We've been talking about new purse smells on Elizabeth's blog, so it was funny that the first thing my daughter commented on as the new scooter came out of the packaging is the new scooter smell (leather seat).
I can't believe how much more comfortable this is than the old one!!! I had forgotten just how much more comfortable. The padding on the other one is like a brick, very thin when you take the cushion out. The new one feels like a good office chair.
The powerseat means I can get my legs under tables and a footrest isn't mandated. The longer leg length is also slightly elevated for comfort. The handlebars are 4 inches shorter than the GoGo allowing me to get close to a table rather than having to lean uncomfortably in or dropping food on myself. Powerseat allows me to elevate enough to use kitchen sink, do dishes *comfortably* (!), can chop vegetables from it and handle other things if I want to. Plus as a better scooter driver now the turning radius isn't as much of an issue as I would have thought, though I know it will be in some businesses. Much bigger basket. Higher back, supports more of legs, though I'd like an extra inch. Can reposition the tiller myself, as opposed to other scooter. Even when the tiller is pulled in close to avoid neck/shoulder strain, I can still get my legs out! Handlebar situation far more comfortable and ergonomically placed.
Can roll over upturned rug without stopping the thing, bodes well for door thresholds. The antitip wheels swing up so there's more clearance if you're going over a bump instead of being stopped short.
Seat will stay freely rotating rather than locking into place at one of three positions so that I can't move back and forth easily.
Did I say comfort? Gotta run--with the new scooter.
I love you, Amigo people!
