    She's seen me through adventures galore, not to mention my bike test and my first "proper" National. She's rescued a fireblade on more than one occasion :rolleyes:. She's been (more than) tolerant of my amateur and at times incompetent riding of her. She's been neglected in terms of maintenance...

    We stayed in a typically Tyrolean B&B in Prad am Stilfserjoch, called the Urlaubsruh(-recommended!) and met up with a friend of the missus for eats; one of the best pizzas I've ever had, although the Tiramisu wasn't to Wifey's taste(It didn't get wasted however:mrgreen:) Next morning dawned...

    A quick note to say Hi. :hello2: My main hobby is classic VW camper Vans, which subsequently got me interested in Scooters from a similar era. The purchase of a barn (actually shed) find 1961 Lambretta Li150 found me needing to pass my bike test at the age of 37. Being almost 6'4" the XL125...

    My wife had a free assessment the other day to determine training needs for her bike test. All round she as asessed as very competent but a few issues to iron out - lifesavers, "swan necking" on left handers and general obsevation. So that would be a couple of lessons plus the tests. How much...
