. I wouldn't go back unless it was on my way. On another note, Brent, I know you rented the scooters on Anegada
. I am getting all kinds of negative remarks on another forum about how dangerous and bad the roads are and not to do it. Is it really that bad? I am not at all worried about me or my son as we have ridden motorcycles all our lives but I have a couple of daughters and wife that want their own. What's your advice?
Hi Mark ... Coming from Africa
I am not really one to judge these roads but in a nut shell ... yeah ... one has to be a bit wise about driving scooters at Anegada and if one is then it will be fine.
It gets more dangerous after a couple of glasses of rum
(LOL) but I rented a scooter for my daughter Jenna who is not a 'scooter person' and she was fine.
One has to go slowly and take extra special care for donkeys ... they tend to do unexpected things such as wander out in front of one.
Where the road stops and becomes dirt it gets dangerous so that is a place to really slow down to a crawl ... (had Ana squealing a few times) ... but in all honesty if one is mindful of these things and drives defensively the experience is what makes the journey so much more fun, and being mindful of the dangers it REALLY is NOT the danger
people present it to be!
From what I have seen on the few occasions we have now visited Anegada, there are some guys who drink way too much rum
and then mount their scooters ... I think they are the ones that end up eating dirt!
My daughter still talks about her scooter rides on Anegada.
You will need to present some form of drivers license
... I provided my expired one and it was not a problem ... would definitely recommend doing it
