Great medicine actually.
A fine foggy morning for a first Vespa ride of 2017. After nearly a month or non-riding living it did the soul well to be moving through the world on two wheels. And the body did not whine or complain for the duration of this short, gentle ride. At 37F the cold isn’t a concern. And more importantly my back didn’t utter a word of concern.
Didn’t go far in terms of miles but it was a big journey in terms of future capacity to spend time on the Vespa. The plan is to inch my way back to more extended time on the road and allow time to build some riding “muscle” again. There’s still a couple more months of potentially frigid and snowy riding that could interfere but hopefully some openings.
Haven’t put the winter tires on the scooter yet nor the Tucano Urbano mitts to keep the icy wind off my hands. Lot’s to do but not feeling much pressure to do anything in a hurry.
