So Close

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Thursday, January 31, 2013,
After a week of cold, then warm and raining, I almost got to ride today. It started out this morning at around 40 degrees and sunny with just one deterrent, wind gusts up to 45 mph. I was all set to keep my string of riding months going but it was just too windy. I've taken a ride on something at least once a month since a year ago. Sadly I haven't ridden at all this month and it ends today. As a personal consolation I fired up the 50cc bike just to hear it run. It started after a few cranks ...

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Friday, January 25, 2013,
The temperatures this week have hovered near zero and I walk past the garage wondering what my two wheelers think of this weather.

Adios 2012

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Wednesday, January 2, 2013,
I hope you all had a happy New Year. I'm sitting here with the tally sheet for two wheeled commuting in 2012. While it won't knock your socks off, I'm fairly content. The 150cc scooter was used 27 times for trips to work before the cylinder head started to seriously leak and stopped it. The ill fated Yamaha 250 was used once. The Honda Rebel made eight trips while the 50cc mini-motorcycle made nine runs over the hills. Lastly we have the big scooter, Galileo, at a colossal 43 trips between th...
