A Good Year

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Wednesday, October 30, 2013,
Yesterday I used the big scooter to commute to work for the 70th time. A quick trip to my calculator tells me that the scooter compiled 2,450 miles of use as a work traveler. That total is not so huge in the face of average automobile mileages of 12,000 miles but it bodes well in the arena of average motorcycle use. That average number is approximately 2,500 miles and says to me that I achieved that mileage through commuting alone. The actual use this season is much higher. At the moment the ...

Just when I thought it might be another mild winter Nature gave me a wake up call. This past week has been quite chilly and I've ridden in temperatures hovering in the mid-thirties.

Moving Right Along

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Saturday, October 5, 2013,
If you were with us last time, I was waiting for scooter parts to be delivered to fix Wild Turkey damage. Sure enough the Post Office dropped off the needed parts to make the big scooter whole again. The good news was that the deflector replacement went like clockwork, the bad news was I broke the glass in the rear view mirror fighting to mount it. I ordered a new mirror-again-and repaired the scooter this past Wednesday when it arrived. Only this time I was much more careful and installed it...
