Interlude: It's a Scooter Nation!

Honda Metropolitan

This is my scooter.  It's a 2006 Honda Metropolitan. I've had her since 2008.  Scooters seem to be looked down on here in the states.  I don't get it.  This thing makes me have a permanent grin on my face every time I ride her around town, or back and forth to the studio, etc.  She gets 100 miles to the gallon.  It costs me about 20 bucks to run it from mid-April to late October, sometimes November every year.  20 bucks!  Permanent grins!  So much fun!  There are days when I'll just hop on this with a camera, and just ride around and take pictures.  Seeing this part of the state at 40mph.

Some days I think I was supposed to be born in a place like Italy, where scooters are commonly adopted and used.
