Great day for a ride

Hi there folks….yes I’m still here.  No Derbi just yet, but that could change soon….but until then, the mid-week ramblings of your’s truly continue.

We had a couple of rides today…..firstly at lunchtime, Anthony needed some bread and milk, so instead of walking across the road to Woolworths, we did a 10km ride to Woolworths at Tweed Heads.  The weather was awesome, and perfect for a midday ride.  Anthony returned to work ready for more work (although that enthusiasm did fade after a while…..) but then it was time to go home from work and we went out again….

Tonight’s ride was a bit chilly (not for me), but Anthony seemed to be feeling the cold….and there were two reasons for that….a) it was cold, and b) Scooter Girl was unfortunately not on the back with him.

So we headed up the coast for a cruise around, enjoying the smells, sounds and sights of late afternoon Gold Coast in action.  But it was during the cruising around that I decided today’s post has to include a segment called “things that make you go WHAT THE..?”

And the reason for this is the many and varied characters who seem to think that use of the road is something that isn’t quite taken seriously…..firstly there were a few bus drivers who need some serious attitude adjustments (and perhaps driving lessons), next was the lady in the green Toyota who decided that she was going to try driving the wrong way down the wrong side of the street….thankfully she was in front of us, and not heading towards us…..but finally I’d like to make mention of the pedestrians who think its ok to just run out onto the road without looking or caring about what’s coming towards them……hello people – when you do run out, don’t stop like a stunned deer in the headlights when you see that bright light heading towards you….don’t think like Mater, that isn’t the Ghost Light coming towards you….its a scooter about to run your slow-ass over !!!

But today was great, and I’m looking forward to (and enjoying) each ride that I have….who knows when it may be my last…but until then, off we go!!!

And so for today’s episode of Monaco’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the Week we feature someone new…And today we feature a 23 year old American.  She has a Cuban mother, Italian/French father and she was born in Columbia.  She began her acting career in Kindergarten Cop, and followed that with various TV and movie performances, and most recently she starred in the J.J Abrams movie “Cloverfield”.

She recently celebrated her birthday on May 10th, she’s a brunette and has a puppy named Navy….she is Odette Yustman.
