I just went for my first scoot! Round and round in circles for most of it - we have a big loop near my house, like a very large square roundabout, so I rode round that a few times, then out by the industrial estate and stuff and then home. Just a short ride, nothing taxing, a little traffic to deal with of course... Actually I was surprised how easy and comfortable it was. It felt a lot better than the scooters I rode during my training. Here I am, coming round the corner, look!!

Photo courtesy of Aidan, thanks honey! In my dorky but oh-so-safe helmet, and my father-in-law's old motorbike jacket! It's a good thing I don't ride for vanity. Actually the helmet's pretty cool. Here it is on the couch. I know it belongs on my head, but I find it hard to photograph my own head, it was easier on the couch.

So anyway, I had fun and now I know I can ride my scooter! (I mean, I can scoot!) I was a little nervous - since it's been a good few weeks since I've ridden at all, and that was in a supervised training environment, and I've never ridden this scooter at all. I was kind of supervised this time - Aidan got on his pushbike and came along with me! We'll have fun fun fun till my baby takes my Bella away! (Sorry, Beach Boys!)

You look so cute, Stace! Well, okay, maybe cute is not what you're after. Coooool! You look really cool. Red is my favorite color, so I love that about the new scooter and helmet! Be careful. Look out for the OTHER motorists! I sometimes think auto drivers can be less than considerate of people on motorcycles, scooters, etc.

How could I whine for a pic of you riding your scooter and then not come visit to see this post til now?

What I want to know is, did you run over Aidan while he was taking your picture, like in some of those World's Funniest Video shows?

You look great. Watch out world!
