No, not quite an extraterrestrial, but quite alien to the city of Windsor nonetheless. It is my scooter! A personally restored 1986 Yamaha XC125-S Riva. I apologize for the sharply angled picture above; apart from being artistic, it serves to save the full unveiling for a nice warm day when the sun is out and willing to present the scooter in all its glory.

I have previously written about how I found the scooter and the restoration process, but I just wanted to make an entry stating the the entire restoration is complete and I am a fully insured motorcycle owner with a beginners M license as of yesterday. Weather permitting, I will be riding it to university and work today and I have been smiling nonstop for approximately thirteen hours now, the glee is oozing from me.

  1. I like the picture!

  2. Very cool dude! I wanna get a Vespa or something one of these days maybe. I'm sure it's gonna be a good time for ya today.

  3. Thank you for the comments. I rode it to the University that day, incredibly, fun! Although I did suffer some frost bite as it was -6C without the windchill. I couldn't resist.
