We have paid into the system for years so its payback time , What annoys me is people who fiddle the system when there is nothing wrong with them .
Good for you Mike just one question if you get stuck in mud or it breaks down is there a rescue team as there is for cars .

It's a chap with a limp, a mobility scooter and a yellow flashing light.

There is indeed a rescue service paid through the Motability service. I was surprised, too :D

I had an interesting conversation with TGA mobility about getting a Breeze S4. Yes, they were happy to do it on Motability, and happy to arrange a test drive. Post code please? No deal. If I lived in Oban, 6 miles away, they would do it. It's the servicing. They don't cross water.

I expressed incredulity and, I have to say, disappointment. However, the lady did say she would pass my details on to a Scottish dealer, but that would be a purchase and not motability for the reasons given.

Next morning, I got a call from a cheerful Scot who stays in Aberdeen, but supplies mobility scooters across Scotland and includes Orkney, Shetland, Lewis and Harris and the Isle of Mull.
Sure he could do motability- he did say some folk don't want to use it, but it's no problem. So a week on Friday he said he was in Oban, so he'd come over to give me a test drive of a Breeze S4. He is an official TGA agent.

Some lack of communication, methinks. :roll:

It must be a sign of age Mike when you are comparing models of motability scooters rather than cars! :lol: :lol:

Last time it snowed on Mull, as I recall, was April 27, 2016. One day. Beat that 8)

Haven’t been on the forum recently, so it’s probably been a bit quiet. It’s hard work being on three forums, but that’s what happens with three chronic conditions. :roll:

Tomorrow I get transported to Glasgow, where having been dropped off at the Deathstar, I make my own way for an overnight stay in a hotel. Next morning back for a 10.15 appointment to become radioactive. At 2.15 I get a SPECTscan to highlight the activity in my brain to assess the dopamine deficiency. Then, too late for transport home, back to the hotel. Next morning, back to the Deathstar to get transport home. :D

Deathstar: local slang for the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital
SPECTscan: Single Photon Emission Computerised Tomography
Hotel: Hilton Garden Hotel. Viewers of BBC Scottish news will know this as the building just along from the crane on the north bank of the Clyde. Fabulous views from the rooms across the river to the STV building and the BBC further down. The £25 subsistence allowance (which I don’t bother to claim) doesn’t, I have to say, remotely cover the cost. :shock:

By the time I get home I won’t glow in the dark. :mrgreen:

Have a good trip!
