A scooter can be a great economical alternative to a car for running errands as well as daily commutes to work or school. But it is important to keep in mind that when shopping for a new scooter, it is no different than shopping for a car or a motorcycle. It takes patience and research to find the best one for your needs. Continue reading Buying Your First Scooter: What You Need to Know
People look at buying a scooter for all sorts of reasons, but a desire to reduce their carbon footprint is high on the list of reasons to ditch a car and turn to a two-wheel type of daily transport. There are a number of ways that scooters can help save the planet, but it should also be mentioned that riding a scooter is just plain fun. Continue reading Help Save the Planet — Ride a Scooter!
Riding a motorcycle is not only an exciting experience, but it’s a great way to save money on gas and reduce environmental pollution when it comes to getting around. To prepare yourself for every trip, it is important for your safety to wear the appropriate motorcycle gear. The most important types of gear you will need include a helmet, jacket, eye protection and gloves.
These items are available in a range of styles, sizes and designs. It is important that you wear motorcycle safety gear that is well-fitting and designed to protect you while riding as well as in an accident.
A motorcycle helmet is designed to protect you from the impact resulting from a crash. Motorcycle riders who do not wear a helmet have a greater chance of suffering severe head injuries, and in some cases, death. A helmet should fit snug and be DOT rated. The type of helmet you wear depends on your individual style.
There are several types of motorcycle helmets to choose from, but the most popular include:
- Full-face helmets are made to cover your entire head and face. They are vented for comfort and have a visor to protect your face from debris, bugs and other environmental elements. This type of helmet offers the most protection, both while riding and if you are involved in a crash.
- Open-face helmets are similar to a full helmet, except they do not provide coverage for your face.
- Half-shell (beanie) helmets only cover the top half of your head. This type of helmet provides the least amount of protection. If you choose to wear this type of helmet, it is recommended that you also wear goggles or another type of protective eyewear.
A jacket is also high on the list of motorcycle safety gear. Regardless of the temperature, it is highly recommended that you wear a jacket. A motorcycle jacket will not only protect you against the wind and cold temperatures, but if you are in a crash, the jacket will provide protection for your arms, back and chest against road burn and lacerations.
Motorcycle jackets are typically made from leather, Kevlar and/or nylon. Make sure it fits well and, for added protection, consider one with a reflective strip.
Motorcycle gloves will help keep you warm, but they will protect your hands in case of a fall. It is natural to automatically use your hands to break a fall, and if you aren’t wearing gloves, you can end up seriously hurting them. When choosing gloves, leather or Kevlar typically provide the best warmth and the most protection.
Whether you prefer goggles or traditional sunglasses, wearing eye protection is one of the most important pieces of motorcycle gear you will ever need. When riding without eye protection, there is a risk of debris, dust and dirt getting in your eyes, which increases the risk of getting in an accident as well as damaging your eyes. Choose eyewear that fits comfortably and covers the entire eye area.
When choosing motorcycle gear, take your time in making your choices. It is important to always wear quality, well-made items that are made with durable materials, such as leather or Kevlar. Items should fit well, not too loose or too tight.

