Found myself not necessarily needing a coffee , plenty of that at home but was such a beautiful day for a ride around the island to get an unnecessary coffee , tomorrow I think I will have an unnecessary trip to publix and perhaps the day after an uneccesary trip to the hardware store .

Looks like someone else needs coffee too. (Is yours the red or the white one?) Have fun!

Now that Christmas is over I need a few unnecessary trips. It was bonkers before Sunday and no time to ride. Most of what I bought would not fit on the rack and/or pet carrier

I think that's an even better reason for an "unnecessary coffee", a ride with the girlfriend......

My Vespa experiences are predicated on the unnecessary ride. While I do commute to work with it, those rides can't hold a candle to the unnecessary ones -- coffee or otherwise.

I'm grateful that I can find some childlike excitement in doing unnecessary things at my advancing age...

By the way, those scooters look beautiful.

I can do one better than that, last week I went from Naples up to Sanibel Island for lunch on my GT200. Unnecessary of course, I had food in the frig, and pasted dozens of places on the way that I could have stopped for lunch. A nice 125 mile ride. As soon as I get a windshield I'm going for a really ridiculously unnecessary ride. I'm going to ride down to the Lorelei on Islamorada in the middle keys for lunch and then back in one day.

The unnecessary rides are the rides to work as they are prematurely truncated. Necessary are the rides to anywhere for the sheer joy of scooting.

Very nice. Have to start 'em up anyhow, so might as well let the bike enjoy it's time too! Looks like some gorgeous weather for you.

I am taking an unnecessary ride tomorrow, New Years Day, to have brunch with two friends. 125 miles each way. Hopefully, I can get home by 1:30 for the family's traditional Southern New Year's meal of collard greens, hog jowl, black eye peas, etc.
