Walk as long as you’re body lets you.  Unfortunately my knees & hips said “no way” about 5/6 years ago.  

Totally understand brother.  I've had three surgeries on my right knee to include a bilateral replacement, a torn meniscus, and finally a total replacement.  I have three long screws holding my right hip together so I'm sort of a bionic ole rascal on my right side.. 😁  Plus once you hit the 70 year old mark, many if not all of your moving parts are on borrowed time..... 😉   I'm pretty sure my right knee replacement will be worn out in a few years.   Not looking forward to that surgery again!

Just for future reference what is the best aftermarket provider of parts? Is there like a NAPA or Autozone brand for parts?

I have the new larger cup holder and I will check it out today. I'm also going to use the umbrella holder to give me a break while walking in the 90 degree temps!  When you don't have to push ya cart, you have the option to use a umbrella to protect your skin and stay a bit cooler.

Hmm would be interesting to see how that works with the remote. With my M5 since I need to be behind the cart for the most part I assume if I were using an umbrella for shade I would be under it most of the time. With the M7 remote, how far away is the cart from you normally during a round? I guess you can adjust the speed to stay under the umbrella as you walk?

You can also use "manual" mode with the M7, if you want to stay with it.  You can operate the same as you do the M5 with the dial on the handle.

Congrats to the whole team at Motocaddy!   That speaks volumes for the product.  Pretty cool that the testers get to test the best electric cart out there.  I have posted the review thread a couple times on FB when people are asking about the best electric cart.  Now I guess I have TWO links to post !!

Actually I just send the cart way ahead and I stroll along with my umbrella using my FREE hands.   Now if it was raining I would want to keep my umbrella and clubs in close proximity.

oh I get it. The umbrella holder just holds your umbrella while you hit...hmm never really thought about carrying the umbrella during rounds to shade from the sun but maybe next round I walk I will try it

Does anyone have a Tesla model 3? Does this fit in the trunk along with a set of golf clubs without having to take the wheels off the moto M7? If you have a picture also that would be awesome. Thanks

What I have done on my range sessions is tote it and walk my regular speed which is #3. When I get to the range I put my umbrella on the stand thing on the Motocaddy. Really the whole set up works well for me in the range club testing sessions. I can cool off under the shade make notes or weight changes. My cold water is at hands reach and I keep my note cards in the card holder and write on them. The bag deal really works well too. I keep the bag in the shop and load what ever clubs I am going to try out in that bag. The Motorcaddy bag stays loaded to grab and go with tees balls gloves etc. On Fridays when I am practicing my gamer stuff I just throw the Jones Bag or old Hoofer on it and go. I figure maybe in a month or so when the tourist golfers leave I may be able to walk my 5 hole rounds again. Yep the Motocaddy set up has helped me tremendously in my rehab.

Do not know what happened above. Dreaded double post.

Next is sorta embarrassing. Somehow I managed to turn the Motocaddy over and not sure how. Had did a big range session and had my Titleist Mini Staff bag on it with my 690 MBs in it. Did a extended range session for me. Went to the clubhouse to use the facilities. I did take the remote in with me. I do not honestly remember locking it. Came back out and found the Motocaddy turned over wheels sideways running. All the old fart Mens groups sitting at the tables laughing. They said it just started and ran jumped the curb and turned over. I do not know if I hit the go button on the remote or one of them messed with it. I righted it and no damage. I ended going back to the range no problem. Usually I hang the remote on the umbrella slot and lock it. What I do now is reach down and un hook the battery. If those old farts attempts to mess with it they do not have the sense of effort to plug it in. But then again the test goes on it is tough. So we know now it will survive a flip. LOL one of my old racing buddies will say " if it can be turned over Stu can do it" Yeah I turned a car over one night on the straightaway running by myself. That had an explanation I was setting the springs to get into the next turn and the RR tire blew and the rim bit into the dirt. The Motocaddy turn over had one of two reasons and so I eliminated both possibilities. Nothing in the design just human interference. And trust me if I have have heard the story one time I have heard it 50 times about the self propelled carts running in the lake somewhere. I told one of the old farts the other day that you must have been one of the 50 people around here standing around watching  that.  The story starts the same way always " When I was up North I saw"
