|This little Piggy cried "Wee wee wee" all the way home!|
Okay I know I am a newb to scootering, but I have been riding for 28 years 2-up on the back of motorcycle man's ride and we always wear gear. Today was one of the most gorgeous days we have had for a long time in Victoria, its about 80 degrees, hot and stunningly sunny. So what did I do? I like the many scooter obsessed and motorcycle addicted riders went for a ride along scenic Dallas Road. It seems that EVERYONE had the same idea. I must have seen well over 40 motorcycles and scooters. Most riders had gear on (the middle aged ones anyway - *the age with wisdom thing) I saw every variety of rider from young to old, 2-up on motorcycle and scooter and then the subcategory TOURIST on a rental scooter. (I guess I am a scooter snob)
Don't get me wrong, I think it is great that the tourist on the rental scoot wants to see our fair island, but honestly PLEASE PUT ON GEAR, something that is going to protect your bits and parts! If you are going to rent a scooter at least wear sneakers and NOT FLIP FLOPS!! Scooters and motorcycles are FLIP FLOP FREE zones.
My preferred scooter shoe is the one on the right - good sturdy leather boots!
JUST SAY NO TO FLIP FLOPS ON SCOOTS YOUR PIGGIES WILL THANK YOU!
