A Short Hop to the Veggie Stand

With my Wife under the weather I couldn't wander too far away so I took a short thirteen mile round trip out to a local Vegetable stand. The architecture is unique for this part of the world and much different from the usual lean-to structures that abound.

The road I used formerly was a highway that connected New York City and Buffalo before it became relocated as an Interstate. It parallels the Interstate in most places. Now a quiet two lane road, it's lightly traveled and perfect for a scooter on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

I set the scooter up in front of the stand and was pleased to see the sunlight cooperated and didn't wash out the shot. Riding home I had to stop at the local supermarket for a few items, which is what the scooter is built for, and was in the garage in less time than I really wanted to be.

I want to take a longer ride in the future and put that in my club page. I have a real good one in mind.

I hope more of you join me on our virtual ride. I could feel you out there beside me.

My Hometown
by: Jim Zeiser

Deposit is off Rt.17 which runs along the NY/Pa border. It was like Rt. 66 in its hayday and many towns have suffered from being bypassed by the big road, Deposit being one of them. So my short ride was like a trip on Rt. 66. Further on is a deli/dry goods store next to a Pizzeria that you can't see from the Interstate. If I had more time the pictures from there would have been even more interesting.

How did you do it?
by: Ron Goldwyn

Just where abouts is your home town? Now you went to the fruit stand to buy fruit then to the super market for additional purchases. So where did you stow your purchases?

Every Ride Is a Good Ride...
by: Kathi

Hi Jim... Sorry to hear about your wife & hoping she feels all better soon. But glad to hear you squeezed in a short ride. The fruit stand is interesting looking, and being a former NYS resident (Rochester area) who has traveled the Thruway many a time, I think I know the frontage road you spoke of (though maybe not in your exact area).

I didn't get my ride in this weekend, but hope to do so sometime this week or next weekend. Looking forward to hearing about your future adventures as well! :)

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
