Cool Solved a personal mystery... Zoooom Zoooom

Ever since I started attending school again, I've noticed a bike with a unique sticker on it often parked in the same spot.


Zoooom Zoooom

At first it was just fun to see, I'd find the owner and get to talk about the bike... Then weeks turned into months.... Which became a year.

I'd see the bike parked at the rack, over and over, but never see it pull in. It'd be there before I'd arrive, or I'd come out after a class, and there it would be. I'd leave, and either it'd still be there, or gone.

On more than one occasion, I'd go to my locker after locking my bike up, and then it'd appear. Or, I'd pass by it on my way to get my helmet, come out and it'd be gone. Missing my chance at meeting the owner by mere seconds.

Then someone pulled the fire alarm, and everybody had to leave the building. When it was over, and we were OK'd to return, I heard someone say "Zoooom Zoooom" as I was walking past it.

I expressed my frustration at having missed figuring out who the owner was, and why the bike had the Zoooom Zoooom sticker on it. Well, it was my lucky day.

The person who said "Zoooom Zoooom" was actually the owner's co-worker, and even more, was walking with the owner.


Meet Jeff, owner of Zoooom Zoooom

Turns out that someone decorated his bike as a prank, and he never removed the sticker.

It took over a year, but I'm glad to have finally met him.

Rubberside Down!

Don't you love it when patience pays off?

But where does the Zoooom zoooom sticker come from? Is it part of the Mazda campaign?

Presumably, but he wasn't the one who put it on the bike.
