A Growth Experience

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Sunday, September 27, 2009,
When we bought the mopeds the idea was that my stepsons would start to travel on their own more often without having Mom and Stepdad transporting them in the car. Yesterday was the first step in that process. The oldest guy had volunteered to work at the concession stand at his High School football game and would need a ride into town. It was decided that the moped was a perfect means of transport so that when he was through he could just hop on the bike and ride home instead of calling and w...

Sunday Scooter Stroll

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Sunday, September 13, 2009,
 

To celebrate the nice weather I took the scooter out today for a nice little ride. Actually it was twenty-five miles so I don't know if you'd call it little. It's been a thousand miles since I repaired its engine and it's been running quite nicely since being put back together. It broke a valve spring and I had to remove the engine from the frame. It was apart for a month due to weather and getting the pieces together. Now it hums along and I haven't heard any strange sounds or noted any o...

If you were with us last time you remember the story of the Chinese mopeds. The one thing about buying online is waiting to receive the Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin and the Bill of Sale so you can register your vehicle with the Department of Motor Vehicles. When I bought my Chinese scooter last year we had the MCO in three days. In an annoying bureaucratic mess it took five days to get the first MCO and two weeks to get the second for the mopeds. Now that they are both plated my ste...

New Additions

Up until recently there were only two motorcycles in my garage. My 650 Kawasaki and a CR-60 Honda Mini-Crosser. The Mini only got used occasionally and my bike was used in the nice weather. Then my wife decided she wanted a scooter and we bought a Chinese 150cc model for her to use. It wasn't long before she tried the little Honda and decided she wanted her own bike and a Honda Rebel took up residence in the garage. Space got tight. This Spring I embarked on a clean up campaign and at least w...

First Tale

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Sunday, September 6, 2009,
When you read people's blogs these days they're either about scooters or motorcyles. Since I have both in my garage a story from the saddle of either may be in the offing. Since this is my first writing and I want you to come back I won't go on too long, let's just say that I've been riding for a long time, have a great affection for Kawasakis and recently acquired a Chinese scooter. It all makes for some interesting adventures and depth in my life as a rider.
Hopefully some people are out th...
