    Spotted!

    I don't know whether it's worth having a seprate thread for scooter rider's you've spotted while out & about? I'm thinking it's worth doing something as it encourages riders to keep an eye out & so possibly be more aware of their surroundings.

    Today I spotted Gadget's wife on her black Fuoco while we were both waiting at a traffic light. I gave the airhorn a tap (scaring the cager infront) & waved when Mrs Gadget looked my way, but she either didn't see me or didn't recognise me. *sigh* oh well.

    Scaring a driver how irresponsible can you be. Practice what you preach about road safety.

    I like this concept, and if it grows then we should seperate and place the thread somewhere on its own.

     Well, I spotted several fellow scooterists on the way to work this morning (I was on mine...not driving the car!).
    I haven't the faintest idea who they may have been but there was mutual head-nodding all round. Big Smile

    This morning I spotted two red Vespa GTS250ies (no I wasn't admiring my own reflection Cool), one on Loftus St heading towards the city at about 7:15am, the other was taking the Roe Hwy east entrance from Willeri Drv at about 7:30am. Oh, saw an Aprilia Mojito behind a caryard fence too... maybe it's up for sale? Huh?

    Then on the way home it was a black Firenze. The rider wearing a matte black (or dark grey) helmet & a blue/black mesh jacket.

    Yes Big Smile

    There seem to only be three or four scooter riders in my town, I see each of them every once in a while. None of them wear any protective gear though, just shorts, t-shirt, and helmet :-/

    There are probably about ten to twenty motorcycle riders, only one of whom wear any gear. It makes me feel silly decked out in a big jacket, gloves etc :-/

    I spotted a girl on a BeeWeeeeeeeeeeeeeee heading south down Marmion Avenue (Western Australia) on Saturday as I was heading west on North Beach Road. I don't suppose it was anyone here? I got such a buzz from seeing another scooter on the road & the nod she gave that my head nearly fell off returning the nod. Watching her take off leaving the cagers behind gave me the giggles also. Well done scooter chick! Yes Big Smile
