Here's the final result of the Cayman Net News' article they approached me with questions about. As predicted, most of the material I gave them ended up on the editing room floor, but that's what the editorial process is all about, isn't it? :)
Page 8 of the Cayman Net News
These pictures aren't of me (duh), they're of Lee Arie, the guy who runs the Vespa shop here on Cayman where I bought my scooter. I dont actually expect you to read the article here, as the print it tiny tiny. Because I'm a nice guy, Im providing links to the web version of the article, plus the jpg of the paper on the Net News site (which may end up broken one of these days as they shift it to their archive).
“TWO scooter riders in Grand Cayman think that form of transportation could hold the key to resolving some of the traffic congestions being experienced by commuters on a daily basis here.“
“Managing Director of Auto Alternative Cayman, Lee Arie, who is a scooter sales agent and rider, said using the two-wheeler could be both hassle-free and economical. “
“Also supporting that viewpoint is Mark Faccin who owns a car and a scooter for the past four months.
Mr Faccin has no doubt in his mind that the latter reduces spending and lengthy periods in traffic lines.
“The benefits of a scooter outweighed the drawbacks. I still have a car and use it when I’m not commuting to and from work,” he said. Both men told Cayman Net News which group of people would most likely benefit from scooters. “
There's more to it, and I come off sounding like a pompous, righteous, arrogant horse's ass, but hey, what can I say. I AM a pompous horse's ass most of the time :)
