Frequently & Infrequently asked questions
Q: What’s up with the name? Why the röck döts?
A: The namesake comes from the last line of samuel becketts the unnamable ‘i can’t go on I must go on ill go on’ so the first iteration of the name was ‘gooner’ but a goon is not a flattering description. Umlats phonetically signify double o so by adding them it denotes being a ‘go-oner’ because anyone who goes on göner will inevitably go wrong. Even if the scooter dies, it’s still a human-assisted scooter so the göner is never a goner, however you pronounce it. They look germanic and are purely ornamental.
Q: What are the benefits of owning a motorized scooter?
A: Owning your own scooter allows you to hop on and go. You can move independently and you don't have to rely on anyone for anything. You don't have to wait until someone has the time to take you somewhere. If you are able to walk a bit, you can take your motorized scooter along in the car, or in the bus, and when you feel tired or your legs start hurting too much, you can use the scooter and still enjoy your time away from the home with the convenience of your own.
A motorized scooter allows your body to heal even while you are taking a vacation. Your body will heal from an operation or from a disease, because you are not putting too much strain and stress on your body. The more stress and strain on your legs, the longer you will require for healing. Moving around is always good for you, and walking too much can be painful sometimes, but a motorized scooter gives you a pain free method of getting around.
Additional advantages to taking your scooter on vacation include that you will be able to use your scooter, even if the store or establishment does not have a scooter available. Riding on a new scooter, in a store or at a museum can be difficult to become accustomed to but using your own scooter you will feel comfortable and at ease. You will not be tired during your trip and you won't be putting yourself through additional pain by avoiding walking too much.
Q: What is the warranty and return policy?
A: See part 13 and part 14 of the terms and conditions, but broadly speaking 30 days for returns, 1 year limited warranty, and additional warranty will be available for purchase.

Q: Is there an app?
A: Yes, there’s an app, but only if you need it. What it’s helpful for is in the event you don’t know where your scooter is, track your distance, departures and destinations, scan for defects.
