Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

It was another lovely day.

I my way to work this morning I was illegally passed by a car. Believe it or not I was going 15mph over the speed limit, but it wasn't fast enough.

On my home, I was just enjoying the ride and traveling at the speed limit in a residential area and was passed again. This time I guess it was legal.

I am grateful the need to be in such a hurry is not a part of my life, very very grateful.

  • 65F/18C  and cloudy for the ride to work.
  • 81F/27C with a few clouds for the home ride.


  1. Keith, I'm always concerned about 'bad' passing and sorry that yesterday you were that passee. 15mph under the limit I understand, 15 over is just wrong.

    I've both seen and felt that on the scooter's when I'm sometimes perceived as being slow even while on the + side of the limit.

    Stay safe.

    1. Coop,
      I've experienced the phenomenon of folks assuming I'm just a slow scooter. I don't get that so much with the Kymco, I think it is because of the bigger tires. Billie is small enough and slow enough not to fool anybody :^)

      Today I rode the Kymco and I think a Harley rider got a bit of a surprise. I'm not going to say anymore. I let you use your imagination and will assure you I was being plenty safe.

  2. I've never understood why people are in such a rush. Just leave a few minutes early.

    One section of my commute is a 25 mph zone through a residential area, blind hills and by a church with a daycare. I get passed illegally through there too when I do the speed limit and just shake my head.

    1. I'm grateful my commute is a recreational activity. My evening starts when I pull out of the lot not when I get home. I'm definitely in no rush for it be over. I think that makes a big difference.
