Evening Moped Ride

Well for the first time I blasted my moped around downtown Dayton. I have always rode around Dayton, but I felt that in order to really enjoy, the first time, it I needed others to help turn heads. Shawn, Wes, and I finished trying to work on Shawn's Tomos...pain in the rear, and we went out for an evening ride since it will likely be the only dry day between 12 other wet days. We rode up and down Oregon District and got shouts and fist pumps, and then rode around the Dragon's Game at Fifth Third Field. We stopped at Deeds Park for a quick photo...(love the skyline from that angle and time of day)... and then we proceeded back home through downtown. Shawn's moped was loosing bottom end, so I had to assist him by putting my hand on his back and pushing him up hills. I was even able to push him up the huge hill on Dorthy Lane... who ever told me to gear higher and get a different pipe!?!?! Haha. I still wish I was more in line for top speed, but I love my low end with my set-up. Wes and I got lost from Kettering to West Carrollton because we wanted to ride the back housing areas rather than the main streets... We got all turned around and then eventually got back onto Stroop. We also found a permanently fixed MPH radar gun next to a community park... by the time I saw it I wouldn't have time to get to full speed, but I still got 37 up a little hill. Two thumbs up! I got home and Dawn had finished packing(heading back to Cleveland Friday to get her wedding dress altered) and we watched The Office. No where near as funny now that Steve Carell has left.

Well the rainy days have returned, only a shower or storm here or there the next week or so. There is a small chance every day, but there may be a day or two where someone else will see the rain, but you will remain dry. Monday looks to be the best chance for dry weather... isn't it weird how we now forecast the dry days..haha. We will start to warm up and by the middle of next week, we will see our first humid week of the year. Have a good one!
