Scootie!!

Look at this beauty!! A Piaggio BV250. Gets 60+ miles to the gallon and hits top speeds of 75mph! I can't believe I bought it!  It's an automatic (no messin' with a clutch or gear shifter) but it's heavier than I thought.  Noah got many chuckles watching me get all sweaty trying to maneuver it in and out of tight places.
Getting geared up for the ride! (Scared out of my wits!)  
Riding someone's else's motorcycle for practice was one thing; taking off on my own (expensive) brand new bike was a whole different experience. It will take some time but hopefully soon I'll be riding like a pro!

And yes, to anyone asking the question: I have all the necessary gear. ATGATT: All The Gear, All The Time!

Duuuuuude! I love it!!! You will get used to it in no time--the weight, the gear, all of it.

Congratulations! You've always had the balls for stuff like this. Noah may chuckle but remind him that he'll be riding the nerdy Honda to work and you'll be riding in style. :-P

I love you!
