My route from Vespa Queens to the Upper East Side…
The store is like a candy shop, sea foam green and as cute as you’d expect it to be..
.. My chariot ! hahahah. Well I’ve been taking baby steps, besides driving home from the garage yesterday today was an actual drive somewhere, its first road trip (short as it was) and technically second time out of storage. Going across the bridge was my favorite part. The wind rushing by and perfect summer weather as you come up onto a view of the city. Today in particular was excellent weather, the humidity of the past few days lifted. Of course after work I had a friend snap the first EVER picture of me, licensed and ready to go, on my new ride.
When I returned home there was some concern over where to park my bike as they, much like ipods and the like are a target of thieves. I’m just a little paranoid…. luckily my landlord just bought a Honda sport bike 2 weeks ago and is a bike enthusiast so immediately came over and helped me find a spot and lock it up too, right in front of our building.! In the city you cannot park on the sidewalk or you will face a ticket (take your plate off… it helps deter them) but here.. especially since our landlord owns the building, I got a free pass. Thank god I have an amazing landlord. Tomorrow morning its back to Vespa Queens for a top case.. I need more storage !
