Now We're Riding!

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Monday, May 26, 2014,
The weather has finally begun to cooperate and my fleet is shaking off the dust of a long Winter. I have had the opportunity to ride the big scooter to work twice in the last couple of weeks, happily. Both the 150cc scooter and the 50cc bike have made numerous runs into Town for groceries, Pharmacy visits and Take Out pickups.

He treats my Chinese scooters like a...
