I work from home and when I went to the kitchen for lunch, I noticed the thermometer was indicating 63 deg, looked out and it was a decent day. So as I was having lunch, I ran thru a risk analysis of going for a ride. Considerations were: digging out all the riding gear, assessing road conditions (wet, sand, potholes, etc), drivers not being aware of riders yet, etc. I concluded I had no choice but to go for a ride. I picked a route that I know is less traveled and decided to pretend the 150cc was a 50cc and I was limited to 35-40 mph, which is the speed on that road anyhow.
Put air in tires, checked oil, lights, etc and off I went. Once I got thru some light traffic getting to the road, the cars disappeared. I pulled over once to let some one by who appeared to be in a hurry, which I was not.
It felt so good to be on two wheels, feeling the wind, breathing the air, looking at everything from the perspective of being not in an enclosed environment.
In the words of the Eagles, I settled into a "peaceful, easy feeling". It felt like my scooter had become my emotional battery charger after a long winter!
And knowing the philosophy of this forum, here are some pics!
