No, we weren’t chasing tadpoles in the campground pond with a bar of soap. The “tadpoles” I’m talking about are our two Honda Metropolitan motor scooters.
When we travel, they are carried in the back of our Honda Element toad, so we named them the “Tadpoles”. (Yes I know tadpoles come from frogs, not toads, but bear with us, it’s all in fun). As for the colors, we have one Democrat scooter and one Republican scooter. It reflects our politics, not favoring one political party over another… ;c)
They are just one more way to have fun out on the back roads of America.
When we’re not carrying them with us, they live in a shed we bought at our daughter’s house.
We share the shed with our SIL Brian’s lawn equipment, it’s a win-win situation.
It had been a while since we went “scooting”, so we rode them over to the campground and gave them a good scrubbing. There was still some Quartzsite dust on them from our riding them in the desert a year ago.
It also was the first chance for us to use our collapsible water bucket we bought at Camping World. One of the problems with collapsible buckets is they tend to collapse when you use them and spill all your soapy water out.
This one has a metal brace on each end that folds down, snaps into place and holds the bucket fabric rigid.
When you’re done with the bucket, unsnap the braces and it fold nice and flat, taking up hardly any space. This bucket is a winner as a good product.
Now the scooters are clean and shiny and we’re happy as we tour all the back roads in the area at a blazing 25mph (downhill).
Here’s Motorcycle Marti after a hard day in the saddle.
