On The Road Again…

This weeks riding has been fun, it started last Friday with another trip down the highway to see Scooter Girl, and thankfully this time a lot of the bugs that inhabit the late afternoon sky must have had a better offer, and decided not to become plastered across the front of me.  There were some that decided to give it a go, and shared the same fate as their departed brothers a fortnight ago.  Thankfully Anthony doesn’t leave them there as a deterrent to others that might try and fly into the light……

But it was a great trip down once again, a lot of cloud cover ensured a cooler ride, but it was good fun.

The trip back on Monday looked like it may have been a wet one, overnight rain had made certain parts of the road a bit slippery, but after the half-way point the road was dry, and continued like that the rest of the way home.   Like Anthony, I enjoy these longer trips. The chance to stretch the legs a little out on the open road is great.  And the looks on the faces of the car drivers as they are overtaken by a scooter is always good too.

Today we headed out after Anthony finished work, headed up the M1 to Currumbin, down Stewart Road to the beach, then back up onto the Gold Coast highway before heading down through Tweed Heads, then refuelled on the way back, before arriving back in Kingscliff.

Looks something like this….

It was a good way to unwind after a busy day at work.   This weekend we’ll be out and about, and I’m sure SB & SG will be heading out to cruise around at some point.  Hopefully the weather will be warm and sunny.  Anyway, that’s it from me today, not much to report, stay safe and have fun,  Derbi.
Like Vespa, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and others….this week’s winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of The Week is Italian.  Born in 1975, she is a TV & Film actress and director.

Born in Rome, she is the daughter of a film director, producer and screenwriter, her great grandfather was also a composer.

She published a book of poems at age 8, and became an actress at age 9, and was cast in one of her father’s films at 16.

She appeared in the music video for Placebo’s “This Picture”, speaks fluent Italian, Russian and English, as well as French.

To many she will be remembered as “Yelana” in the Vin Diesel film “XXX” and she is Asia Argento.
