The workday is shorter and more enjoyable every time it starts and ends with a ride instead of a drive.

Show your scooter waiting for you to finish work...

I have two jobs now, but the scene of my Vespa waiting for me at work is really not much different at either.

Out front at one job, usually the bikes park just on the pavement in front of where I am, but I sunk, so I use the concrete now.

Not a Vespa - But my BV 500 at work, with just one of the many, many trucks I have to deal with on my commute... this photo is sooo appropriate!

I park mine by the bicycle racks with a roof overhead. So far no one has complained, though the one guy who does ride his bike to work often chided me for not bicycling instead. (He knows that I ride a lot for exercise.) But I'd probably never be on time to work if I did.

Since there are very few riders where I work the boss let's us park undercover at the side entrance. Awfully nice of him. Now if I can just get that raise he promised.
Got it made in the shade.

Does anyone else notice that scoots, unlike automobiles, trucks, or even motorcycles, look like they are waiting for their owners to return?

Like a loyal dog.

(I've read posts on MV about scooter owners a bit annoyed that people pet or touch or even sit on their bike while parked.)

The more I see that gorgeous girl with her LV Vintage pipe, the more I want one for my own! My stock exhaust is starting to look awfully discolored and ugly lately... and we all know the black BBQ paint is only a temporary fix... 8)

That's actually referring to the street immediately behind the scooter. I could post a pic of the sign referring to the bike rack area if anyone would like to see it...

Here is my spot for the past couple of days - usually i park undercover in the public car park at beyond the fence line but it's uneven ground on the footpath to get into our yard - since i've been starting early this week, i'd rather park in the light

Well, here's mine, parked outside in the street. Many London boroughs allow motorbike parking in their "pay and display" bays, free of charge and I'm virtually always able to park right at the end of this bay, protected to some extent by the paving...

Oh, if it uploads OK, it's a "stereo pair" so anyone that can get their left eye to look at the left image and right eye to look at the right image can see it in 3D...

I have the same "problem," Richard. My shop is in the basement, and my scooters don't do stairs too well.

On the bright side, I guess you could say our scooters are always at work unless we take them elsewhere. Clown emoticon
