Friday Parking Spots

If you have a motorcycle or scooter, chances are you rode it yesterday. We've had spring-like weather, although spring weather here is still rainy. This was in the motorcycle parking area at a southwest hospital. All Harleys were out and shiny.
When I got to my usual spot at the mall (field office), the coral was full so I took the spot next to it to give other riders some more space.
Beside the BMW 800ST there was this cutie - a Triumph Daytona Triple. This one always gets my attention when it's here. I like the styling.
This Yamaha FZ6 is almost always here. This guy works in one of the department stores.
And then there was this little sweetheart. Somebody help me here - I didn't see an emblem identifying it anywhere. Still made by Piaggio this one looks like a classic.

Nice chrome and paint for an older skoot.
Finally, this wasn't a parking spot but rather it's a building I pass by every Friday afternoon. It's in the little town of Scholls. I've been wanting to stop and compose some sort of photo. Not sure why it has two speakers and why they're mounted over each big door. It would seem that one speaker would be enough for this little town.
 Life's little discoveries are a little sweeter on two wheels.


  1. I didn't ride Friday or Saturday. How wrong is that? I seem to be allegic to riding in the sunshine. Ah well, I hope to make up for it on Sunday and maybe get a parking lot photo somewhere along the way! :)

    Love the shot in Scholls - great setting. It's funny how these old buildings make great backdrops for all types of bikes from the old classics to modern. Do you know what the building was for originally?

  2. I don't know what the building was but have the feeling it might have been an auto repair shop. I'm not sure if there are enough people and cars around to support it though.

    I hope you were able to ride today - yet another beautiful day!
    Thanks Kari...

  3. Your last statement sums it up perfectly - it is sweet to be on a bike! Loved seeing the variety of scoots out there.

  4. It's possible that the speakers are for an alarm system. If a little loud is good, a lot loud is best!
