FULL DISCLOSURE: "Lickers split" is my girlfriend, Dr. Pam Black. She adores my writing the way a father adores his six-year-old's crayon drawings.
Look for my stuff on refrigerator doors...
As an MD she has seen the truly horrible results of careless riding, no helmets, and cagers not paying attention. She has NOT YET made a decision whether she will EVER join me on the back of a SCOOTER not a MOTORCYCLE, just running around Sun City.
Me personally, I hope to see her riding HER OWN red Vespa one of these days. She's got a short commute in Albuquerque and with the great weather there would probably love it ONCE she completes MSF and realizes the real JOY of riding, even low and slow.
Plesae do NOT apply any pressure to her on this topic but instead just welcome her to the forum.
