Stewie's 500 Mile Service

One of the bennies of my current work is that I work from home most of the time, going in only when face-to-face meetings are necessary (which so far is quite rare).  So, as long as I have access to my laptop, power and wifi access to the Internet, I can do work.

Yesterday, between meetings, I rode Stewie.....Martha's Genuine Buddy 125 Scooter over to Sportique Scooters on Broadway Blvd for his 500 mile service.  I wanted the dealer to do the first service to get a good baseline hopefully and am planning on doing further services myself.  (Although, its actually not that expensive a process).

Martha had the time but not the inclination to brave heavy city traffic which must be challenged to get to the dealer so it fell to me.  Bummer.  ; )

Got to the dealer, handed over the keys and plopped myself down on the waiting area couch.  Logged onto the Internet using the dealer's wifi and worked for the next couple of hours while they serviced Stewie.

Of course, there were the occasional stretch breaks where I wandered about the dealership and admired their offerings:

 New scoots....interesting color schemes

 The scooter shop also sells Enfields

 These are out in "the yard".  Not sure if awaiting repair or 
that's where they store their "used" scooters for sale.

 The Stella Offerings

 A restoration candidate perhaps?

Right at the two hour mark, Stewie was ready.  Services done, no issues found.  All for less than $165.00.  A comparable service at the Beemer dealer would be closer to $400!  Methinks perhaps it's more cost-effective for me to have this dealer service Stewie than use up my time to do if only the BMW dealer was so cheap.  

Rode Stewie home with no issues, weather was cool and the sun was warm....perfect two-wheel riding day!
