The Asian Factor

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Wednesday, August 28, 2013,
Today was one of those days when you realize how much we use foreign goods. This morning my wife's Scion xB (a Japanese car) needed to be inspected. Rather than burn gas in the Plymouth (the sole American vehicle) I followed her on my big scooter (Chinese) to the garage. Later I rode into town to retrieve the car on my Giant brand bicycle (Chinese), loaded it into the car and drove home. A set of circumstances had me needing to go back into town, so I took the Bashan scooter (Chinese) as it's...

The Bike Night

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Friday, August 2, 2013,
I went to a Bike Night. Great fun. OK, let's expand on that. Up in Sherburne, about fifty miles from here, there's is a bike night. Riders come from all over to kick tires and swap lies and show off their bikes. I've been champing at the bit to go for four years and finally decided to do it. Bidding adieu to the family for three hours I made the trip on the big scooter enjoying the roads and scenery on the way.
Once I got there I found a mini-rally in progress. I got there an hour after the of...
