  1. Hi newbie first post. I am an odd breed of person, I ride both a cruiser and a classic scooter - though obviously not at the same time.

    I ride as often as being a mother of 3 and having 2 jobs allows me to (so generally not much)

    I have in the last 18 months returned to riding after a 25 year break - literally - fell off in the wet and broke my right knee and both wrists.

    I'm a 40 something old woman with little confidence learning to ride all over again and hoping not to fall off because I won't heal as quickly as I did when I was young.

    I finally convinced my OH to get his bike license, so my mother's day present this year was him attending his pre-learners. He is coming along more quickly than I, perhaps because he isn't quite 40 something and has no prior recollection of injury - and he's a boy - they don't seem to have the fear factor us girls do for some reason.

    Hope to gain and share where I can with this group of people. I gained friends and knowledge for the scooter community when I first bought Emelda, now hoping to expand my riding experience on Scout - I've posted pics in the "garage" of both my bikes.

    Thanks for welcoming me.

  9. Welcome, 40ish counts as a pup & if you ride you are immediately 38% hotter.
