Motorbike... Vroommmmmmmmm

Well, today, i'm pooping my pants because I'm about to get on a motorbike after nine months of not being anywhere near one. I got my Learners back in December 2005, and just recently bought a bike to start things moving before I go for my licence. Wish me luck... If you see a bike rider wearing a tiara... that will be me Just smile and wave... heehee.

Welllllll, it had to happen didn't it. Around the block from home... one minute into the ride. I pulled up to a complete stop at a round-about, a car behind me. I came to a complete stop, didn't have my foot out wide enough to balance the bike... and there she blows!!! Down drops the bike and my foot luckily loosely pinned. Managed to drag my foot out, the woman in the car behind me asking if I was OK... with a nod of my very bright red head (embarrasment... lol), I attempted to lift what could only be called a dead elephant. Bloody hell, those things weigh a fricken tonne. So, I asked if the woman would help and that was OK. With an almighty heave and a ho, we got the bike upright. "Thanks" I say, and hop back on, only to have the silly bike not co-operate with me. It refused to go back into Neutral. I look up to see a guy had pulled over by the side of the road, and started running over to me. The lovely man... my knight in shining armour, as he helped me tweak and crank that baby back into action.

Sigh... with lots of thank youuuuu's, I sheepishly took off with a wobble and a sigh of relief to get away from my helpers.

I just wanted to go home and put the bike away and resign to the fact that I should leave it to the big boys... but NO... I had to perservere. So, I can happily tell you, I have just spent an hour riding around, in lots of traffic, gearing up and down and getting a good feel for my little beast.

I survive to ride another day!

PS: Oh, for those of you wondering, "But what about the Tiara?" Have no fear, it survived to see another day! heehee

Am getting myself ready to hit the streets again. Been a while for me, but beautiful weather, so it's a good excuse to get out and putt along. Fingers crossed I don't make a nong of myself again... heehee

Erratic you had better watch out for Mustang Sally [Long Haired Chihuahua] if you ever come alongside my van, she hates motorcycles with a ferocious passion. So just make sure you dont drop your motorcycle again as your laughing too hard.

I'll have to take extra care dodging wobbly motrobikes around the streets of Melbourne. Good luck with it though.

herelam51757... sorry to hear about your lover. And yes, at least he was decent enough to stop the purchase from going ahead.

Well, perhaps you need to get adventurous, and get that motorbike licence too!

We can be our own Biker Bitches riding solo! heehee
