It's Not Just Me Then !

Just been looking on the BBC local news site and there's a link to a story in a Doncaster local paper.

It concerns a photo that someone has taken showing a mobility scooter looking tiny on the back of a huge recovery low loader.

Apparently the photo has gone viral on the net.

A good job that no one took a photo my scooters arrival on an identical low loader a couple of years back.

Any scooter user with an ounce of sense will take out insurance for their scooter, it will do a lot of damage if you hit a prestige motor, mine weighs about 3 cwt. Included in the insurance is a recovery service if you break down.

Who do they use to recover you ?, you've guessed it, a car recovery service.

My insurance covers me for up to 3 recoveries a year, ( I've only broken down once in 5 years), 'so it can't be that rare an occurrence.

Anyway It's not just me then. :wub:

It must depend on what recovery vehicle the recovery company has available. I suppose as most of their trade is in recovering cars and not scooters they don't have a specialist "scooter recovery vehicle" and so use what they have that will do the job, and if that happens to be a low loader capable of recovering just about any other road vehicle then that's what they will use.

I never had to be recovered as a motorcyclist but I suppose if a motorbike broke down they would do the same.

I have had to be recovered with a Reliant 3 wheeled vehicle and they had to send a flat bed recovery vehicle for that as one of those things with 2 wide gutter sectioned rails spaced to the width of the wheels as used on car transporters would not work for a vehicle with a central wheel.
