It was a beautiful day, warm and sunny, dry roads, so Mike and I rode down to Biddeford, then back up through Old Orchard Beach. So inviting was that marvelous seven-mile-long stretch of golden sand that I decided that riding right on down to the sea was a really good idea.
Mike examined the situation with a straight face - for about 30 seconds. If laughter is the best medicine, Mike won't be sick for a decade, so great was his giggle fit.
It took the two of us about 10 minutes to wiggle, jiggle, lift and coax the Vespa to safety
I'm sure this will a funny to me as it was to Mike, and to Kathy, one day. I'll let you know.
