This week we were in the fortunate position of providing a scooter for 3 time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss. We were all a little star struck with Troy in the shop. Motorcycle manufacturers pay hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to have his backside on one of their products, in this instance Troy was paying for a ride.
"I loved my scooter in Europe & need one for the Gold Coast" so we provided one of Australian motorcyclings greats with a scooter to fit his needs.
On a personal note it was great to meet one of the true gentlemen of motorcycling. Everyone at Scooter HQ is a big fan of Troy Bayliss who is a great ambassador for anything two wheeled. We are especially grateful to Troy for allowing us to let the world know he loves his scooters but with three World Superbike titles under his belt he has nothing to prove.
We all had a bit of a laugh when we jokingly asked what he'd do when he hears the inevitable taunt "Get a real bike", he just smiled. Imagine making that comment only to have the helmet visor lift to reveal the face of a 3 time world champion who has more than one specially made factory Ducati Motorcycle sitting in the garage.
