After spending the morning checking out the Bike Show at the Javits Center in New York City, we hit the bricks. We walked downtown to enjoy the beautiful day. As we sauntered along we started to catch a glimpse of something low and very orange through the throng of people around Prince St. and Broadway. As we got closer, the Tesla Roadster Sport made itself plain to us. It was a beautiful, silent spectacle. Dare I say it was… electrifying? No. You’re right. I’d better not.

We spotted this lovely little Honda CB350 while we were in Maine last summer. It appears to be stock save for the windshield and highway bars. What a great looking bike. It just makes me want to go for a ride, 70’s style.
I can see it now – Me, putting on my best pair of Earth Shoes and hitting the road on a groovy adventure. I have big dreams of listening to 8-tracks, making Jiffy Pop and eating fondue from here to San Francisco. “Breaker, breaker this is Motorcycle Mama, come back. How am I hitting you? Wall to wall and treetop tall? Watch your donkey, good buddy. We got us a Kojack with a Kodak hiding in the grass.”
It just feels good. Doesn’t it?
This post is nothing without you: Bring it back, now. Do you copy?

I spotted this adorable little Yamaha LB50 Chappy parked in Newport, Rhode Island this past weekend. The more I thought about it, it really seemed like the perfect urban go-getter. It is easily able to park in tight spaces, has enough space to bungee a bag of stuff from the 7-11 to it, it beats the heck out of walking and well most importantly… it’s cute!
It’s a Chick Magnet
Girls like cute things: Puppies, Babies and Chappies. Can you see it now? “Awww, look how cute that moped is!” says the gaggle of squealing girls walking by as you coolly un-bungee your bag of bagels. With a flash of your winsome smile their panties will practically be jumping off!
Don’t say I never did you any favors.
