Hi all.
My scooter is an old Honds Silverwing that's been in my care for about 5 years.
Prior to that it has always been sports touring bikes and big trailie bikes for me so the scooter is a new kind of bike for me, but I'm convinced. There will now always be space in my shed for a scooter.
I live in a small town in the North Pennines in the UK so I'm surrounded by sheep, some fine riding roads and very little traffic.
The downside of living out in the sticks is that the nearest bike dealer is a long way away so I do most of my own servicing - fortunately the Silverwing is very easy to work on.
And I'm retired from that work thing, I just thought I'd mention that to wind the smug factor up another notch

Welcome from Athens, Greece.
Had to go have a look at the map to see where the North Pennines is. Yup, just about 2 miles West of "Somewhere Over There". :D

... snipped ... Had to go have a look at the map to see where the North Pennines is.

Me too. Read about the area and it sounds like a wonderful place to go countryside riding.

There is some wonderful riding round here and it pretty traffic free too. I don't know if this forum supports photos but if it does, and I can figure it out, I'll post a few.
