Odd man out....

Well, being that it's Friday I decided to join the other folks here in the office for lunch.  As things work out, we had 1 more person than we had 'comfortable seats' in vehicles going to lunch.  Not a slight, it's just math sometimes.  No big deal, I offer to drive myself.  I'm on the Scoot anyway.  I'll just drive myself and get in a ride too.  That's thinkin'.  :-)

Well, after filling my tank yesterday and finding that my mpg had fallen all the way to 56 a good 'blowing out' was in order.  So I geared up and took the I-65 the 4 miles down to the restaurant. 

Nothing like zooming down the interstate.  Sasha (my Burgman) liked it too.

WOO-HOO!!! We got to get the scoots out tonight. 
Rode across town:

Then to one of our favorite little places to go for dinner..  The Frosty Freeze!! 

Every small town has one.  This one is EXCELLENT.  We sat out on the picnic tables and talked over Baby-Burgers and Waffle-Fries!!

Also during this outing, we saw the ever-present friend of Marsha's Scooter "Sallie", the Ninja-Scooter-Pig!!

A good time was had by all.  Tomorrow, I ride to work.  I believe we will have one FULL DAY OF SUNSHINE!!  Woo-Hoo!!

Well crap...

Well, I went to ride my Scoot work Thursday.  I was all excited, had all my gear on, helmet, gloves.  Briefcase stowed....

"Rrrrrr-Rrrrrr-Rrrrrr"....CRAP.... "Rrrrr-Rrrrr-Rrrrrr".  No juice.  We had already had nice long rides this year, we had been over 250 miles.  Dead, just dead.  I guess I was lucky, this was the 4th year on this battery (Note: I'm not usually good on batteries.)  I never put them up for the winter.  I don't put them on a trickle charge.  Yes, I pay a premium for my laziness.

Oh well.  Have the new battery, about to charge it and put it in.

On a much nicer note.  I decided to also charge Stella's battery too since I couldn't get her to start either.  Quickly found the problem.  When your battery cable is tight, all is lovely.

I have a new scooter!! 2005 White Genuine Stella. It's really cool, and SO different from the 'Barcalounger'. Not used to not having a windshield. But wow, it's a whole different experience. Riding Marsha's Elite was different, but wow. You are RIGHT OUT THERE! It's awesome.

Well, I guess that's about all for now. I'll post more soon.
