Well, I've had my head in the sand for a while. Like today... I'm taking one of my turns hosting the co-operative art gallery where I exhibit my work. We (the member artists) take turns tending the gallery, Coastal Arts League Gallery and Museum, in Half Moon Bay, CA.

Rainy weather and a two week bout with something viral has limited my riding this month, but I now have over 500 miles on "Blue Goose II". It isn't as much as I'd hoped for, but it isn't bad for an old coot.

I have become quite friendly with the Chinese family who own the scooter store where I bought my scooter last summer. They asked me to participate in an interview that was being done by a Chinese language newspaper out of San Francisco. That was fun. Of course I never got to see the published article. It was in Chinese so I would have had to have an interpreter.

The scooter I own makes a positive statement about the quality of scooters from China. And the family-run scooter business is of the highest order.

I did send in a "virtual" ride up the California coast last fall and it is in here (somewhere) with photos.

I was kind of hoping to hear from a lot of riders out there about rides in their neighborhoods. They don't have to be anything spectacular, just get to know each other.

Editor's Note: You can Post Your Virtual Rides Here

Wishing all a Happy New Year. Put those battery chargers on your scooters and wait for dry roads.

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.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. 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...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
