Twosome Scooter


We spotted this gentlemen riding his Scooter at the grocery store this morning.  He said he gets around all over town and even drove it to Mack Road one day.  His wife rides in it with him.  He is excited that West Sacramento is working on more bike friendly lanes on our main drags.

Find out more about The Palmer Twosome Scooter.... This full suspension electric two person scooter will take two of you almost anywhere a car can go and then some: down the lane, out to the barn, to the Doc's, the store, the church, or wherever the spirit moves you. Able to climb the steepest hills in San Francisco, go across grass, gravel, snow and unpaved roads this electric wheelchair is also ideal for those who have lost their license through macular degeneration and etc. and still need to travel locally. It has Moped Wheels for these adventuresome travels. Made in USA

Hungry Heros

These hungry fire fighters made a quick stop by the SactoMoFo's food truck event in Lowe's parking lot last night on their way back to their home station house on Sacramento Avenue. They were called to the West Side to assist in putting out two grass fires in the Southport area. The Fire and Police personnel in West Sacramento are just the best and we really appreciate their service in protecting our community.
