I’m contemplating riding and buy a scooter. Maybe a gogoro but they look a little small.
I think it will save me some time and possibly money in the long run. I ride the mrt. 35nt and a cab to work from the stop that’s about 80-100nt. So daily commute is 250-300. Sometimes more if I can’t catch the last mrt to go home. Which is about a 200nt uber ride.
I do have a car I can use but I don’t particularly like to drive in taipei if I can avoid it. Plus finding parking is an annoyance and cost money as well. It’s a nice car and it can get really really costly to get it to the shop. I only use it to get out of the city pretty much or have to make a long drive to the airport to pick up family or help people move stuff.
Scooter riding, I’m a bit scared as I don’t like how the gas and brakes are set up. I feel good in a car, I was racing cars, karting circuits and drag racing before I had my drivers license so I feel at home in a car. Scooters and motor bikes are another story. I’ve feel off them multiple tries with a motor bike and scooter because of the brake and gas issue. And I’m generall afraid of riding in taipei traffic.
Anyone had a huge fear of riding scooters and got over it?
