You Meet The Nicest People On A.....

A couple weeks ago, Jerry and I did a lake Chabot ride on Sunday after church. The ride itself was pretty uneventful and totally enjoyable.

After the ride though, we met a couple of guys in the parking lot as they were getting ready to leave. Stepping way out of my comfort zone (I’m terribly shy you know) I struck up a conversation with the gentleman who it turns out used to be a cyclist but now rides a scooter.

Evidently he used to ride several (20+) centuries per year with various local riding groups but now he just tools around on his scooter. The really interesting part is that he doesn’t ride alone. He has a good friend Rusty that rides with him in a special pack.

Rusty you see is a Chihuahua and not only does he ride in a special pack, he also has goggles and a helmet with his name on it. Together it sounds like they’ve been all over the place on that little scooter.

It’s true, you do meet the nicest people on a Honda Scooter
