Oddometer: 3,117
Just an update. I rode this thing across town a little while ago. 36 miles. Odometer is dead on accurate. Have not checked speedo yet.

It is nice being able to accelerate up a hill from 30 to 40mph indicated.

My Genuine Rattler 50 would not do this.

Everything is smooth and the brakes and traction are excellent. Brakes are a true "1 finger" affair.

I thought the odometer was way off because the mileage was going up so quickly.

Not sure if I will keep or sell the bike as it is truly a gem as far as scoots go and it could be operated for little to nothing.

Can't say how much fun this thing is. It is hilarious!

Also, the thermometer has yet to go off of the first block on the digital gauge and as described earlier, the break in of limited throttle still nets 30 to 40mph at half throttle so it is fun while still going slow.
