I’m taking my scooter on her maiden voyage on real roads tomorrow. The speedometer/odometer cables need to fixed (knowing how fast and far you’re going is *really* helpful…) and the shop is next to my work. What better way to get it there than to ride it? I will be wearing my husband’s mother’s leather jacket for warmth and confidence. Wish me luck.
Meet Henrietta. My new and absolutely lovely bicycle.
She and I went for our first real ride yesterday. We went to the Shoppe (by way of a slightly long detour). She is a simple cruiser. (A Fuji Bike Sanibel DX if you want to be technical. I purchased her from Marty’s.) No gears, foot brakes, and a nice big squooshy seat. I love the custom black fenders and basket she came with.
And I’d just like to say one more thing… She totally kicked my ass on this first ride.
