I met up with a Honda Elite scooter (a snail !) on the road this evening.
I rounded a large corner on the road and up ahead somebody on a ped or scooter .. (too far ahead.. I couldn't tell) ..pulled out and was headed the same direction... I was at top speed and closed up on'em fast as they stopped for a light... as I get closer.. I see a long blonde pony tail... (hmmm maybe its a cute girl ! )... they turn R at the light... and head up a light hill... I can see its a scooter now... I turn the corner and began closing up the hill ... (hmmm this thing isn't too fast)... then at the top of the hill I hit my top speed and roll past... awww.. its a guy... shit .. then I leave him behind as we head downhill a bit...
I should have slowed and checked out his ride... so now I pull over and let him catch up and look it over as he goes past... Its a Honda Elite... In good condition.. I follow to check his top speed and he can only do 25mph... something must be wrong with it... then his cooler on the back slips sideways and is hanging off the side... I pull up to him at the next light and point out the cooler and ask him how old the Elite is... "Its new... well.. I got it last year".
I think he was drinking .. he acted kind of slow-brained.
Being a fairly new scooter... I was surprised it was so slow.
Its always fun to be faster.
