Back in February I finally convinced Barb to go biking with me. She was pretty nervous to start off with. (So was I nervous too, I've never driven with a passenger). She even started to enjoy it and eventually bought her own helmet, jacket and gloves.
Then back in July we saw were looking around online and saw the Piaggio scooters with three wheels. She thought she would be comfortable riding a three wheeler. So about this time Barb headed over to the Queensland Transport website, took an online test and got her motorcycle learners license. Unfortunately the Piaggios are almost $10,000. We also looked at the CanAm Spyders but they were even more expensive. Did a bit more digging around and found that Yamaha also makes a little three-wheel 125cc scooter called the Tricity. We found a used one at dealership on the Sunshine Coast. On 1 August Barb became a motorcyclist.

Just this last weekend we did a Sunday afternoon drive through Bargara, Gin Gin and Childers. We kept to the back-roads as much as possible because they are much more pleasant way to travel and you see interesting stuff. On the way to Gin Gin we stopped at the Mystery Craters. They are just a bit bizarre.
As on most rides, Barb has Phil the Penguin as a companion. If the wind catches him right, this little flippers flap in the breeze.
