The Scooter Dozen

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Tuesday, April 24, 2012,
As you may have guessed the scooter has finally reached twelve trips to work. It has a whopping 6600 miles on it, about to be 6700. I recently came across something that I wrote at the beginning of February stating it had 6100 on it which only heightened my understanding of how mild this winter has been. Last year at this time I was only beginning to ride and if I had one hundred miles on my two wheeled fleet, that was alot. Today is more winter-like with temperatures in the low forties with ...

Of course as I rode home the bike suddenly went silent. As I fruitlessly tried to start it I noticed the directional signals were still on. Without getting too ...

Lucky Seven

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Tuesday, April 3, 2012,
Last week the weather was quite inhospitable so the two wheelers stayed parked in the garage while the car became the chief commuting machine. Yesterday was different with only slightly chilly temperatures but no precipitation in the forecast. For those of you who relish the thought of taking money out of the oil companies pocket I used the scooter to go to work and saved another $6.00. I've used it seven times this year as my Not-So-Rapid Transit System saving a modest $42 in the process. It...
