July 4th Scooter sortie
The bride, who owns a Triumph Legend TT and a Ducati Monster 750 looked at the Aprilia Scarabeo with a wee bit of disdain. I pulled down the rear pegs and said "hop on".
Downtown Asheville was a zoo of SUVs with out of state plates and no parking. No worries. I pulled into nice shady spot near the best Indian restaurant in town. As I had put my vintage BMW locking cable into the top case, we locked down the helmets, stowed our gloves, and chowed down.
Later we took in some of the 4th festivities downtown, watching the dog diving - i.e. seeing how far a dog would jump chasing a toy. Pretty entertaining for a little while. We meandered through a couple open stores, then scootered home.
Instead of fighting traffic, we enjoyed ourselves, had fun, and did it very efficiently.
Not a bad way to spend the 4th in America at all.

Does the show ever stop in Asheville? We were up for the afternoon Saturday and it was going full bore. Catawba and Wicked Weed breweries were on the itinerary (no I was not riding) followed by some good eats and people watching at the M Mushroom. Yes, it is a good place to scoot. Park near a pole,chain it up and enjoy!
Why did I wait so long to do this?
