FAQ

What is Scoot! Club?

Scoot! Club is a membership organization dedicated to promoting and enhancing the scootering lifestyle throughout the U.S. Whether you ride a vintage or modern scooter (or both) we look forward to helping you further your scooter appreciation via our club publication, Scoot! Magazine; exclusive club benefits and discounts; and lifestyle products and support.

What about Scoot! Magazine?

In 2011 Scoot! Magazine transitioned to become the membership website for the Scoot! Club. Scoot! Magazine began in 1997 as a black & white magazine that covered the California vintage scooter scene. It grew quickly and in 2004 went full color. In 2011, the magazine was absorbed into The Scoot! Club in order to provide more value and timeliness for its readers. The Scoot! Club is the overarching organization and Scoot! Magazine is the news content on the club's site.

What type of scooters do you cover?

Originally it was just vintage European scooters, but in the early 2000's when new brands re-entered the US Market we began covering new scooters. We strive to cover both vintage and modern scooters evenly.

Lots of content on the site is free. What do I get for being a member?

All members receive a membership packet and an account that grants them access to all of the content on the site. If you are not a member, many of the articles will not be available to you.
