They have the best acceleration and braking of any other scooter I've tried here, for me, so many of the trips I need to make are too far to walk most of the time, but also a bit too short for me to want to deal with my car. They are especially nice when going up the hills here in Atlanta( something that isn't fun on a normal bike). I'm super sad to see them leave. Other scooters aren't as nice to use or are more expensive.
