HOW TO DRIVE THE ELECTRON POPPED
Find an open and safe place;
If this is your first time riding an electric scooter, try taking it somewhere with little traffic and no hills. For example, an empty parking lot is a good choice. This way you can focus on learning in a safe environment at your own pace.
Lift the kickstand Before taking off, lift the kickstand under or next to the scooter. He will duck after that, so make sure you hold on.
Start and stay;
First stick to the steering wheel. To get started, simply put one foot on the deck, start and press the accelerator. For better balance, you can place your non-dominant foot forward on the deck, kick, lean forward and hold the handlebars with both hands. As you move, you can place your dominant foot on the bridge behind your non-dominant foot.
Use the accelerator pedal to accelerate;
Different types of electric scooters have different throttles. If your scooter has different modes, set it to the slowest mode when learning to ride your Electric scooter for Adult. It is best to use a gentle touch at first to move the scooter. Remember to keep your weight forward as you accelerate. Put your weight on your back leg and use that leg to help your body lean forward. This saves you from pulling the steering wheel. When you start to feel stable, try the accelerator.
Steering wheel and steering wheel;
When you ride your electric scooter, turning the steering wheel turns your electric scooter. Like the accelerator pedal, movements should be slow and steady so that the movement is as comfortable as possible. You may need to strengthen your core and adjust your weight to maintain balance. The entire panel should be kept mostly straight. Try to rely on the movement and direction of your weight. Weight shifting is important to keep the scooter upright. If you turn the whole panels too much, you may cause the scooter to fall over.
Brake to stop;
Pull the brake lever to slow down and stop the scooter. Pull slowly as there is a risk of being thrown from the scooter. As you brake, bend your knees and shift your weight to your feet as if you were sitting down. Never leave the steering wheel!
Look forward to it;
When riding an electric scooter, remember to look straight ahead to see where you are going. That way, you can recognize potential hazards and be prepared to steer or brake accordingly. Every ride has different conditions, so be aware of your speed and adapt to the conditions around you. Remember to enjoy the ride and drive within your personal limits.
Know the traffic rules;
Just as it is important to know the rules of the road when driving a car or motorcycle, it is also important to know the rules of the road when it comes to electric scooters. Every country and city has its own rules and regulations regarding electric scooters. Make sure you know the rules specific to your area to avoid problems.
Once you get used to these steps, riding an electric scooter is just like riding a bicycle! To get the most out of your e-scooter, you can ask an experienced friend to help you learn and stay on track.
