Night Rides

After work on Mondays, Anthony often likes to go for a ride.  And last week it was no exception.  And so with no particular destination in mind, we decided to head up the Gold Coast highway for a while…….we then kept going, allowing me to experience my first night view of the Gold Coast as we headed up to Southport.   It was cool to checkout the lights, the smells, the sounds and idiot drivers that the coast had to offer.

I’m still not sure if we were unlucky, or just unfortunate to have not one, but two Mitsubishi Lancers decide to change lanes without looking at various times along our journey, which caused a few tense moments, but we were ok.  Thankfully we saw them before they saw us and were able to take action accordingly.

Late yesterday afternoon we were out again, and were joined once again by Scooter Girl as we headed for a spin around Coolangatta, then up to Currumbin and then down the M1 (mainly because Anthony likes the run through the airport tunnel).
It was a bit cold, but still good fun.

Tonight we were out again and headed down the highway to Murwillumbah to show me off to Anthony’s dad.  Once again, several layers of clothing were applied to deal with the cooler temperatures.

Despite the cold it was good fun to get out once again, and I’m looking forward to getting out and about again this week.

For this weeks instalment of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of The Week, we feature another American actress.  She was born in Minnesota in 1982, is 173cm tall and has become one of Hollywood’s most sought after actresses.

She performed in musical theatre as a child, then took up modelling, followed by acting at age 14.

She starred as Leatherface’s greatest nemesis in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and was a vampire hunter in Blade: Trinity.

She is an amateur photographer, is part German, French, English and Native American, and on the day after she was born, her parents took her to a dog-sled race where the temperature was thirty degrees below zero.

She was ranked 3rd on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 list for 2008 – She is Jessica Biel

IT’S DERBI TIME

Its Derbi time.

Hi everyone, sorry for the long time between posts, but I only arrived here in Kingscliff last week, and Anthony has been on holidays etc etc…..sure it’s sounds like excuses but things have been busy.

So I guess the first thing to do is introduce myself……..After much speculation….my name isn’t some exotic Spanish sounding thing, I’m simply “Derbi”.…and apparently I was the first of my kind to be registered in NSW….

So you may be wondering what my opinion of my new homeland is – having been manufactured in Spain… I’m a big fan of it so far.  I haven’t seen a great deal of it yet, but I’m hoping to see so much more.  But what I have experienced has been great.

And what do I think of my owner – Well, Scooter Boy is cool…and so is Scooter Girl.   I was lucky enough to meet them both last Friday afternoon, and after going through the inspection, registration and insurance process I was ready to go…..so after heading to my new home they got their gear and off we went.

Since then I’ve had the chance to go on some of Anthony’s favourite bits of road, (with more to come) and looking forward to many amazing rides.   So now you know who I am and you’ll be hearing more from me again soon…..I’m looking forward to more adventures with Scooter Boy & Scooter Girl too…

Hope to see some of you out and about…..until then, ride safely,

Derbi.

(Here I am just after being registered on Friday…)

And so we now come to the part of the blog that many of you wait for…..and for the first instalment of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger I thought we’d stick with the previous formula (i.e.  brunette actress) but this weeks winner has a different look to most.  She is an American model, actress, musician, and fashion designer…..and she was born in Kiev (Ukraine)

Her modelling career began at the age of 9, and in 2004 she was the Richest Supermodel in the world (reaching $10.5 Million) Her acting career began in 1985, but it took off in 1997 with “The Fifth Element” when she played the role of Leeloo.  Other notable performances were the roles of Alice in the “Resident Evil” series, and Violet Song jat Shariff in “Ultraviolet”

She was once the singer and guitarist for the band “Plastic Has Memory” and also has a clothing line that she shares with another model.   She is the “reigning queen of kick-butt”, an A-list action star and MTV has labelled her “Every Geek’s Dream Girl”

She is the one and only Milla Jovovich
