Abby and Brittany ride a scooter! Yes, these ladies are conjoined twins… and they don’t let anything stop them from following their dreams and trying new things. They have two spines and nervous systems but two arms and two legs, the right side and left side are controlled completely separately by each woman. Teamwork and communication get them through every task, even riding two wheels!

"Lady Florence Norman, a suffragette, on her motor-scooter in 1916, traveling to work at offices in London where she was a supervisor. The scooter was a birthday present from her husband, the journalist and Liberal politician Sir Henry Norman." (Thanks to Barbara Fuentes for photo and text.) 
It’s not a motorcycle, but she certainly paved the way for us motoladies.

Another good deed done by someone on two wheels- scooter rider out with his buddies sees a blind man walking down the side of the road and stops to help him out. You can tell the elderly gentleman appreciated the young motorists politeness, respect and assistance with his very simple, “Thank you.”

This video made my eyes well up with tears in the best way- these past few days have made me feel very humble and thankful. This video just reinforces the fact that there is good in the world.

Another moto advertisement up for best of the year… "The 2000 Yamaha Razz. Can’t handle it? Well, close your browser, head over to a used car lot and buy yourself a minivan. Give the keys to little Timmy and let him drive himself to soccer practice. You don’t belong at the helm of a vehicle." [VIEW FULL SIZE]

Vintage motorcycle illustration. Actually is this more of a scooter? A dirt bike scooter?
Update: Thanks for all the feedback guys- the consensus is that it’s a Honda Trail 90 or 110. Often times called a Postie bike in Australia, used for delivering mail.

More cool Californians- the lady is on a BSA Bantam 175.
From Emma Bass-

My amazing pinstriper friend Scooter and his wife Lisa. He built this two-stroke 175cc BSA Bantam for her a while back and she just got her moto license. I love the look of the bantam for my eventual bobber project but those cc’s would be like me trying to ride a sewing machine.
