Get out on the road and go!

This past week’s weather has mostly been fantastic for riding, and yesterday afternoon was no exception.

We were out for a late afternoon ride, and for a bit of a change of pace we decided to head back home from the Gold Coast via Bermuda Street, but then that got too busy so we turned off at Broadbeach and headed out to the highway once more.

Before heading out to the back road we spotted several scooters, lots of bikes…….and a whole bunch of cars  filled with mostly one person that slowly negotiated the late afternoon peak hour traffic……it was satisfying to zip past them as they waited to move a few meters on the road.

And then we were back on the M1, it was throttle down and off we went.   It wasn’t hot or cold, the sun was just going down, and it was perfect weather to get out for a blast down the road.

As summer is approaching, it will mean more time out on the road during the week, as well as longer rides to visit Scooter Girl on weekends…..(they are both looking forward to that)  And getting out and about in the sun is part of what scootering is all about.  Sure it’s good both economically and environmentally, but primarily its FUN….and that’s just the way it should be.

This week’s winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the Week is a Model, a former Actress, is married to an Indian textile company heir and now lives on a 400-acre organic farm in Gloucestershire.  She played the role of “Vanessa Kensington” alongside Mike Myers in the first two Austin Powers films, was known as “Hugh Grant’s Girlfriend” for 13 years, and started modelling at the age of 29.

She has been described as “one of the worlds most famous arm ornaments, model and some-times actress”, she claims she hasn’t watched television since 1979, she is 43 years old, she is Elizabeth Hurley.
