Kansas City Twitter was ablaze this morning with news that the Birds have arrived. Not the scary kind – the fun electric scooter kind. I knew I had to get on one during lunch. Downloaded the app and entered my payment information. My first attempt failed because I had failed to bring my drivers license and helmet. I hustled back to the office and retrieved both.
The instructions are clear in the app. Pump it three times with your leg; gas/power is on the right; brake is on the left. I walked it across the street so I could start with traffic rather than against it. And one . . . two. . . three – off down Main Street. My first worry was that I would fall into the streetcar tracks. But no problem there. Then up 10th to Barney Allis to see the anti-Pence protest which was in full swing. I gave a thumbs up and nearly fell off the scooter!! Met another “Birder” and we chatted briefly about the novelty that made it’s way to KC. Rode around a bit more and then parked right where I found it – in front of locally owned Kaldi’s Coffee.
I will update this when I use it for Kansas City Municipal Court tomorrow!
