They’re engaged!!!

First up…..I’d like to announce (on behalf of Scooter Boy And Scooter Girl) that the happy couple are engaged!!  The proposal took place on Valentine’s Day and I’d like to wish them all the best for their upcoming wedding!!

And here they are, yesterday at the Motorcycle & Scooter Expo………on a Yamaha Cruiser.

This afternoon Anthony and I went out for a great ride….we started down the highway from Kingscliff to Murwillumbah, turning off the highway at Condong, out to Tomewin Road, then turned off towards north Tumbulgum, then up over the hill to Terranora, then back to Kingscliff.  A nice leisurely 61.7km, which looks something like this…..

And here are some shots of some of the great corners along the way…..

this first one is where I was going…..

And here’s another shot looking back down the road

It was a great ride, weather was good (until just near the end when the approaching storm meant that the usual scenic trip over Terranora was now going to be a head-down and get home ride….) and both Anthony and I had a lot of fun.

As it was mentioned above, Scooter Boy & Scooter Girl (and the three blue ones and two pink ones) headed up to the Australian Motorcycle Expo and Scooter Festival at the Gold Coast Convention Centre yesterday.  They had a great day out, getting to look at (and sit on) lots of bikes.   Due to the fact that the 7 of them went up, I had to stay home…..apparently transporting a family of 7 on a scooter is only allowed (or accepted) in areas of South East Asia, and is frowned upon here…..

But despite the fact that I couldn’t go, they all had a great time….and here are some shots of the day…..

First is the very cool “FOX” branded Vespa…

Next up is the awesome Gilera Fuocco

Here’s Anthony’s dream machine…..the new Ducati 1198s

And then there’s his other dream machine….the HD Night Rod…

No its not Ewan, or Charley…..It’s Anthony imagining that he is riding on the Road of Bones in far eastern Russia……

Next up we have the $185,000.00 MV Augusta F4CC….(no. 84 of 100)….this is the same bike that Anthony’s son almost knocked over last time…..

Here’s an awesome custom painted Hayabusa….with graphics taken from the Mummy – Tomb of The Dragon Emperor.

And finally… the winner of the “Uglier than a Redneck’s buck-toothed sister” category….. the Victory Vision.   This shocker has a dry weight of 365kg, and both Anthony and his brother struggled to get the bike upright when they both sat on it (much to the laughter of the guys standing around) …here’s Anthony after dragging the thing upright.  I think that George Jetson has a lot to answer for with this one!

This weeks winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the week is an American actress who has starred in horror films such as Final Destination 3, Black Christmas and Death Proof….and also comedy and action films, recently playing John McLean’s daughter in Live Free or Die Hard.   She was born in November 1984, she enjoys cooking, sewing, dancing, and singing….She Is Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

    I thought it was pretty cool too! Loving being engaged to you as well! Love you! If we could find a spare $50,000 we could both get one of those BMW’s and go for a ride…..xxx

    If you had $50,000 to spare maybe you could build a bike made for 7…like s stretched limo?
    My very best wishes Scooter Boy and Scooter Girl.
