In a way I agree with Don on this, tiny tires are a bitch IF you get it in the hole, when riding with a friend who had an Areo 80 and I on my 50v I saw a hole coming out of a corner, no time to avoid, I WAS going too fast, but stood up and leaned back, tire did not bottom out, was a hell of a bump though, my friends areo, went in, and stopped, he went over the bars, ugly crash, mostly our fault though for going too fast. I agree a fatter tire is better, but I would prefer a 17" to a 12", as it is easier to keep the 17 rolling, once it stops you are hosed. You can flip a moped in a big enough pot hole. Riding a small wheel scooter is not a skill I have mastered as I have only had one a few days at a time, I'm sure with practice I would master it, it IS all about watching the road. The short wheelbase and tiny tires of scooters make them twitchy to me, hard to keep in a straight line...and yeah, I ride sober. :) Wider tires like a Zuma or Ruckus are WAY better for saving the rim if you do hit a hole. MN potholes are a bitch, due to our temp extremes, can be close to 100 in summer, and -26 in the winter, plays hell with pavement. Whatever you ride, be careful! (I have nothing against good scooters for the record, keep the China crap).(edited)
