1770 and Scooter Roo

Don't I look cool and bad ass?  Scooter Roo was a happy surprise on our East coast tour.  When we heard about the chopper tours near 1770, we rightly got a little bit excited.  For a few hours we got to ride a chopper, and if you're not singing 'bad to the bone' by the end, there's obviously something wrong with you!
For the bargain price of $55 dollars we got;

  • One scooter with attitude. all were decked out with an individual paint job. I chose mine for the panther on the side!
  • a flame print leather jacket
  • a fetching flame helmet
  • fake tattoos to get you into character
This was the first time I'd ridden anything with two wheels and a motor. I had to drive around in a circle quite a few times to get it right.  Stopping was my downfall.  When everyone had mastered the basics, we took to the road.  riding around spotting kangaroos, seeing the town and trying not to crash was one of the funniest experiences I had on my East coast adventure.  At the end of our journey, we stopped off at the beach to watch the sun go down over the water (one of the few places you can do this on the East Coast) and ate hot chips.

Yes it was very uncool and you look stupid. But you bring a smile to every drivers face (except those in a hurry) and get to be in a motorcycle gang. At least for a few hours.
