Only 53 degrees and sunny?
I was in the neighborhood, so I thought I’d swing by Big People and see how the GTS is doing.
As you can see, it’s still waiting for a new throttle body. Where does the part have to come from, I ask Joe. “Italy,” he replies. From there, it’ll go to Atlanta, then here. *Sigh!*
I was secretly hoping the quirk in my cell phone that occasionally results in a call going directly to voice mail, then disappearing into the ether for three or four days, had happened here. No, it’s more likely the part is on a really slow boat, because the Atlanta/Seattle leg is a quick one.
Oh, well. I still have the PX. We’ve been riding around, and have spotted interesting stuff.
This Honda Trail 90 can often be found cruising Alki Avenue on sunny days and evenings. Couldn’t find the owner, however, though he dresses head to toe in matching black leather. Honda sold lots of Trail 90s in these parts, during the heyday of camping/outdoor activity.
This nice P200E was in Bartell Drugs’ parking lot. I don’t recall ever seeing it on California Avenue, but there are lots of shortcuts to the various corners of West Seattle. As you can see, a scooter fits rather nicely into Bartell’s tiny parking lot.
If you pass by the PCC at California and Stevens, you’ll probably see this group of scooters. These riders are hardcore, the scoots parked in the unused spaces no matter what the weather. Well, okay, they didn’t ride during the Snopocalypse.
The rider of the pink Buddy dresses in a head-to-toe pink ensemble. You’ll have no trouble spotting her.
