Urban Wasp, (aka: Vespa Vancouver) currently has a contest underway where the prize is a brand new SYM Mio scooter. I noticed the ad in a recent edition of the Vancouver Courier. Very simple rules, contest runs to mid August, unless the scooter has already been won. You cut out the ad and exchange it for a key. The top case on the SYM is full of scooter keys and they all look the same. You get to select ONE key from the box and put it into the ignition.
(Here is my KEY)
(It has to fit here)
(The key slides into the ignition)
The moment of truth, but the key doesn't turn. I don't want to force it too much, but if it was the correct key, then I would have instantly won the scooter
The SYM Mio is a retro styled scooter sort of like a Honda Metropolitan (Jazz) or Yamaha Vino.
Doesn't hurt to have another vehicle in the garage, but I was out of luck. You only get one chance for a key.
Today was a day to socialize at Urban Wasp as it was their open house. I had only planned to stay an hour or so, have a small snack and refreshment. A group of us had gathered by the front counter to talk when I heard a voice from behind ask "I'm Dave Dixon and I wondered if my scooter was ready"
I immediately turned around and said "Hi BIG GUY"
I also mentioned to others that "Hey, the small scooter BIG GUY is here"
Of course they don't have a clue what I am rambling on about. I am talking about DAVE who also has a blog titled Big Guy, Small Scooter ( <--- click link )
It's always nice when you have a chance to meet up with a fellow blogger. One more thing to check off my "to do list".
(The BIG GUY, aka: Dave with his Vespa LX50)
I knew his Baby was sick and he had made an appointment weeks ago for service. I didn't realize that today was the day he was going to be here.
Lucky thing nothing serious was wrong with his scooter. It just needed a minor check up and normal maintenance
(preparing for take off)
Dave is finally on his way back to Maple Ridge, BC
I moved further down the lane and caught this last glimpse of Dave before he rode out of sight
I was happy to have finally met Dave (The Big Guy) and hoping that he will be able to attend one of our summer rides.
I am also a little disappointed that I didn't come home with a Brand New SYM Mio, but my key didn't fit. They told me that I could keep the key . . . and I was wondering whether it would fit one of these in the back lot
I wonder if they would notice if one went missing . . . ?
