Testing Methodology:
The scooters were ranked by Ingress Protection: “IP Rating” against water. Braking performance on wet pavement, fender protection, wet vs dry tire traction and deck traction in the wet. The scooters were also subjectively scored for wet weather ride quality.

The IP rating of a scooter is a score for resistance to being exposed to solids and liquids. A typical IP rating for a scooter would be something like IP54. Here, “5” is the dust protection rating, and 4 is the water protection rating. The main thing to know is that the last digit is the one you care about for rain. Higher is better, and the bare minimum for riding in the rain is going to be IPX4.

Braking performance on wet pavement was exactly that. We measured braking performance in the wet and compared stopping distances. This is the only score in the evaluation where a smaller number is better. The winning combination here is a short stopping distance that doesn’t supernatural braking skills to pull off.

Fender protection was measured by laying a straight surface from the edge of the tire to the rearward edge of the rear fender. This shows what direction water will spray when leaving the tire and fender. Zero degrees would be no fender at all, with water shooting straight at the rider’s ankles and above, where 60 degrees would hit the rider’s waist and above, 90 degrees would shoot water straight up, and 180 degrees would shoot water straight back at pavement level. Score is 0 deg to 180 degrees, with higher being better. The most critical number is that the angle be above 90 degrees, so water is going away from the rider rather than towards the rider.

Wet vs dry traction was measured with a drag test. Literally pulling a weighted scooter sideways and measuring the amount of force required to break traction. In this case the wet traction score of each scooter was only compared to the dry traction of that same scooter, giving an indication of how much you would need to adjust your riding on that scooter in the wet vs how you would ride it in the dry. A score of 90% would indicate that you have 90% as much traction in the wet as in the dry. Of course, higher is better with 100% being the highest score and indicating the same traction in the wet as on dry pavement.

Deck traction was measured in a similar manner, pulling a weighted shoe across the deck. Here we were able to compare absolute traction from scooter to scooter, since the weight and contact patch of the dragging device was the same for each test. A higher number here indicates more foot traction.

The subjective score for wet weather ride quality doesn’t appear as a score in the video, but was weighted equally to the other criteria when determining the final rankings. The ride quality score takes into account, things like: skill level required to achieve maximum braking in the wet, ease of throttle control, and things like slipping off of the deck of the EMOVE Cruiser during the brake test (something that actually happened, though the slip in the video was staged, of course).

Prepare for a Long Motorcycle Ride

It could have been a dream for a long time but now that I am in a position for a long motorcycle ride, I want to be ready, so I have to prepare myself both physically, mentally and be motorcycle equipped. Being middle aged and in a position that I can take off with my partner is a great feeling. Carefree for three months on a motorcycle is something that I actually dreamed of.

Installing New Motorcycle Handlebars

Whether you are looking to get more leverage, a better riding posture or looking to give your modern motorcycle a vintage look; installing handlebars is one of the easiest and most notable modifications you can do with $75 and 50 minutes. You will need basic hand tools. First, think about the goals of your ideal handlebars.

How To Get Your Motorcycle License – The Steps Involved

If you’re thinking about driving a motorcycle for the first time this year, you better think about whether or not you can legally do so first. In order to legally ride a motorcycle, you have to have either a motorcycle permit or a motorcycle license. Here are the options that you have for getting a motorcycle license.

Motorcycle Audio – Accessorize With A Helmet With Speakers

Motorcycle riders are very much interested in accessorizing their helmets. In fact, there are many options available in the market if you too are interested in this work. Having a simple helmet makes a person feel bored but at the same time if it is accessorized and many useful and functional accessories are added to it, they feel much better wearing it.

Do You Know Your Motorcycle Well Enough To Ride Safely?

Riding a motorcycle is something that not only requires certain skills and abilities that you normally wouldn’t use when driving a normal passenger vehicle, but also requires that you be very comfortable with your motorcycle and it’s components. Do you know your motorcycle well enough to ride it safely? Here are some things to consider.

The Motorbike Clothing Items That Everybody Needs

If you are just getting into the exciting world of bike riding then we are pretty sure that you will be both curious and interested in exactly what equipment you will need to stay safe and secure – aside from the bike itself, of course! And that’s why we are here to offer you our guide on which equipment is essential when getting into the wonderful world of motorbike riding.

Repairing Cracked Motorcycle Plastics

As if tipping over your motorcycle in a parking lot didn’t make you feel stupid enough, learning the plastics damaged in the 0 mph crash will cost hundreds of dollars to replace will reaffirm your belief in an unjust world. While repairing the ABS plastic found on motorcycle fairings is straightforward, the plastic tends to break at the weakest point and if the point was weak when it was new, the fixed plastic will be a patch.

Counter Intuitive Steering

To understand counter steering, remove the front wheel of a ten speed bicycle. Grab both ends of the axle and roll the tire across the ground fast enough to keep the wheel spinning. Now try to turn the wheel to the left.

Fixing a Motorcycle Flat Tire

At highway speeds it took Michael a few seconds to realize the rear tire was flat and he was riding straight into California’s Mojave Desert on a rim. Pulling off the freeway into a gas station, Michael looked at the rear tire and found a nail.

Lubricating Cables

After a Portland, Oregon winter of riding his motorcycle in the rain, Doug’s throttle began to stick and was slow to return to idle. Additionally, the clutch required more effort to engage as well. Besides posing a safety risk, the extra effort required to operate these controls takes attention away from the road ahead and fatigues muscles quicker than fully operating controls.
