Scooters & ATVs Make Great Graduation Gifts May 11, 2011
As the weather warms up and spring turns into summer, students start getting impatient for summer vacation, and none more so than those who'll be graduating and making the transition from junior high to high school, from high school to college, or from college to the workforce. Graduation is a major rite of passage for millions of students every year, as they move on to a new chapter of their lives. This accomplishment is usually marked by parties with family and friends to celebrate passing this major milestone, and of course, gifts to reward their achievements or to prepare them for the next stage of their lives.
For kids making the move from junior high to high school, motorsports are a great gift idea. Chances are, your 13 or 14 year old has already been pestering you for a while for their own ATV, Dirt Bike, or Go Kart, and you've been hesitant because of the expense and concerns about safety, as well as wanting to wait for a major occasion to make a major purchase. Well, junior high graduation is just the right time! Kids this age are responsible and grown up enough to handle off road motorized vehicles safely, and if you look beyond the major brand names, motorsports are often a lot more affordable than you think.
Scooters are a great gift option for those students transitioning from high school to college, or from college to the workforce. Everybody knows that money is tight for college students and recent graduates, especially in these tough financial times. A scooter or moped can reduce gas expenses by 50% or more compared to a car. If your young adult will be going away to college this fall, a scooter is a great, affordable, and safe way for them to get around campus without having to worry about expensive on-campus parking permits.
