    Hi everyone. After many , many years started riding again. Hope is not to late. A year ago or so I got this crazy idea to get a scooter (to old for a motorbike?). I did get Bolwell Arriba 125 and learn (again) my "trade" on it. Soon discovered it isn't enough (lack of power). Changed to Yamaha Majesty 250 and polished my skills. Very good ride. Done 6000 -7000 km on it and changed again. This time is a big one - Suzuki Burgman 650. It has everything: power , speed and comfort. Gladly would get in touch with other scooter owners, I have plans but about this perhaps later. For now, regards to all wishing you warmth in winter and stay upright.

  7. G'day, welcome to the group mate. Never too old for a motorcycle, I'll be 60 next birthday and I know a hell of lot of riders who are a damn sight older than me who are still riding, saying that though if big scooters are you're thing then the BMW C650s are good or even go over the top with the Aprillia 850 scooter ;)
  8. Thank you Guys. 650cc is the the biggest I'm allowed to ride. Still very happy :).
