My Little Met


I took a little spin yesterday out in the country on my "new" little Honda Met. What a joy, what a gift! To ride again is sweet!

Here she is last Tuesday, parked at Mt. Moriah Cemetery on the way home from the Honda dealership...


It's a pretty place with a lake, waterfall, fountain, and ducks. I saw a heron fly overhead as I pulled up beside the lake...


Once I got her home I spent a good bit of time adding bling and so forth, of course. But then we had days of horrid, hot, humidity and then rain, rain, rain.

So the first time I really got to ride her out into the back roads was yesterday on a favorite rural loop.

Immediately I was eyed by curious by-standers, peeking through the fence at me...


Not too far along I parked alongside a rushing creek and hit the kill switch and just sat and listened to the sound of the water bubbling over the rocks...


The road ahead. I believe in being seen, so Breezy sports a bicycle hi-viz reflective triangle on the back of her Saddlemen roll bag, with no apologies for geekiness...


From the front you can see my "Crazy Critters" marketing motif...my new pet sitting business. My little 2002 Denim Met is part of my business presence in the neighborhood surrounding these back roads...


Up by the old cabin is a pond that today was algae covered. The cabin is on the right...



Looking back at Breezy, waiting to leave the pond and cabin area...


She is named for my sweet "Breezy", who crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on June 29th...


On to Veterans Park in Union Township. Here is a nice lake with a cheery fountain and LOTS of duck and geese friends...






Ready to head home. She came to me with 727 miles on her and we just added another 30 or so.

Such a sweet ride and such a wonderful gift made possible by the generosity of a fellow blogger. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My little Met, Breezy. This scoot is LOVED!

  1. How cool the you brought her home and got out for a lovely ride. I love the blue and white, not that I am partial to that color scheme.

    Happy riding.

  2. Not a bad looking scoot. May you and Breezy have miles and miles of good times. And who ever that blogger was that helped you out, well they earned their spot in biker heaven as far as I'm concerned.

  3. Excellent ride. Classic good looks and perfectly functional. I've never understood the Ruckus but the Metropolitan makes perfect sense to me.

    1. Like they say, the Met is a Ruckus dressed up to go out. I appreciate so many little things on the Met that the Ruckus does not have: gas gauge, leg shield, front basket, rear rack hanger, locking center stand, locking seat compartment. Better for the burbs where you are doing grocery runs, etc.
      I can't help but think that I will have another Ruckus too at some point. After all, it's "Ruckus Scooter Love" that drives my passion! LOL

    1. When you're doing 40 mph max, ya wanna be seen! Plus a hi-viz jacket and vest. I used to fly a flag but have no way to attach it until I get a rear rack for the Met. Stayin' alive is a good thing! LOL
