Happy Mother’s Day
I end this post by wishing all mother’s a happy Mother’s Day. I hope your day was wonderful and eventful.
Love the beginning.
How far do you generally go on a typical Scooter weekend?
Okay… it would be nigh impossible to top last week’s genius video… but using Billy Idol as the soundtrack comes close!
I’m surprised you didn’t get pulled over? I didn’t think scooters were rated for highway driving?
I love the whole thing but the beginning was my favorite.
ren – Thank you. As for my rides on a typical weekend, I will go about 12 miles. But once the weather warms up to at least the mid 80’s, then I go longer, averaging 30 miles a weekend.
dave2 – I’ve been wanting to use that song since last year. The road I am on (Redwood Rd), it’s so bad. But I cannot go on Bangerter, which I would get pulled over for not going fast enough (if I didn’t run over by the 70+ mph traffic first)
sybil law – Thank you.
tori – Another fan of the beginning. Thank you.
And yet another fan of the beginning, loved that. This was a speedy cruisy episode, and yes that WAS daring! But that probably adds a edgy dimension to the fun. Dry roads and no cars = wow, good times 😀
Already looking forward to next week!
Oooh a bit of Billy is extra cool!
I’m hugely excited by the contest voting – consider it pimped 😉
Loved the choice of soundtrack. Good lord that highway seemed to go on into the distance forever!
catherine – The beginning fan club. Thank you. And as long as the roads are dry, It’s all good.
penelope – Billy rocks! And thanks for playing contest pimp.
kevin – Thank you, sir. And yes… long ass highway (goes for miles in both north and south directions)
WHEEEEEEE! I feel like I’m riding with you!
(and as we discovered in NM, those signs indicating a “speed limit” are clearly mislabeled. They’re more like suggestions than actual limits…)
The beginning was genius.
How far does 1.2 gallons get you?
whall – That’s what that chattering was while I was driving that long road. On the scooter, I’m trying to reach the “suggested” limit.
kapgar – Thank you. I normally get about 105 mpg on the scooter, so broken out into miles per 1.2 gallons (a full tank), I can average about 120 miles per tank. If I rode each day, that would be two weeks worth of gas.
I can’t remember the last time I saw a Sinclair gas station. I think, though, that “Claire” being part of that name (and Sin) being the other part says something positive about the name I suggested for the scooter. (Wasn’t Sinclair the name of the dad in the Dinosaurs TV show back around 1990?)
Once again, sweet video.
delmer – Thank you. Sinclair’s are all over here in Utah and others parts of the west. And before I finished reading your entire comment, I thought about your scooter name submission (doesn’t ‘sin’ and ‘submission’ go together at some point, too).
The Sinclair family was indeed tied to the Dinosaurs TV show.
I was going to ask the same question as Kevin. Damn! That is far on 1.2!
The video worked on my comp! I am sorry I never responded to your emails about it 🙁 I muchos suck.
kilax – Yes, the gas mileage is nice. It was really nice last year when gas was $4 a gal. And no worries on the email replies. I just wanted to make sure you could view the videos now.
