Introducing: Rocinante

Named for the re-named Martian corvette featured in The Expanse, she's no broken-down horse. A 2013 Honda PCX150, she is missing the backrest (such as it is), and has a couple of scrapes from being dropped (not my doing), but she's mine, and she runs like a scalded ape.

Wintertime is the time to buy bargain scooters, I tell ya.

... gear upgrades. Need a 3/4 helmet with a hinged faceshield, ala Fulmer AF-655 (my go-to from the past), rain gear,etc. The borrowed brain bucket is DOT, but the wind is killin' my ears. WHAT?  And the $2 safety glasses keep most of the wind out of my eyes, but not all. Yeah, we gotta fix that.

New battery, check.

The slow jet is still clogged even after soaking overnight in SeaFoam.
