Choose Your Ride

This lively scooter took me by surprise, for I hardly expected to see a Captain Outrageous creation in daily use, sitting by the street.

I suppose enough time has gone by that the death of the artist who styled himself thusly:

...means that his art is largely forgotten in a town with a hugely transient population. Maybe not, one can hope he and his eccentricity are remembered.

I saw this big old cruiser parked and ready to go. I liked the headgear tossed casually on the handlebar

Florida does not require helmet use among adults and even though I usually wear mine I like having the option of riding around town bareheaded.

My Bonneville hasn't put in much of an appearance lately on this page but the love affair continues as strong as ever. I have almost 60,000 miles on my 2007 Triumph.

Trouble free cheerful miles on the few roads, flat and straight of the Florida Keys. Two wheels: the only way to travel around here.
