Mobility scooter repair

My friend is reliant on a mobility scooter for getting around. She has a fairly active lifestyle and as a result her scooter(s) often break down causing her serious inconvenience while waiting for them to get repaired. Could you recommend some good resources for learning how to diagnose and repair scooter faults? What are the basic skills (e.g. mechanics) that one could learn to help with the process? Bonus question: can you recommend a speedy scooter repair service in Dublin, Ireland?

Whats the deal with those motorcycles in SE Asia?

What are those super popular kinds motorcycles in SE called? I've rented one in Thailand, Cambodia and the Phillipines. They were different makes but they all sort of work and look the same. They have 5 gears, but no clutch. You just let up on the gas then use a foot peddle to change gears. We could get them up to about 100km/h but that was about it. Do they sell them in Canada?

Vespa in Seattle

Hi everyone, I live in Seattle (Queen Anne to be specific), and I was wondering: (1) Whether or not a Vespa would be a great investment, better than a car, taking into account the layout of Seattle, for getting around the city, no major trips, and about as frequent as every weekend, maybe twice a week (2) Coming from NYC and not knowing how to drive, what is the best approach to learning how to drive a Vespa? Is any sort of license required, and where would I go to obtain that license? How long would it take, if I devoted time to learning regularly? Are there any issues specific to Seattle that I should take into account in taking up this project of learning how to ride and purchasing a Vespa? Any general commentary about motorized scooters is also greatly appreciated.

Where should I buy a vintage Vespa?

I want to buy a vintage vespa (pre-1970) and I keep seeing a lot of sites selling them out of Vietnam and other parts of Asia. Does anyone have experience with buying them from one of the websites?

What happens if a wheelchair operator injures someone else in an accident?

What are the repercussions for someone operating a wheelchair or motorized scooter who repeatedly runs into and/or injures others--accidentally or otherwise? Are the wheelchair-bound required to have insurance? Who pays for damages? Can restrictions be put on their speed or on the areas in which they're allowed to operate their wheelchairs? I'm seeking resources and/or detailed information for a research project and so far haven't had much luck.
