The past week I’ve been wandering. Sometimes with purpose. Other times aimlessly. Each ride has been an exercise in following a whim, a feeling, going where ever the current takes me. Riding a Vespa scooter certainly makes it easy to embrace that sort of thing.
As many of you know, summer is not my favorite time to ride. Sunny days just look sort of plain. Boring. And they’re often hot. Mileage drops this time of year along with my posting frequency.
The Vespa scooter doesn’t shrink from sunshine or heat and would be happy to pound on down the road for weeks, months and years. Wandering around the rural roads near home, I realize my mind wanders as well.
All part of everyday exploring on the Vespa.
Since I retired people assume I’m riding more. I have, though not the big trips many imagine. Despite the signs on the road suggesting I get on the scooter and head out for a ride, I’ve been spending more time reading and writing.
The rides will come.
Like I often do, I find myself riding down gravel roads. The Vespa takes them on like a champ, but lately, I find myself looking at dual sport motorcycles and wondering…
Sat on a BMW G650GS today at Kissell Motorsports along with an BMW F800 GS Adventure. The picture would look a little different. The riding experience would change.
Anyways, still kicking here in the sticks.
