I went out for a ride today to meet my buddy for lunch.
On the way back home, on a busy side street, I see an old guy on a tiny scooter, riding on the far right hand side of the lane.
All the cars are trying to get around him.
He stops at a red light and I pull up beside him.
I mean, his little scooter is the size of my gas tank.
People in other cars are yelling things at us and laughing.
He looks at me and says "I wish I still had my motorcycle license, but they took it away from me because I owed them a lot of money".
I said "Hey, riding is riding... 2 wheels is 2 wheels".
He said "Well thank you very much".
The light turned green and I wished him a great day.
It doesn't matter what you ride, enjoy it and have fun.

Curious to know what they were yelling and laughing about. Hopefully nothing demeaning.

And you never even challenged the guy to a race?? LOL

I've always wanted a motorcycle. In 2010 we vacationed in Panama City, Fl. and right across the street there was a scooter rental place. It was hot that day but I rode that sucker all over the place. Had a blast!
I was a little sad that it would only do a hunnerd mph though... LOL!
Seemed like it anyway! :ltr:

That was it! I bought my first my bike when I got home.

That is a VERY good thing you did maybe there's hope after all.

WHAT....!!!! The old guy was holding up traffic, drivers had to "get a around him" Noooooo!
I'm surprised no one on this forum has said they wanted to kick his mirror off or pull their gun on the guy. I'm glad you took the high road with him Paul...... :ltr:
