Saturday Special: A Moped's Journey

I think the first picture I took specifically for my blog was when I sold this moped.  A 1980 Puch Magnum and a great, solid bike.  When I got it, it was sitting in a barn for at least a decade and I had to do a decent amount of dust cleaning and polishing.  I moved on and sold it to a fellow mopeder for a decent price... Well it is back on the selling block again in Oregon.  Most of the mopeds in the 70's and 80's were in the Midwest so mopeds are harder to come by on the west coast and it is selling for a decent amount more out there... And additionally it does have more performance parts than when I sold it.  Anyway, just thought I would share the life of this moped because after it is sold... I may never be able to keep tabs on it again.

Sunday looks just as hot with highs in the 90's for Ohio.  Rain will move in Monday and leave early Tuesday.  Scattered showers and storms, but right now, not looking severe.  We dry out with highs in the lower 80's for the middle of the week, then things get interesting.  Tropical Storm Isaac is churning in the Caribbean Sea and will ride up the Western Side of Florida early this week.  A handful of the forecast models are showing the storm staying west enough that it will ride the west side of the Appalachian Mountains and bring rain to the Midwest for Friday and into the weekend.  The next few days will be interesting to watch on the forecast maps to show if the energy gets wiped east with the cold front we will be seeing early in the week.  Stay tuned.

I guess my hint yesterday with "Buck" was a little inaccurate... I will explain later this week.  My hint for today... hmmm.... High Definition.  Have a good one!
