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.
