Western North Carolina has some of the best riding in the Country. The roads are curvy. They are carved through some rugged mountains. There is a lot of great scenery. There is some strange scenery. Best of all, it is not to far away for us, so my lovely bride of nearly 25 years and I decided to spend Memorial day weekend riding through some of the best North Carolina has to offer. We weren't the only one with this idea, we saw many other couples out riding the area, but we were the only ones we saw 2-up on a small scooter. Here's our new toy: It's a brand new, 2009 Aprilia Sport City 250. The Aprilia in action: And then there's us. We're not exactly brand new But we are young enough to spend a weekend riding some of the steepest, twistiest, and most fun roads in the country on a scooter. I'll post The full story, including lots of pics, as soon as I have a chance.
