Big Scootin

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Monday, June 24, 2013,
In addition to the usual uses as a commuter vehicle the big scooter has enjoyed a few trips to Binghamton for various reasons. Last Thursday I had to ride to Binghamton to see a Podiatrist about ending the ongoing pain in my foot. The reason turned out to be so minor that it's a wonder that it caused so much pain. It seems that I strained it so badly at work that I stressed the muscle that runs through the foot. A little anti-inflamation medication, some ice, better shoes and gel pads along w...

Ride to Work Day

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Monday, June 17, 2013,
For those of you not acquainted with it, the third Monday in June has been annually designated as "Ride Your Motorcycle to Work Day". Unfortunately for me today is one of my days off so I used the big scooter to do some errands. The first was to bring a package to the local Post Office to mail off to our nephew in Webster, NY. The weather today is gorgeous and the thermometer at the bank across from the Post Office read 76*. It's one of those days when you wish you had someplace about fifty m...

Another Sunday

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Sunday, June 16, 2013,
It was Fathers Day, it was lunchtime, we were hungry. What a perfect excuse for a ride. I chose Wendy's for the meal and had the perfect vehicle for a food run. Now I know you're thinking, "So big deal, he dragged out the 50cc bike to run to town." My original thought exactly but that isn't what I did. The problem with the 50cc is that the crate on the back is open so the food would be cold by the time I got home. No, the answer was to take the big scooter. First, it has two sealed compartmen...

A Morning Commute

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Sunday, June 9, 2013,
Lately my job has had me starting at four in the morning on Sundays putting out stickers indicating an item is on sale for the week. Saying that the effort to get up that early in the morning is taxing is an understatement. I dislike missing an opportunity to commute to work but it has to be warm, dry and have a low percentage of chance to precipitate for me to take the big scooter. Two things make an early morning ride a test. The first is the occasional fog I encounter on the route. It can ...

The Useful Engine

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Wednesday, June 5, 2013,
Back when my sons were little they watched the adventures of Thomas the Tank Engine-alot. One of the ways that an engine on the show was congratulated for going above and beyond was by being called a "Really Useful Engine". My big scooter has attained that title this week by being my vehicle of choice on a pair of good sized rides and saving me a pile of gas money. I'm having a health dilemma this week involving a painful foot and it has required a pair of trips to my Doctor's office in Bingh...