When the summer season arrives, everyone is aching to get outdoors and enjoy the weather. It’s also a great time to break out the ATV so you can get out to explore some off-road trails. ATVs are fun and exciting, but they can also be dangerous, especially if you aren’t properly prepared. The following ATV safety tips will help you have safer, more enjoyable rides this summer.
Choosing the Right ATV
ATVs come in a range of sizes and models, so it is important to choose the right one for your individual needs and experience. For example, if you will be riding with a passenger, only choose an ATV that is built for two riders. Trying to ride with a passenger on an ATV built for one person can restrict your movement and put you at risk of a serious accident.
Safety Training Course
If you have never ridden an ATV before, you should seriously consider taking a professional safety training course. There are ATV safety training course available in most states that are taught by driving professionals. A training course will provide a range of benefits from how to avoid accidents to what the best riding conditions are.
Dress for Safety
One of the most important things that will keep you safe when riding is dressing appropriately. The majority of injuries resulting from ATV accidents are head injuries, so you should always wear a well-made, high quality full-face helmet. Other types of safety equipment you should wear includes:
- Long pants
- Long sleeve shirt
- Over-the-ankle boots
- Eye protection, especially if you’re not wearing a full-face helmet
Good Running Condition
Always keep your ATV in top operating condition. If the vehicle isn’t maintained properly, you are putting yourself at risk of an accident. Be sure to routinely check the tires for proper inflation, if the tread is thin, replace them. Check the fluids before each ride to make sure the levels are good.
Riding an ATV in inclement weather is just as risky as driving a car in bad weather, so make sure to check the foreand the condition of the trail before you go out. Although part of the fun of ATV riding is going through the mud, if the weather is bad, it can be extremely dangerous trying to maneuver through the mud in a downpour. Make sure the visibility is good before you head out on the trail, especially if it is a trail you have never ridden on.
Never Ride Alone
You never know when an accident or other emergency can happen, so it is highly recommended that you always ride with other riders, especially on trails and/or terrain you are unfamiliar with. If your children are operating their own ATV, always make sure they have adult supervision. If you are riding alone, make sure to carry a cellphone in case of an emergency.
There is nothing better than spending the day out on the trails, but it is essential that you are aware of the potential dangers. Remember, riding on a trail is much different than riding on the street, so make sure you get familiar with the vehicle before you ride it.

ATVs and UTVs have a wide variety of uses, ranging from hard work to just plain fun. These two types of vehicles are similar in many ways. Both offer four-wheel drive and can be used in outdoor work settings. They also can be used to have some off-road fun on your days off. However, there are several key differences that you need to know about in order to make an informed decision about which vehicle class is the best choice for you and your needs. Read on for everything you need to know about the differences between ATVs and UTVs.

With a few accessories, you can turn your ATV into anything from a snow plow to a garden cart. Here are only a few ideas of how you can put your new ATV to work.
With the cost of gas and the increase in traffic, many people are choosing to ride a street scooter or a motorcycle for their daily commute. Riding a scooter is an exciting feeling, but if you have never ridden before, it can also be a bit scary.
Street scooters are a solution to so many problems, especially as a gas efficient and inexpensive means of transportation. More and more Americans are letting go of the erroneous stereotypes that have plagued scooters in the past and are embracing the real value of this type of vehicle.
Growing concerns about fluctuating gas prices and the detriment that fossil fuel acquisition and consumption cause the environment also support the wider spread use of the street scooter. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to get 90 to 100 miles per gallon?
Have customers been asking you if you carry street scooters? If so, now is the perfect time to establish a partnership with a dealer like Peace Sports Wholesaler.
Scooters for Everyone
All of our scooters use an electric start/kick start alternative starting system, no matter the engine size, and require final assembly of the battery, mirrors, front wheel and trunk set up. As with any vehicle, its performance (speed, fuel consumption and durability) depends on the amount of weight that it has to support and the condition of the roads that are used.
Nightsky is an introductory product for 2016 and is the latest addition to our collection of 50cc engine size scooters. It has a 2-gallon fuel capacity and a maximum speed of 35 mph. This scooter is ideal for beginners or for someone who will make short trips that usually keep them on side streets or less traveled roads.
The TPGS-802 (Xplorer) is an example of our 150cc engine size scooters. It has a 2-gallon fuel capacity and can reach speeds up to 65 mph. It is great for more experienced riders who are more comfortable with riding longer distances or different routes because it allows them to travel on highways.
Laws concerning the use of a street scooter vary from state to state. These laws typically include rules on the following:
- Requiring an operating license (a few states require a scooter specific license and some do not require a license at all)
- Age limit (most states require riders to be at least 15)
- Insurance coverage
- Title ownership
- Helmets (may apply to particular age groups)
You’ll want to take these into account when selling street scooters at your store, and make sure buyers are aware of the restrictions in your particular state.
