  1. Evening all,
    Another returning rider after the mandatory absence from 80's/90's sports bikes. I would love to say that I was a capable rider but I never did feel I had the measure of my bikes and always held them in some reverence. My bikes scratched, my knees dragged (rarely) but mostly my dacks got cacked.
    I recently picked up a little Vespa scooter (LX150) and haven't stopped giggling since. It's more fun than watching 10 dogs in a bum scratching race across a bowling green on free scones day.
    I'll probably never ride another sports bike in anger but we are back on 2 wheels and enjoying the breeze.
    Just moved to Melbourne from Sydney and still finding my way around.

    Cheers and promise to waive.

  10. Why not ride a sportsbike?. I've still got mine.

    Welcome back to two wheels anyway.
  11. Welcome

    So I take it that riding a scooter doesn't scare you! You are very brave!
  12. I still do most of my commuting on a push bike - that is an eye opener!
  13. The best single line ever posted on netrider.

  16. It's the winter solstice thing. Allows riders, from beyond the grave, to terrorize the neighbourhood for a few hours on the shortest day.......
