I am on a mission to get enough miles for my break in service on my brand new 2020 GTS 300 HPE Touring. Yesterday afforded me the opportunity to sneak out of work for a scooter ride through the Metro Park system surrounding Cleveland. This park system has a virtually unbroken loop around Cleveland and has been dubbed the Emerald Necklace. The entire loop is just about 100 miles of beautiful park land through both urban and country settings.

Here are a few pics of my journey with the last one at the park at the end of my street right on Lake Erie.

Beauty! Great place for break in riding. BTW, they have a series of parks in Boston, also called the Emerald Necklace. Must have been a popular concept back in the day.

Nice Riding Area - Excellent Photography
Beautiful scenery and the best way to take it in - on a Vespa.
You have updated my opinion of Cleveland.

Been seriously tempted to grab a MV and your model and spec is the one I keep going back too every time I go to dreaming.

Love the green and looks even better is natural light!
