After years of attempting to not get my driver’s license I am finally going to be mobile. Before you think it, I’m not getting a car – those still scare me, I have purchased a Scooter. A very nice one at that.
Now comes all the things that go with getting a scooter like:
- Does it need to be roadworthied, I hope not.
- Licensing and registration into my name – my first vehicle
- Getting all the paraphernalia like helmets, jackets and gloves, fun and exciting times.
Once I have everything together and sorted out I can move on to learning to ride. Apparently it’s just like riding a bicycle but you don’t have to peddle. I am so excited because this is just going to open up a whole new world for me. I can’t imagine not having to wait for public transport or relying on other people. I will become master of my own time for a change.
So having had the first lesson and riding by myself around Plumstead I am even more excited. My thanks goes out to Ricky for helping me get the scooter and the patience he had teaching me to ride. What a thrill it was to get up to 70km an hour down Southfield road, don’t laugh that’s fast for my first time.
Now just to get the scooter roadworthied and to spend some more time in the saddle practicing and I will be ready to go.
World look out cause I’m finally mobile.
