⪧ We left our life in New York City to make a new one in Provence ⪦

Xavier's tricycle.



Xavier is making a wave in NYC with his scooter - it has three wheels. Surprisingly (for a Frenchman), it is an Italian creation. My favorite though is the helmet he chose to go with the tricycle scooter - it is essentially a helicopter helmet (this portion is French). Mirrored visor - spells aggression. Pretty fitting. With just a touch of jest - the red animal-like ears. I'll be honest, I still ride on it all the time with him - overdue or not. People (on the street, in their cars, etc) like to get preachy about that - makes me laugh. I tell them Xavier is a very cautious driver. Are you familiar with Parisian scooter driving techniques?

Be forewarned: if a visit to see little baby is in the cards, you will probably also be treated to a ride on the scooter.

Surely he's a superhero, but what shall we call him?

Windbreaker + pinstripes = Salary Man?

How do you say "badger" en français?

HA!!! I saw those scooters in Nice, of all places, and thought they were very funny, especially since the guys riding them were trying to look so tough!

It is because they are tough to ride...

Oh yes, I am sure they are! ;-) I'll wave at you when you drive by, and I promise not to laugh! (I live very nearby to you so I hope to see you driving around!) Seriously, looks like a lot of fun, and much safer than a normal motorcylce!

Ah, this is the epitome of one of my favourite things in Paris - men in suits on motos. Lovely to see Xavier is doing his part to bring it(very gorgeously) to NYC. And Emilie, I love that you go on it too.
