I have tried really hard to come up with some clever name and keep drawing a blank. I was never one to name my bike anyway but it would be cool to say I have a "Pink something or other". Everything I come up with just sounds funky...but what do you expect with PINK?

I'm already up to 50 miles! This having to go slow thing is killing me so I need to get that engine broken in quickly. The matte black color is growing on me as well so I'll ride it as is for a little while (at least til it gets above 32 degrees and we can start swapping pink for black panels). It will be nice to know I have color options if I ever want to.

Now I am off to get some Tags!

I also sent an email

When I turned in my pink bike to Metro, I included a photo album with 100 pictures ranging from several Benefit/charity rides with the "big boys", to a trip to Skyline Drive, Deal's Gap, several scooter rallies and even the 2009 LocalRiders BBQ! I also thought to include an issue of the June, 2009 Road Wheeler Magazine with my article. If they were taking my ride from me, they were gonna' have to show it with my mug! I already had a story on Genuine's website press page last year that I really enjoyed writing. It's been fun, to say the least, but still not anything that I felt deserving of a new scooter.

I bet Philip is amazed at your emails. My husband says that's what makes this Forum different than others in the 2-wheeled world: folks on here tend to have camaraderie throughout the year, you aren't set on riding one particular brand of bike, you appreciate the efforts of others and you actually RIDE your bikes. I am sure these things are what drew me to this site in the first place! Cheers to all of you!

You got that right! Just as a side note, I am hoping to kick-start(no pun) a rocker movement in the next few months. I am looking forward to attending the WKRP Meet again this year on something with historical plates.

Down at The Dragon

I wasn't sure if Ben had posted this anywhere on here ore not. The reason I have to change my bike to pink is because pink is faster than black:

That is great Angie.
Nice to read a "feel good" story. I hope you have as many great adventures on this one as you had on the last one. I look forward to reading about it.
Congratulations.

Jay Leno's Garage

Just watched the video on today's Garage show and have to say it pretty much peed me off

For being a scooter shop owner, Mike was clueless. I love the part about only being a commuter bike as well as "only expect 10-12,000 miles out of it".

Of course Jay makes as much fun of it as possible.

I think my reaction is pretty normal considering no one likes to see their bike misrepresented.

(Yes, Tom, whining again...cry).

My bad...actually it now says "200 miles and counting". That's how many miles I have on my new scooter. Man, I hate they took the old one. I am sure I could have gotten another zillion miles out of that engine.
