I'm on my way. I've gone from 1200cc Kawasaki, via 650 BMW GS and Yamaha T-Max, to my present bike, a 300 GTS Vespa. 90% of my riding is on tight, twisty Cornish lanes, visiting beaches and just generally chilling on two wheels. I used to be an all-year-round commuter and Sunday rider but now I'm retired and don't need the weight or power I enjoyed previously. I can ride my Vespa anywhere whenever I want to, the twist-and-go transmission makes me wonder why I ever thought manual gearchanging was anything other than old-fashioned and the light weight makes mauling it around on the drive or in the garage just so easy. I'm 73 now and can't see why I shouldn't be riding for years yet, God willing.
Look for the happy medium - she's out there, riding her Vespa!
