Scoot Commute

NERCOMP 2014 is ovah!

Posted in Daily Commute, Honda Elite 250 CH250 (1986) by sbahn on 2014/03/26

I spent this Tuesday and Wednesday at the annual NERCOMP conference, conveniently located at the Providence Convention Center. I rode the Honda Elite both days, parking it safely next to Trinity Brewhouse.

This morning greeted me with gale-force winds. I really should have switched out scoots so I could have taken the Buddy (which doesn’t have a windscreen), but I labored down Broad Street to the convention center on the Elite with his GIANT windscreen.

Truly an amazing ride as I couldn’t predict when the gusts would strike from side streets or between buildings. At one point I used a RIPTA bus to block the wind at the cemetery. Thankfully there was only once when I got blown so hard to the left that I touched the center line. There was a lot of brake covering and shifting of my body weight.

Oh, and the conference presentation I did with two of my colleagues went really well (if I do say so myself).
