Uber Smooth

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

I rode the Red Fox.

I believe this is her first trip to work in 2014. You will remember I tried once before. It didn't go well. It was the day after I replaced the battery. The solenoid froze open and the starter kept going and going and going. This morning the commute went uber smooth. I did learn this: When I take the Kymco I get to work faster.

Later in the day I checked the lot again.

I was surprised there were only four of us and one bicycle. The weather was near perfect for riding.

Of course, the ride home was the long way.

It took me by this house. I couldn't help but wonder if poodles lived there...or, perhaps the owners are Dr Suess fans.

I passed a father and son out for a ride.

Safety issues aside, if I was that little boy I'd be loving it.

  • 54F/12C with a brilliant blue skies with just enough clouds to keep it friendly for the ride to work.
  • 69F/21C and a few clouds for the homeward meander.


  1. Hey- keep an eye on those shrubs for me. I'm curious if they keep up the trimming!

    1. Martha,
      Will do. I'm curious, too. It looks like a lot of work.

  2. The red fox stands out nicely among the other two wheeled machines.

    The poodle trees are interesting.

    1. The Red Fox certainly doesn't look out of place. She really is a very nice ride. I'm hopeful we have her little problems worked out. We'll see.
