How do you go in traffic with the scooters? do people get a bit too close for comfort?

same as with a motor bike. the drivers don't give you any more or less room.

Sweet man, I was looking at them too but they are quite rare here. How long have you been riding?

Got the bike on my birthday (present for myself =]) so since the 4th of July. Previous to that i've ridden scooters/indian sports bikes in India. When i was a bit younger me and a mate used to thrash a lil 80cc yamaha around. So that my experience.

Yourself?

Had the bike for a few weeks. Basically no experience other than a 10 minute ride of M500s Honda 50 thing when I was 15 or so.

I was riding dirt bikes in the outback for a living when I was 13 - cow chaser. :D  Bought my first (and only) bike at the time, a 250 Kwaka - only way I could get going was leaning at like a 45 degree angle, shove off with my foot and give it some stick :eek: 

Ended up quite the stuntman on dirtbikes, only time I ever put it down was when a cow hit me :irked:

Man I'd love a bike now but I don't trust myself - the whole organ donor in a power ranger outfit doesn't do much for me either...  I can just picture ending up as a half-mile long chalk-outline within a week of mounting a crotch rocket. :?
