Still here, sort of
I'm riding in my car today and while stopped at a light two riders pull up, one on a BMW and the other on a VRSCA. The V rider lifted the flip-up to speak with the other rider and to my delight I saw a well-seasoned female citizen with an enormous smile on her face. The gent on the BMW looked just as happy. I asked how she liked her ride and she raised an enthusiastic thumbs-up and told me that it was very smooth and that she loved it. Just before they rode off the man added that it was a beautiful ride.
