Rain is due after sun-up.
But finally one "possible" day, after 5 weeks of impossible weather, so I geared up and jumped on the the 7yr old LIKE200iLX at 0'Dark:30 ....and headed off into what might have been Pea Soup - except it was too dark to see it.

My wife standing at the door, shaking her head sadly, as her nut-job husband disappeared quickly into the heaviest fog and dark.

The Liberty has that wonderful 55W fog boring headlight - but the LIKE has the lighted top case, the winking rear fog&rain light and trusted wet weather Michelins!


My winter riding gear is also water proof - and a fog like this will soak you in short order. Also is great fun on & in the face shield. (some day I'll install the PinLock !) 1 mile down the road I gave up and opened the face shield for the remainder.


Cruised at about 26MPH in the black fog....coming home in the grey fog averaged @ 31mph. I know my route to my coffee village - so this was safe.






Just beat the heavy rain coming home.



Knocked on my daughter's bedroom door, "Your Hells Angel father is home!"
"Dad, you ride a scooter - quit exaggerating!"

Those photos look eerily beautiful. I love it.

Have you got a reserved parking spot and table at that place?

Well spotted!
Actually, I find that when I arrive before sun rise I have little trouble getting my primo parking spot, with table and chairs (which I purchased at Walmart to replace the broken ones)
BTW - recently learned that Dave Chappelle owns the building behind me.




And, it is only a short walk across the street for Dinos coffee. He opens at 6:45AM.

Put in the Pinlock.
You'll wonder why you waited.
