Hey guys, I'm new here, thought I'd introduce myself. I'm 43 and recently bought a scooter, really to see if I could get used to wind in my face, I coped with that all right, and will upgrade to a REAL bike soon, hehe. It served a few more purposes as well, I could stay in bed longer in the morning, and also put less fuel into our 4 litre sedan, so it's all good. Actually, one of my fondest memories from childhood, was going down to the main road, Anzac Highway, about 300m from home, to wait for Dad, who was riding his Vespa to and from work. He'd carry me home riding on the running board, sometimes with my brother on the back, all HIGHLY illegal these days but we're talking about the early '70s here folks. People did that stuff then. :wink: If you guys see me on the road, don't laugh, just wave as you ride by..... :grin: Rock on!
