My own private motorcycle show, part deux
Though I found this year’s Seattle Motorcycle Show a big disappointment, it nevertheless offered an opportunity to meet with motorcycle blogger friends.
I’d met Bobskoot (Riding the Wet Coast) several years ago. It was my first time meeting Troubadour (Troubadour on a Tiger), Trobairitz (Trobairitz’ Tablet) and SonjaM (The (re-)discovery of motorcycle riding).
Bobskoot tries the Triumph Tiger 1050 on for size. Troubadour rides a Tiger 800. SonjaM has a Harley Sportster and a GTS. Of the group, I’m the only one who rolls exclusively on a scooter, a situation I see continuing for the foreseeable future.
Having seen all there was to see, we walked a block east to Cyber Dogs for lunch. As you can see, an eclectic decor compliments an eclectic menu of vegetarian and vegan sausages.
I went for the Chicago Dog. Which was nominally a bratwurst, except it was meatless. It was rather good.
Everyone else enjoyed their lunch, too. That’s Mrs. Skoot on Bobskoot’s left.
Our bellies full, I bid my friends adieu so as to arrive back in Bellingham before dark. There’s talk of a scooter/motorcycle bloggers’ convention in 2012. I hope it’s not too far away.
