Scooters

Hi all,

Going Candolim 16th November and wondering how much per day is scooter hire. Hired bikes before in many countries and in Thailand which was a bit like Wacky Races, but being a sensible rider i had no problems and enjoyed getting out an about. Safety is paramount ! So how much per day am i looking at ? Is it reasonably safe ? Do you get stopped with Police (and pay them a bribe which i have heard) ? Do you have to show them a licence ?

I appreciate any reply's

Thanx

Tex

Tex; if ur used 2 rideing bikes don't bother wiv scooters, get a bike avenger or tret urself 2 a enfield. About 200rps 4 a scooter 250/300rps 200cc avenger, 350/400 enfield. Make shure u have a I.d.p. Easy 2 get 4rm post office or a.a. Leave 200rps in ur licence fixes most probs. V. Big pot holes scooter wheels 2 small bike much more comfey. Good luck, and be careful out there man.

If you have a IDP, you don't need to give the cops "gifts".

Beware, though, of the drivers in Goa. Rules of the road do not exist! If you thought Thailand was like the "wacky races".....omg! Thailand is like a collection of very old ladies in wheelchairs compared to Goa.

Good luck!
