I've resolved to scooter to all of my classes this spring. It's a six mile ride mostly through town. Today I was pleasantly rewarded for my tire studding efforts with a solid snow storm.
The fresh snow of the parking lot was light and fluffy and traction was great. Kate insisted on taking a picture.
The roads were not so great. The small tires on the scooter hunted in the parallel tire tracks in the loose snow and I had to outrigger most of the way. After passing a few stuck cars on the main drag, I stopped to take a picture of the conditions. The scooter really doesn't like tracked crud.
About 30 minutes after takeoff I got to school. I was late, so I could only grab a shot while walking in.
Luckily the motorcycle parking wasn't all taken up with cars and the small plow had taken a swipe that the scooter fit into perfectly.
Here's my spot after Microbiology let out at 9ish.
It took about 3 minutes to get the engine to catch. I figure it was about 10F.
On the way home the roads were great! Compact snow and ice with only a few bumpy and loose parts. I averaged 25MPH. Some Golden cops pulled up next to me on the way home in their big SUV and we chatted before I took them off the line.
It's good to be back in the saddle but I think a larger front wheel is in order...
I'll be passing through your hood tomorrow a.m.
I'll honk on the way by
May we assume your muffler's been replaced since FMF? That was quite an entrance BTW.
That ride should keep you alert and on your toes!!
It's hard to make a good entrance these days. Since I used up the muffler-falling-off trick, I'm all out of entrance plans for the next FMF.
Strangely enough, I got a great deal on a local stock muffler. Then I safety-wired the bolts.
Damn, you are nuts!
Okay, you TOTALLY rawk.
Good to see you back out there in it, Dysco.
The funniest thing is that it's true. I had them for maybe 100 feet before they blew by me. It might have been me looking over my shoulder and grinning...
"How does that thing do in the snow?"
"Well, I made it this far..."
Most excellant extreme riding
