Scootergirl… Pass or Fail?

Scootergirl... Pass or Fail?
Sometimes the planets align and sometimes it is a full moon, the latter has been my week so far. My life this week lurched from one disaster to another (all on foot). Due to overcrowding at the RTA on Friday I skipped my motorcycle knowledge test and went shopping (I have no patience for queues). I then went online and booked my test for this morning at 8.30am. A few days ago a friend asked me if I... 

L Day/D Day Looms this Friday

L Day/D Day Looms this Friday
If any of you have been wondering what has happened to me, I am still on track to get my Scooter licence, I just have to pass my knowledge test and work has been a bit busy lately. I have set aside Friday to go for the test, I haven’t studied but I am going to do what I did in my uni days and cram it all in tonight! It can’t be hard, I have been driving a car for years so how different... 

Day 2, Scootergirl Wants to Cry

Day 2, Scootergirl Wants to Cry
I am sure my instructor would rather not let me out on the roads and he has started mentioning that he does private, 1 on 1 classes and I am sure it is not because he is trying to pick me up. I am sure he thinks I am a complete idiot actually. It’s a bad start, I’ve had a busy day at work and I arrive just in time for class, I’ve forgotten everything I learnt yesterday and I haven’t... 

Scootergirl Finds Her Groove at 5km per Hour

Scootergirl Finds Her Groove at 5km per Hour
As I walked backed to my Scooter after the break, I took one look at my cute red borrrowed Scooter and thought I can do this! I have to do this! I have told everyone I am getting a Scooter, I have to get through this course. Next hour and a half was all about riding around in a circle at less than “driving Miss Daisy speed” and just getting into a groove without stalling because I was going...

Scooter School, Scootergirl Realises She Is Not A Natural (Part 2)
My head was starting to hurt, this damn helmut is heavier and bulkier than I imagined. It was break time (thank goodness!) which meant my first helmut removal move. I had pictured this scene in my dreams many, many times. Hot, skinny, Italian chick in tight, tight, painted on jeans stops in front of a crowded cafe in some quaint Italian piazza where only drop dead gorgeous Italian men are chatting... 

Scooter School for Scootergirl (Part 1)

Scooter School for Scootergirl (Part 1)
Recently I signed up to learn to ride a Scooter so I could become a real Scootergirl and not just a Razorgirl Scootergirl. What was I thinking, really? I have never, ever ridden on a motorcycle, well maybe once I was a passenger on a scooter in Thailand but that was too many years ago, like when I was in my early 20’s. So the reality of getting my scooter licence, well it suddenly hit me on... 

1 More Sleep till launch

1 More Sleep till launch
Hopefully I won’t launch myself over the handlebars on Monday night when I my Scooter riding school starts. Right now I am doing a crash (poor choice of word) course in motorcycle terminology and trying to finish reading the RTA manual that I was supposed to read months ago. It’s always the way, too much Inner West living to do and too much temptation and I leave things till the last minute. I...
