My Life As A Scooter

Ramblings from the mind of a scooter. Yes this is a blog written for scooters, from the point of view of a Scooter.

Get up and get out there.....


So what’s been happening in the life of Derbi?   Not a lot, but its all good.

For today’s ride home we will be taking the back road once more for a quick blast through the cool corners – so much more fun than the highway.    

When Anthony was heading back from the coast over the weekend he saw some Yamaha bikes at the BP servo. The guy was on a black R1 (with black leathers and Blue/Black Shoei Helmet) while the girl was on a matching black R6 (with black/pink leathers and a Pink/Black Shoei helmet)

This pair reminded Anthony of his desire for he and Vicki to one day jump on some bikes and ride off together!   That would be extremely cool….and to quote Anil from his Foxnomad blog entry “Why you need to take a motorcycle trip at least once in your life”….. "Riding a motorcycle across an open road from one destination to the next is the modern-day equivalent of setting off into the sunset on horseback. Let your fear and the thrill put you on two wheels and not keep you from it.”

Do you ever feel like you are living in the movie Groundhog Day?

Well personally I don’t, but that’s because I’m a scooter, not a person ….but in my never-ending quest to understand humanity, I often talk to Anthony and he has said that lately that’s what life is like for him and his family.

Each day it’s the same deal – you get up, work damn hard, do the very best you can for your kids and family…..and then you get back up and do it all over again!

And like the troopers that they are, Anthony and Vicki keep on going above and beyond each day!

But unfortunately there are times when things don’t quite follow the system, moments when stuff creeps in that hinders their ability to always do their best each day.....moments when they cop other people’s crap, and even if they don’t take it on board, they still receive it

……and then there are moments when certain people on this planet should have a good hard look at themselves and eat an extra large bowl of STFU each and every day!   

And so today’s blog post is dedicated to Scooter Boy & Scooter Girl…..and all the other hard-working and un-selfish Groundhogs out there. 

Get out there and do what you do….I salute you!!
