Finally a dry road……

There were some large patches of fine weather today which made me think we might get to go out for our usual mid-week ride……and then the weather started turning ugly again, but thankfully the rain stayed away long enough for us to go out.

We headed north for our usual highway run, and then when we approached the airport tunnel we were lucky enough to have a jet land right in front of us, then pass over as we headed through the tunnel.  Very cool.

It was a fun ride, especially since we hadn’t been out for almost a week.  It was great to zip through the late afternoon traffic and basically leave all the stress of the work day behind.

There were only a few scooters and bikes out today, couple of 50’s and the odd Harley.   And as usual there were a few idiots on the road who (a) don’t look for bikes, cars, pedestrians etc… and (b) people who can’t read road signs, speed signs, etc and therefore also get in the way…..thankfully Derbi power allows us to get away from them.

So that’s it for today, hope all is going well for everyone out there, stay safe and I’ll see you next week. Cheers,   Derbi.

For this week’s winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the week, we feature a Ukranian born actress…born in 1979, she was then raised by her mother from the age of three, began modelling at age 13 and signed a modelling contract with a Paris-based agency at the age of 17.

She began her acting career in France in 2005, and won an award for her performance in L’Annulaire in 2006, starred in Hitman with Timothy Olyphant in 2007 and most recently she became the latest bond girl, “Camille Moses” in the 22nd James Bond film,  “Quantum of Solace”.

She is featured on the December 2008 cover of Maxim Magazine, she is Olga Kurylenko.

    Good that you finally had a chance to get out and clear the cobwebs!! Sound like you had a great ride and to see the plane land would have been awesome. Will have to attach scooter cam to the handlebars for such events.

    Really looking forward to going for another scooter ride…been quite a while for me…hope I remember how!!
