I went for my first "real" ride today (not just to work) and after a couple of hours decided to take the quick way from the city to Kew which meant... the freeway. A little apprehensive, and with Shaggy following to make sure I had no problems we went in... and the Bella went fine, a little slow getting from 80->100 (well, actually about 97), but the scooter was great. Me on the other hand, let me just say that I am glad it was only 2 k's worth of ride and no-one was around to hear the screams (maybe a little exaggeration here) Am I glad I went???? Yes. Will I do it again???? Yes Soon???? Maybe not for a while.
