New Scooter rider in Victoria.

  1. Just bought a Honda Dio for riding around the Macdon Ranges area. Got my L plates in January so now to get some experience before going for the license.

    just turned 65 and this was on the list of things to do. Never ridden a motor cycle ever before. The biggest problem at the moment is it takes longer to get all the gear on than ride down for coffee!!

  2. Welcome Pete, Go to a Coffee shop further away ;) The journey is the thing. I recommend Seasons in Riddells Creek. :)

  3. Welcome to the forum Pete!

    That's half the fun of going for a coffee. Most people would gladly go out of their way for a coffee and forget to mention the trip is 250kms away , full of twisty roads and assorted wildlife. Any excuse to ride :)

    Here's to many an adventure!
  4. thanks Chris, I will give Seasons a go the next cool day.
  5. Thanks Jaytee for the welcome.
  6. Hi and welcome Pete. Coffee and motorcycling go well together, tomorrow we are riding nearly 400km to get one! Aren't we cjvfrcjvfr ?
