Life on two wheels?

So far this year, it's been more about "Life on two feet".  I signed up for the Get Lucky again this year, and spent January through March running to get ready.  Most of my runs were indoor at the community center's track (11 laps = 1 mile) due to the prolonged and miserable spring weather we have had here in Minnesota.  Side note:  there's actually snow in the forecast for later this week.  In May, people.  But enough of that.

I'm still running and last week unofficially started my marathon training program.  Not that I have committed to doing a marathon, mind you.  But the wench signed up for the TC Marathon on the day of the Boston bombings, and I'll admit it's more than crossed my mind to do the same.  The only problem is that the longest I've ever run in my life is the 7k of Get Lucky.  So for now I'm following the plan and contemplating my options.

My two wheeling life has taken a bit of a turn.  Exhibit A:
It's a 1985 Honda Elite 150 I picked up in December.  It's an ugly little spud, but it's also super fun.  I haven't had a chance to do a lot of riding on it yet (see above crappy spring weather reference), but what I have done has been a hoot.

Fun little scooters! I have a 1984 CH-125 in red. Plan to hop it up with a 150cc motor transplant...one of these days.

You got it, Aaron. This is the CH-150D. The D stands for "Deluxe".

I haven't hopped it up, but I have hit 60mph on it. Downhill and WOT, but still...
