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.
