kate5kiwis: feeling the need for speed

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

That looks like so much fun! I used to go dirt bike riding with my friends and it was awesome. 40 is still young and you should go for it! As long as you can move and breathe then you should live as much as you can! Besides, it looks like you absolutely loved it!

Dude! You totally need to get a Belladonna Vespa! I know Flossy will disagree with me but Dh says we need more mods and less rockers;-) Check out retroscooter.co.nz

Speaking as someone who is hitting the big 4-0 next year... I hear what you're saying. I may need to get a hog myself....

That looks like crazy fun. I've only been on a motorcycle once and never a dirt bike. I'd probably crash that thing and go head-over-handlebars. I just hit 40 in July, though, so I can totally relate.

a-c-t-u-a-l-l-y
i know what i SAID -
but now i think i'm in LOVE
with the tangerine one -
i mean, how PERSUASIVE is this>>>

A magic carpet for two, a car with two wheels, a passport to modernity. A common passion that attracts people of all ilks and warps.

As they say - "a car is transport, a motorcycle is fun, but a scooter is a Roman holiday on wheels."


but is it too girlie to go on Wild Hogs Road Trips on a retroscooter? X

You don't need a 250cc but a 250cc is the biggest you CAN get on a learners licence. "You must choose Sheriff Woody" wanna go fast or wanna look good? Those Vespas are seriously cool!

Can I be you?!
