Two year Moto Anniversary


My beautiful blue Yamaha Vino Scooter - Vixen with her little buddy the doggis.

It's hard to believe today is my 2 year Moto anniversary.  It all started with a 50cc Orange Sym Mio, a test drive, a crash, and only through perseverence and determination did I get my motorcycle license that same year.  I have gone on so many great adventures, met great people and experienced the thrill of the ride.


Happy in my pink helmet.

Congratulations! Does the Vino still get much use or is it your commuter vehicle?

SonjaM said...

Happy Anniversary, and many more miles and smiles!

Richard, I haven't ridden the Vino since last spring. I am however tossing up whether to reinsure and go for collector status on my bike which would make it infinitely cheaper to insure. I am betwixt and between on this because I prefer the power and higher profile of the bike when I am in traffic.

Sonja - Thanks! I am thoroughly loving my motoing experience and hope I get to do a few more trips soon.

I have owned collector plated vehicles. Once you get collector status for your bike, you need another vehicle registered and insured in your name as your primary commuting vehicle (can be scooter), but you will not be able to ride your MC to work anymore.

Congrats on your first 2 years and more to come . . .

Thank you Everyone! It has been an amazing trip into 2 wheel territory and I have enjoyed it immensely and can hardly wait for warmer weather and the call of the road. Mi have decided that in 2014 I am going to start on the path of becoming a motorcycle instructor, it seems lie a natural path or me to take and one where I can share my love of 2 wheels.

Good stuff! I think it's safe to say you've got the bug! Learn to live with it! It's a hard one to kick - but then I know I'm not trying that hard...

You also need to fit an Adv bike into your plans somewhere...
