     ....if I manage to turn up I won't be on my little red scooter but on a big black 'loaner' ....I really think the little Aerox would struggle....my Mana is being diagnosed so to placate me the shop eventually came up with a loaner...

    c'mon the sunny days....mornings at least anyways....

    cheers, Phil......Smile

     ....a t-max and now that I have ridden one I sure wouldn't buy one.....a bit overrated.....maybe if the weather clears up a bit I  can give it a fairer assesment....but so far....No

     ....got a better offer ....this afternoon the shop rang me to let me know I can pick up the Mana tomorrow.....so the barge like t-max goes back.....maybe when they inspected my Mana they may have thought I would flog the t-max  just as much....but the Mana does appear to be pretty tough....

    ....the Aerox isn't really suited to much outside the city.....85 downhill....should I get it seen to by a proper mechanic?....goes good enough.....but I reckon its as noisy as a bucket of bolts.....maybe this is normal....Huh?

    ....sure is cheap fun though.....flat out everywhere and barely breaking the law....Devil

     ...I went for a ride out to Appin this afternoon just to faliarize myself with the route......geez it's a fair way out there just to get to the start of the ride....my bum would be complaining to me by the end of the ride....no matter what armchair I was riding.....I really am getting soft in my old age....

     ...I must admit that once I got out of the suburbs to where the t-max could stretch out it turned into a plesant ride....still not one I would plonk down the readies for though...

    Re: S/W Sydney ride this sat 21/4

    Had a great ride with Linz's Macarthur Crew. 8 riders including 1 PX, 1 Silverwing, 1 Mana,  2 Burgmen, and 3 Vespa GTS 250's. Rode the highways and Byways of the Cambelltown Picton area. Its very beautiful around that area, especially after the rain, which we got a taste off but all in all it was a lovely day on some great roads with a lively and friendly group of scooter riders. Thanks Guys, It was fun. I like these Saturday rides.
