Wink Boldly going nowhere - a mini weebeastie adventure.

boldly going nowhere

Home alone for the evening so I thought I would take the scooter to the coast, nothing like a good honest burn WOT along the pacific coast highway right plus it was going to turn 1000 miles since I got it not too long ago, and why waste that clock cycle on a commute!

The beastie of choice this evening.


The mountains look clear, should be nice weather!


Adding a second story? Folks in woodside, ca have a lot of money!


OK this is better, tiny bit of local traffic out of the way and I needed my momentum for the hill!


come on my 125 little CC's


Darn almost made it all the way to the top, when traffic hit!


Not a bike in sight at alices today


I got twists to take care of!


bit of video, left handed so sorry for the shake but twists and one hand riding is an art?




Pulled over for the 1000 shot


Not a bad place to do it either


More traffic! Not bad in the straight aways as they leave me in the dust but annoying in the twists as I could faster


Coast getting nearer! Not quiet the weather I wanted but the cool air felt good. Vents open!


Small break to grab a drink and a snack at my fav store before reaching the coast


small jam session going on tonight


Pretty much summed up the trip!


some cool local traffic



My secret hide out spot for a great view of the coast when clear and never anyone there


the sitting reflecting shot


the weebeastie


long since abandoned road to the coast


snacked up and off again, kinda nice not being able to break the speed limit


into half moon bay



This was the part I was concerned about, super fast uphill sweepers and a tiny 125 scooter, luckily not much traffic and they all just woodshed by me.


at the top!


doesn't look like a reasonable place to park if you ask me.


The dwarf and the beastie


nice view!


the ride down was excellent, no cars and the lines just seemed to call my name.


looks like the local drink pond is full for once!


OK, maybe I can break the speed limit on occasion, wind on my back downhill etc….


slowly made my way back into town, well almost. Lots of horse folk around these parts.


Lots of taco trucks near my local parts


last stretch home


60 miles - 80miles to the gallon on fuel and an amazing 61.7mpg top speed

Most excellent adventure! And the pix were great too.

My 50cc Zuma only gets out about twice a year. I need to use it more 'cause it is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. I keep forgetting.
Thanks.

it actually has a bike mount on it, but I keep the rubber band on just in case, the shocks can be likened to a steel rod attached concrete block

I am going with above, since I have yet to mount a milk crate

Enjoyed your ride report.

Really loved the video. Looks like you was moving pretty good through the twisties.

Thanks, bit slower than normal even since it was one handed
I need to order the camera ram mount plate so I can go down it with both hands on the controls!
