Life! According to Dak

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.
