When a Scooter isn’t Enough

I can’t say why this motorcycle rapt me enough to take a single shot on Aug. 20, 2021. The iconic, classic-styling only grabbed my attention when processing the Featured Image. For sure, the odd parking location—in the Georgia-Park Blvd alley at Adams in San Diego’s University Heights district—set against electric meters charged my interest.

The G400c is manufactured by Genuine, which is better known for scooters. The motorcycle you see is the only one the company makes.
