Hello! My scooter is boring...

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by hoony, Aug 29, 2007.

  1. Hey everyone!

    A few months ago I finally convinced my hubby to let me get a bike (it took me 4 years) but as a compromise I ended up with a scooter.

    I've been commuting into the city everyday since I got it, rain, hail, taxis and shine.

    Love being on a bike, but my scooter is boring. I want gears and vroom vroom :)

    I've decided it's a VTR250 for me. I can't wait! Just gotta sell my scoot first.

    Wish me luck people...
  2. Gluck.

    You'll love the vtr.
  3. Good luck hoony.
    Look in the NSW section for the learners ride 30 Sept. Scoots welcome, otherwise you have 4 weeks to get the VTR.

    another one for the VTR army....
    welcome there a great bike
  5. Good Luck hoony!!! :grin:

    Not having ridden a scooter i cant really speak from experience, however, i am sure you're making the right move.
  6. Good luck, Hoony!

    Depending on the size, sometimes the scooters are just too gutless. Having a bit more power? and the gears can give you more choice and control to get out of sticky situations. Tell your hubby that :)
  7. Good luck Hoony! :grin:
  8. Glad you realised it was smarter to buy something that more suited your needs, rather than dumping tons o money on it, like many scooter riders seem to do!
    You'll really enjoy something that is more responsive.

    Regards, Andrew.
