I’m Back….

Howdy everyone, sorry its been a while since I said hello, but it’s been a busy few weeks.

So what’s been happening in the life of Derbi?

Well I celebrated my 1st anniversary of life with Anthony and Vicki recently –  1 year since I came along and changed two-wheeled transport for them forever.

Here I am on the day that I was first registered, just over a year ago.

So what’s happened in that time? We’ve enjoyed over 8000km of travel, have seen so many amazing bits of scenery, had some interesting (and often scary) rides in all types of weather and above all, enjoyed the great outdoors the way its meant to be enjoyed – On Two Wheels!

The roads that we’ve traveled on have ranged from awesome twisty sections of the Gold Coast hinterland and NSW Border Ranges, as well as long highway stretches, motorway rides and everything in between.  And finding new and exciting roads in my new home has been great also.

Its been awesome to share those rides with Scooter Boy & Scooter Girl, and I look forward to the next year together with them.

Some day I’d love to tackle a road that is known around as one of the worlds best biking roads…it has several names….its official title is part of US 129, but to most people its known as the “Tail Of The Dragon”.

The Dragon

The Dragon stretches for only 11 miles, but in that distance there are 318 curves!! It is situated near the Tennessee/North Carolina border. Movies such as “Thunder Road” and “The Fugitive” have been filmed on stretches of this road.

This weeks winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the week looks similar to Kate Beckinsale from Underworld in the following photo.  She was born in New York on December 28, 1981 and moved with her family to London when she was 1. Prior to becoming an actress she was a model.  She is soon to hit the screens in August as “The Baroness” in G.I Joe: The Rise Of Cobra.

She is Sienna Miller
