It's nice out there, but that stretch of Two Notch is arguably the worst scootering road in Columbia

Is there a better way to get out there?



(PS--I would block out your license plates, if I were you)

If you haven't already noticed this one,
you can spot the tower on the Columbia skyline



(Yup, I was using the husband's scooter that day)

You are right - Two Notch is certainly not a great road for scooting. I don't really know a much better way, though.

I've thought about blanking out the license tag ... I know many people do ... but I figure I drive around all day, and park, with the tag visible. Maybe I just don't "get" the risk???

Next stop, the WIS tower!

It has been several years since I was on the roof of this building, and it has deteriorated mightily.

Hints available if needed.

Nope, I'm quite familiar with that parking structure

Fortunately, the roof looks better off in the distance

And even more fortunately,
they moved the Farmers' Market there down one level due to the heat

What happend to your throttle cable??? (I know, it broke!) Getting it fixed? Moto Gizmo doing the work?


New tag: (I can only think of one cobbled street in Cola-town.)

Easy one, but I'm out of town

Yup, Moto Gizmo will be fixing it once I've got the cable
(unless I can get things apart and back together
before the husband notices, which isn't too likely)
