Whenever I see a senior citizen cruising around in their mobility scooter I feel a bit sad. They struggle to go over 5-mph, not because of lack of tech, but because the manufacturers are most likely scared of getting sued. If I was in the final quarter of my life, I would opt for the fastest damn mobility scooter on the market.
Apparently Colin Furze, a British fellow, agrees with me and has managed to stuff a 125cc motorcycle engine in to a standard mobility scooter, giving it a top speed of 69-mph. If you look at the picture… you may notice speed, some smoke, the driver shirt flying in the air… all I see is a big smile.
