Ok this wasn't an epic journey but it was my wife's first time out on her Buddy170i and just another day on my SportCity 250 ie. I just realized is my SportCity really 11 years old?! Man I'm getting old!!

We took the scoots out to run some errands today.

You can read more about our ride here if you want. It's mundane but hey. https://velobuff.com/2019/05/12/scooting/

Nice blog post and thanks for sharing. A scooter is a great way to run errands but the downside is that I find it takes longer as I usually don't want to go home straight away and find numerous detours.

Great report/photos. Looks like perfect weather and a glass of light red to end the day. Doesn't get much better than than that.

Thanks. I'm currently reading this girls epic ride on ADV Forums and she puts most of my scooting days to shame

I tried and told me that intersection is a state highway so my town couldn't do anything about it and to call the state of Colorado
