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... 

Is it Curtains for Scootergirl?

Is it Curtains for Scootergirl?
I’m conscious of alighting the Scooter and putting my helmut down on the ground (never put your helmut on the seat), just in case this might get me over the line, such is the fine line I am tight roping to pass. If I took the name of the course literally - “Stay Upright” I would not have to worry about failing, I am proud  that I have managed to stay upright on a stationary and moving...

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... 

Confessions of a Scootergirl

Confessions of a Scootergirl
I know I have been quiet lately but really I have had nothing to report, my love life is still dead in the water and to make matters worse I know it is not going to get any better any time soon. My current excuse would be that all I am doing right now is work, work and more work. So I have resigned myself to spinsterhood and booked another overseas holiday to Italy where at least I will get my bum...
