Fast and shiney things……

Today we headed out for a ride at lunch time…..the rain had gone, the sun had returned, and life is as it should be.  We (myself, Scooter Boy & Scooter Girl) had a brief ride on sunday in the rain, but today’s sunshine was perfect for a run down to Salt (for a quick bite to eat), followed by a 35 minute blast around the streets of Kingscliff…..the near deserted lunchtime suburban roads becoming our own private racetrack as we soaked up the sun……and loved it!

Here I am hanging out (while Anthony ate lunch) with the Salt Surf Club in the background.

Anthony is once again thinking about the approaching arrival of his new scooter.  The Derbi is apparently only a few weeks away, and the thought of having a new toy is getting him really excited.   It will be an awesome opportunity for him to own such an amazing bike, and I’m once again proud to have helped him along on his two wheeled journey.

This weeks Celebrity Pillion Passenger is a repeat visitor, having been the first to sit upon the virtual black vinyl seat in November 2007 on Anthony’s other blog at Scooter Community

She is the daughter of a rock icon, a former model, and currently an actress.  She gained attention with her role in Armageddon in 1998, and followed that performance with many, including her role as “Arwen” in The Lord of The Rings Trilogy, and she will soon be hitting the screens in The Incredible Hulk.  She lives in New York, but plans to raise her son in the country.  She wears a size 10 shoe, hates piercings and tattoos, and despite the fact that her father is a huge star, she didn’t meet him until 1988.  And so once again, we welcome Steve Tyler’s little girl, the one and only, Liv Tyler.

This week also involved some more non-scooter related activity and last sunday Anthony, Vicki and the boys headed down to the park at Salt, to check out some fine crafted pieces of Italian engineering that were on display.  A group of 11 Ferrari’s were on show, with models ranging from the F360, F430, 599 GTB etc.

Anthony would like to add that there were a number of F360’s and F430’s, and as they look very similar, he isn’t going to embarass himself and label the photos incorrectly……but anyway here we go…..

Here’s anthony with a 599 GTB Fiorano

The boys with a blue spider once again not sure if its a F360 or F430.  (Anthony took this one, hence no logo on the shot)

Love that number plate….and the editing on photo!

How much is that V8 in the window?

The message on the number plate is exactly what would be expected when getting behind the wheel of one of these.

The prancing horse in all its glory.

The cars may have gotten wet from the rain, but they still looked classy.  Love this pic.

Many thanks to Vicki for taking some cool shots.  Her amazing photography talents once again on display.  For more info about Vicki and her photography, checkout www.vickijames.com.au

And no thanks to the security guard who was on duty “protecting” these cars….mate, you are a tool…and so deserving of that comment given out to you by the lady whose kids you had a go at!

That’s it for me this week……the mid-week ramblings are once again over, and I look forward to seeing you all out on the black stuff…..stay safe and happy riding.

    The Ferrari are a sign of greatness and the story of a great country: ITALY. Sincerely
