For the past 3 weeks or so, I have been getting up at 5:00 AM, getting on my Cali Classic, and going for about a 2 hour ride, on streets with speed limits of 45 mph or less. This is before rush hour traffic, and the streets are mostly empty. People are out jogging, walking dogs, and riding bicycles. The little scooter has been completely trouble free. I discovered I feel better for the rest of the day after doing this. Sometimes I stop at NcDonalds for coffee, sometimes I carry some coffee in a thermos under the seat. It is actually a bit chilly at 5:00, and is still very tolerable by 7:00. I have found 3 different routes so far that take about 2 hours to ride.
