I was feeling a bit cooped up, and it was beautiful outside. I put on my gear and walked into the garage. Which one to ride? Decisions, decisions.
My Super9 scooter hasn’t been getting much attention lately, so I decided to take it for a ride. It’s a fun little 2-stroke scooter. As Keith already knows, a scooter is great for riding around exploring.
I found this sign on a side street, and made a u-turn to find the construction.
I think most motorcyclists tend to avoid road construction like this, but I like riding on it. They are tore up the entire road curb to curb. It looks like they are rebuilding from scratch.
My super9 has a bit of an identity crisis. It’s marketed as a sporty scooter with “big” tires (12” haha), disc brakes (front and rear), and proper suspension. I took the sport tires off, and put some dual sports on instead (K761s).
They aren’t great in the rain, and they don’t have as much traction as the less knobby tires. They are decent in the dirt and snow however.
I made my way to one of the local lakes. I was surprised to find the beach empty. It was 70F after all.
I found a park bench and sat down to read. The warmth of the sun felt great, and I was really enjoying the silence. Some ducks came by expecting me to feed them. They lined up like they did in New York hoping to impress me.
Unfortunately for them, I didn’t have anything to eat. They swam away, and I went back to my book. It was a nice way to spent a few hours of the afternoon.
