On top of everything else I've done to reduce my carbon footprint and decrease my cost of living, I got rid of my minivan & now I ride a scooter! I've been riding it for a few months now, and I just had some body work done to change her from a nice silver with a brown leather seat to a GORGEOUS girly pink with a black cloth seat. This was taken yesterday: Riding has become not only my primary mode of transportation but also a really fun hobby. She has a trunk that sits on the back rack (not on the bike yet in the picture), and it's very roomy. You would be surprise how much stuff I can carry home from the feed store in the back of that thing! Hubby has a scoot, too. Anyway, just wanted to share. Ciao (LOL).
