost unbelievably low accident rate compared to motor cycles, we interviewed many folks for this article who have never had a single accident in thirty years. But what you can not find out about mopeds is that riding one is one of the most cathartic and stress releasing experiences you will ever have. One 63 year old woman we interviewed said, "I never lived till I went down the road feeling free from every problem of the world 30 miles per hour on a scooter!"
There are two kinds of mopeds. The china bikes that sell for $700.00 to $2000.00, and the Japanese/Taiwan bikes that cost $2900.00 to $7900.00, the latter of course being made a little better, but not much.
These re-designed HY-PEDS have 16 inch wheels, very good shock absorbers bigger gas tanks and what is not seen here -Large Trunks and as you can see above very very comfortable seats for TWO.
Another reason folks are buying these is very unusual-THEIR HEALTH. Reports have come in from all over the world that folks go thru very beneficial changes after buying a moped, don't laugh, it makes total sense, the most reported is weight loss and a close second-freedom from back pain. the reason for this is that mopeds "Vibrate" thus toning up muscles, circulation and heart, as such many report improved health and great freedom from depression. But what can never be emphasized enough is the wild sense of joy and freedom all folks seem to get going down a country road 25 MPH and still hearing the birds sing with the wind through their hair. One rider told us "we call Cars "Cages" because once on a moped you feel you have been released from a cage."
The best deals in mopeds today are the Chinese "Branded Bikes" branded means china bikes that have a brand name, as some only have a number. some of the best quality being--ZNEN, E-CHARM, CF MOTO, BMS, BASHAN and ROKETA
These bikes cost about 1500.00 on an average and come with a funny warrenity that includes parts but no labor most times. The best way to buy one of these bikes is thru a dealer, but often in many areas there is no dealer near by or the local dealer only sells cheaply made bikes and so people order them on the internet.the internet method is very tricky, you must deeply check in to a sellers complaint background of a Dealer/Seller or you may do your self a real dis-service.
Here at Palms we recommend you shop for local dealers, if that does not work then shop the net for a name brand bike and have it serviced locally. The net is full of the old style bikes that are small and hard to see in traffic,The newer style "Hy-Ped" bikes shown here are a little harder to find but can easily be gotten, just look for 16 inch tires.
These bikes insure at about 260.00 per year.

Repair and Sales
"R and R RIDES and REPAIRS"
We are, after a deep investigation of local scooter sellers, only recommending one place in greenville to buy or repair a scooter.
R and R RIDES and REPAIRS.
THESE GUYS ARE THE BEST IN THE UPSTATE
We interviewed many and at the end of the day these folks are the best, in price, product and quaility repairs.
How many scooter shops can you go to and see great Scooter's.. get great repair work.
They have a diognostic repair Wizard named "JIM" who over sees everything and is darn tall enough to do it too!
And a great warm hearted mechanic named "BOB"
And maning the front desk, "Allen" can sell you a great scooter bike or ATV.
The repair shop was slick clean, very very organized, you could sense brains at work there and we never sensed pressure to buy anything, but the warm hand of community was always exrtended.
These guys are a real charm, even if you have nothing to do go by and see them
Cause sometimes magic happens when all the right folks get together and these guys are just that.
VISTIT THEM AT-
HAPPY RIDEING FOLKS
