It was so nice
Seattle’s I’m So Nice Crew is the largest Asian scooter group in the area. They decided to have a ride Sunday, and invited scooterists of all persuasions to join them. Since the weather was nice, just about all of them did.
The state of Washington operates the largest ferry fleet in the U.S. For those who live on the west side of Puget Sound, the ferries are deeply woven into the fabric of life. They are the quickest way between Seattle and the Kitsap County cities of Bremerton and Bainbridge Island. And on this day, they were on the way to pizza.
Here’s the group from a different angle. Those on two wheels get VIP treatment from Washington State Ferries—you get to jump the queue on the dock; you board first, and are directed to the front of the vessel. The ISN crew made prior arrangements with WSF, and got their own line on the dock. There were 84 bikes on this ride, the pix showing only part of the group. The others followed on a subsequent sailing, which surely prevented a riot by the cagers at the Edmonds ferry dock!
Yes, there were lots of Honda Ruckii, but the diversity of scooters within the group was truly amazing. Riders hailed from places as far away as Hawai’i. Yes, we can all just get along.
Likewise, the diversity of riders was refreshing.
The Kitsap Peninsula offers great roads and lush scenery. It’s a wonderful place to ride. The route took the group to Bremerton, where they boarded a ferry to Seattle. From there, it was on to Georgetown, and pizza at Stellar.
The I’m So Nice Crew is one of many new scooter groups that have sprung up in the Puget Sound area recently. With the new groups come new events, many are one-day rides organized on social media. This phenomenon has not gone unnoticed among the larger, longer-established scooter clubs; while there’s a place for the traditional 3-day scooter rally format, when the weather’s nice, people wanna ride. They now have many, many choices.
