    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

        Actually, the video goes some way to perhaps explain why most scooter riders you see on the road are acting like dickheads. It's just part of the whole scooter riding thing.... they bring out the hoon/clown in you

            Heh.

            The near-highside bit reminds me of riding my scooter for the first couple of kays with about 0 psi in the rear tyre A few people who saw it could probably attest that it was bucking me around a bit hahaha

                Ha that was a classic

                Scoot freo are the people to use in freo. You can hire scooters or these little 3 wheels buggies. Right next to the round house and port authority builiding.

                Last time hired one the thing broke down on me in traffic.....NOT COOL

                  yeah and dont wear your bike gear or bring your own helmet. he almost didnt let me hire one coz he thought (knew) i was gonna do stupid stuff. it kinda gives it away though when you pull up on a bike and ask to hire a scooter...
