Scooting in the Times


Mexican Matt looking happy as the ladies pile on.

Presley sent me an article in the Sunday New York Times about scooting: Cheap, Chic and Sociable: The Buzz About Scooters. I give the journalist a lot of cred for accurately capturing the community, (at least in nyc). I especially found this passage funny:

Scooter owners will tell you that drivers on four wheels are clumsy and often disrespectful. “They park by feel in New York City,” said Peter Lutjen, a book cover designer. “They back up until they bump into something, and if they bump into a scooter, it’s going down. So your option is, get knocked down on a regular basis, or park on the sidewalk and risk being ticketed.”

no kidding…

We’re planning on heading down for the Rhode Island Rally this weekend, (though I need to change my front brake cable, and find a truck to borrow). Last year was a lot of fun — photos here.
