On Driving a Beamer

The Blonde Smoothie has been after me to post this….so here it is!!!

I was putzing around one Sunday afternoon at The Blonde Smoothie’s house a couple of Sundays ago. Her daughter Sonya is the proud new owner of a Beamer and wanted to show it off as well as practice driving it.

Sonya is a generous young lady and offered me the opportunity to take her Beamer out for a spin.

Heck yeah!!! I will take any opportunity to take a motorized vehicle out for a spin!!

I climb in the driver’s seat, take a moment to familiarize myself with the control placement and take a deep breath. I always am a bit anxious to operate someone else’s vehicle for fear of crashing. I am always concerned about an accident when I get behind the wheel, but more so when it’s someone else’s vehicle.

This is a brand new Beamer so I would be mortified if something happened.

Obviously, I’m not so worried that I won’t take it for a spin so I start the Beamer and off I go for my round the block jaunt.

I can say it was a very different experience! I come to the corner and make my first right hand turn. As required, I use my hand signal and my turn signal. Why The Blonde Smoothie found it funny is beyond me.

Quickly finding my comfort zone, I finish making the block. It was a fun trip.

Oh, here’s the pic of my trip:

Look Ma! No clutch! No footbrake!! Yikes!!

Okay, so it's not the Fatboy....

And here’s one of The Blonde Smoothie on the Beamer as well. I think she forgot I took one!!!

Never turn down an opportunity to ride a new vehicle….even it is a 50cc scooter!!

For the record, the Beamer has been officially named as of yesterday. It seems that the fully qualified naming source has Christened the ride as “Darling”.

Darling it is.

Keep The Shiny Side Up!

You had me worried for a minute there.
Beamers with more than two wheels are an abomination in the eyes of the gods!
