Well, here is my first blog. Might try to make a habit of this, just to keep the more pertinent memories alive.
Last week, was in Phuket, hired a 125cc scooter, and the missus and I cruised around Phuket Island. Up to the Big Buda, across to Phuket Town Weekend Market, and then back to Karon Beach (Movenpick resort) via Patong.
Was a great arvo, and was the first time ever Nancy has been pillion on a bike. She loved it, and the freedom.
Also realised you cant lean a scooter over like my CB400, you grind the running boards on it
In another week of firsts, finally got Nancy out on the back of my CB400. She did well. Complained that Phuket was better, as she doesn't like wearing a helmet ..... Or pants, or a jacket, or shoes. Likes the 30deg heat more.
Got pulled over out front of Saturday practice yesterday for the first time ever for a license check with Bradley as pillion, promptly got so flustered I didn't see the BP, and rode another 3 k's up the road wondering where the hell I was, before chucking a u turn to get back to Elwood.
