I was heading down 17 when I came across Nick from New Hampshire. He left around May 2nd and has been averaging 100mi a day on his old Puch moped! He was just as shocked as I was to see another crazy scooter rider heading south.

We split ways an I had to stop at a hardware store for a few screws. He cruised past at 30mph so I knew I'd catch him eventually. 10mi up the road he was pulled aside with a busted throttle cable. He didn't have a spare (it was broke too) so we cut the housing and made it a thumb pull throttle! It worked and he was satisfied.
I texted him later to see how he was doing and apparently his rear bearings went out for the second time of the trip only 10 mi later. I told him about the Hostel in the Forest in Brunswick and auggested he stay there if he needed to crash.
No clue where e is now...
