  • Where to from here?

    Well it is now official that my beloved Armani is up for sale.

    See add on scootersales here

    The time has come for something bigger, but just as stylish.

    So the question has to be asked.... What is his replacement?  Well that is being kept under wraps until it has been finalised.  Just to keep everyone guessing, and to make it more special for me.

    I  have not decided on a new name for the new scooter, but that might take a few more rides and see what comes naturally.

    The only hint I will give about the new scooter is                        no bugger it, no hints.

    Hopefully all will be revealed very soon.

  • 8000kms in 6 months & 3 weeks

    Well I have not had Armani just under 7 months, and I clocked over 8000kms this morning.  Not too shabby considering I only do maybe one 200km trip each week, and a little bit of back and forward to the shops.  Not working, means I dont have to ride him to work, so how have the km's clocked up?  Well I am not too sure, must be those rides up to Springbrook, as I dont feel I am doing that much work on the bike, I probably should be doing a lot more :)

    In the 18 months I had the BeeWee I only clocked just over 8,000kms.  This was because in the 12 months that I had it in Brisbane, I was new to the city, unsure of where I was going etc, and was not keen to get lost.  Just goes to show what a great bike can do to ones confidence and riding skills (which I am told are becoming quite developed, in a very short time), this I also put down to great advice, and great people who I am happy to please, and learn from.

    Well Armani, we have made it this far in such a short time.  Imagine what would have been possible if I was on a larger scooter.  Don't get me wrong, I am so happy with the Sportcity, and love it dearly, and if I do get rid of it, will miss it, as it has been there for the new chapter in my scooting life, and has shown me what is possible, and where I want to be in the next 12 months.  Just where that will be, is a secret, and what I will be on, I dont know yet, but I am looking forward to many more kilometres, and watching my wheels go round and round.

    So who would have thought that in such a short time, I would have come so far?  I think many people have been surprised, and I hope we have done them proud.  Just goes to show, you give a determined chick, a purpose and the right equipment, and there is no stopping her, even is she is blonde... I have ocasionally been blue, red, purple, and naturally brown as well :)

    Look out Scooter World, Dak has arrived.
