About Me

Hello! My goal is to create a convenient way to find American made goods of all sorts. I host a new giveaway nearly every week, and I add new links every day! *I do not get paid for any of this. I just want to show Americans how easy (and important) it is to support companies who are manufacturing high quality goods right here in the USA and hiring American workers! Buy American!

Go Ped Giveaway!!!!!

Scooters and go-karts are fun for all ages, but trying to find high quality, American made models seems impossible these days. Until I discovered Go-Ped!! The Go-Ped brand includes self-powered, electric, and gas-powered scooters for the entire family. They also manufacture some amazing off-road and racing karts.

Beginning in 1985 with a prototype for a new motorized personal transportation device, the Patmont family launched Patmont Motor Werks, creators of the Go-Ped Brand of original folding motorized scooters. Today, Patmont Motor Werks is the world leader in personal transportation and proudly produces the world's finest portable transportation devices out of it's "enlarged garage", a 70,000 sq ft, "state of the art" production facility in Minden, Nevada USA.

One lucky winner will receive one of Patmont Motor Werks' Know-Ped Go-Ped!! ($142.00)
In order to enter, go take a look through the excellent Go-Ped products, and pick your favorite. Then, come back here and leave a comment listing that favorite product. (open to U.S. shipping addresses only) You must enter by Sunday, March 2.

Thanks

:) AZ AMPMMom said...

I thought the SUPER GO-QUAD 46 was pretty sweet!

The Random Muse said...

Hi,
Thanks for the comment and the heads up. My favorite is the Know-Ped, the one being given away. It would be very handy for getting around the rather huge campus quickly, and it would be much less of a hassle to get to said campus than the bicycle I currently use since it is much smaller and folds for carrying. Even though one of the models with an engine would likely be faster and would be better for the hills, I would never remember to fuel it up and I find myself perpetually broke even without that expense, so this one would be better for me.
I am an Environmental Science major.

Jenna said...

GSR Cruiser is my pick, too. Great giveaway!

Lilith Silvermane said...

It's the Go Wagon all the way! I love it! My girls are so little, and this is the perfect "transportaion" for them most of the time!

Thank you for the giveaway!

Laura M.- Editor said...

I like the grow ped for kids :) Thanks!

carolsue said...

I'd go with the Trail Ripper Quad also. It would be so cool to own!

charlana said...

The Trail Ripper Quad looks like a ton of fun!

Jenny said...

I love the go cart. It would be perfect for zipping around our neighborhood!

brandy w said...

i like the esr750ex because it's energy efficient.

Rising Rainbow said...

I think the sport would be perfect for me at horse shows.Sometimes my pigs get awful tired walking back and forth from the stalls to the show arenas

Dawn Alice Rogers said...

I like the Trail Ripper best, cool stuff!

I like the Grow-Ped best, although they all look cool! A great alternative to the car for those short, close hops.

Tonya said...

I like the super quads myself. Count me in!

Kristie said...

I like the Trail Ripper Quad. It would be great for going through the fields around here.

Julianna said...

The GSR Cruiser is pretty bad-*ss, but I like the old school Grow-Ped, too!

twogeorgiamommies@gmail.com

PS said...

The Riot Competition looks close enough to a dirt bike! Fun!

2migirlsmom said...

I like the super go quad.

Adventures In Babywearing said...

Wow- I have all boys and they would probably like any of those great scooters! Since I am a little weary of gas power just yet for them, the Know Ped or Grow Ped are PERFECT!

Steph

Tuesday Girl said...

I would love to ride the go quad!

jennifer57 said...

GSR Cruiser

amylou61 said...

Mama Zen said...

I love the Go-Quads!

Chantelle said...

amanda_elmer@yahoo.com

Amy W said...

I love the Grow ped as well!!

Shelly said...

I think a red GSR Cruiser would be cool!

Nicole D said...

Stephanie M said...

I think the Super Gro Ped. Let them use their own energy!

theteo5 said...

my kids would love the quad. think of the fun in the woods they would have!

Heather said...

I like the grow ped since it is for kids.
katebeth45 at gmail dot com

Darlene said...

My favorite is the GO Ped Riot. I would use this on a daily basis to visit my kids and g-kids. Its a little to far to walk and with the price of gas this would be perfect. Lots of open land between us so I could zip right thru leaving the traffic on the streets.

aBookworm said...

Go-Wagon's my fave - perfect to take my kid around.

Heather said...

I love the natural powered scooters (as opposed to the "gas" powered). Those look amazing! I would love some SUPER GROW-PEDs for our kids!

OMH said...

How I wish I knew about this site prior to Christmas - I spent HOURS looking in stores for a SCOOTER that could grow with my 5 year old grandson.......look here is a perfect one...here on the internet just at the tip of my fingers :)

Read about this GROW-PED below!!!

The Grow-Ped is a miniature version of the Know-Ped, designed for the young Go-Ped enthusiast. It is crafted with shorter handlebars and a smaller frame and deck to properly fit the younger rider.

Donna said...

My husband and son would love either the Trail Ripper Quad or the Ultimate Racing Kart! If I had to pick one as the favorite, I'd say the Trail Ripper Quad since it is designed to go off road.

Anonymous said...

We go dirt biking in the desert quite a bit. The Trail Ripper Quad would be tons of fun for the kids.

Trail Ripper Quad, hands down. As you know, we have had some major Go Kart problems here at the park (http://theparkwife.blogspot.com/2007/12/go-cart-debacle.html)

The Buckaroo's would LOVE to have a sccoter to ride in the Park. However, Big Buckaroo might make me ride it everywhere to save on gas.

I really like the ESR750EX, the electric scooter. It just seems right with the price of gas. And I know that the know-ped go-ped does not use anything but human power, just the thought of an electric scooter seems so cool.

We like to live as green as possible. I like the Know-Ped.
