    The most awesome thing happened today!

    So like I was riding my scooter (Honda Ruckus) along the street at about 35 mph. I looked down at the speedometer and then looked up to find I was veering straight into the divider! Well there were a bunch of tumble weeds over there and I found myself imitating them in a tumbleweed-like manner. It was awesome, I almost felt like I belonged somewhere in the community of tumbleweeds.

    They must lead an awesome life rolling about here and there at the whim of the wind.

    Well on the negative side I got two banged up knees and a banged up elbow. I'm sure I'll be hurting later on when all my bruises set. Also my poor honda got banged up but then it's a honda so it still runs fine

    There's nothing like a few life experiences now and then and to be able to say "been there, done that"

    I did that once when I first started riding. Only looked down for a few secs and veered right into a curb. Ouch.
