Thumbs Up Birthday Ride/Boy's first scoot ride

Well yesterday was my birthday and it was a nice enough day that a scoot ride for no reason was in order. I had thought of taking a long ride but decided instead to take my second son with me on a shorter ride so we took a short (50 mile round trip) ride out to Echo Canyon near Ghost Ranch New Mexico.
Here is the boy ready to ride. When I took this first picture he said "I think you should post this on Scooter Dawg since this is my first ride." It wasn't all that cold but he said the wind made his face tingly...


***OFFICIAL DISCLAIMER***
***WARNING***
If you aren't from Northern NM The following pictures may result in extreme envy and discomfort with you current geography. The excessive beauty released by these photos may unsettle you and give you strong urges to move to where such views are less than a half hour from your house... END PSA
Ok I won't say much the pictures take care of most of it...

Stupid hay truck seriously 30 in a 55 zone...










Echo Canyon







Stopped at the local grocery store "Bode's" (that's bodees for you non New Mexicans) for a soda and had a pic taken then home we went

Well hope you all enjoy!

Hi

Ill admit your scoot is growing on me. I usually dont like the style/look of anything above 150cc but yours is really sharp. The color may have a lot to do with it oh and also it being a SUZUKI

Cool pics!!

I like most Suzukis and yes the Burgman is cool looking. I rode a GS1100 for years and I like the way it looks but the scoot is just a well made machine in every way. Thanks glad you enjoyed the pics I know I enjoyed the ride

Ooops.. fixed. Didn't have this forum added to the list to be shown in the side column since I added this forum just recently.

Sorry 'bout that.
