So excited to report that I took my first scooter ride today since October 14, almost 1 month later! Thanks to Urban Moto and Genuine, who shipped it. And to Scoot Richmond and Valerie, who stumbled upon a solution to get Audre home from Richmond, VA. She was dropped off at the front door thanks to Valerie, a wonderful local scooterist. This was my first day off, so we cruised around a little bit. She was shy to start, but woke up quickly after a few minutes on the road. Oh my, it was a good ride, although we didn’t cross any state lines. I did catch myself going 50 through the neighborhood and reluctantly leaned off the throttle. Happy to report that she sounds great and is performing well-even though she hasn’t appreciated the neglect! This weekend I plan on adventuring around the Blue Ridge Mountains. With a big smile and need for speed-I’m happy to say Audre is home!
