Hi I have just joined this forum. As you could guess from my subject heading I live in Sydney Australia and I ride scooters. I started riding about 6 years ago after not touching bikes since I was a teenager. When I started I was going to buy a small bike ( like a Honda 125) just to commute when my wife said if you buy a scooter I will learn as well. So i went and bought a scooter ( Honda Lead 100)and made my wife live up to her promise of learning to ride. Since then our scooters have grown in size and are part of our lives.
 1. Honda Lead 100 (written off in accident. Not my fault)
 2. Aprilia Sportcity 200 (sold)
 3. CF Moto V5 250cc ( wife's still got it)
 4. Aprilia SR MAX 300 ( Still got her daily commute)
 5. Honda CTX 700D ( bought this for the wife but she didn't really like it so we sold it)
 6. SYM Firenze 300 ( wife's scoot but his got written off in a carpark accident)
 7. Honda SilverWing 600 ( we decide to do some touring in the country so I bought this to tow a small camper trailer)
 8. Honda Forza 300 ( wife's current ride besides the CF Moto V5).
Besides these our son also rides a Royal Enfield 500 and a Honda SuperCub 110

Good intro. Welcome aboard.
Nice progress in the stable.
Any photos of your current herd of 2 wheelers?
And, just out of curiosity, did you name them?
