I bought a motor bike! It's red!!!
|My new postie bike - Honda CT110 outside the shop|
I have wanted one for years and years, and last Summer I had a push bike with an electric motor powered with a rechargeable battery. It was a joy to ride but bit by bit, its performance has deteriorated and now, it's a heap of expensive junk that doesn't go anywhere. I must add that walking long distances is diminishing these days because of arthritic pain of one kind or another.
What I have purchased is what we call in Australia, a Postie bike. The postal delivery is done on these small, tough motor bikes. Now that I no longer live in the city, I want a motorised bicycle to take me to the village for milk, the beach for a swim, or the Estuary to take photos. I'm so excited about delivery next Thursday and then getting my Learners Permit the following day.
As they say, you won't see me for dust.
