This article reminds me of the major fun I have had in the Bahama's on scooters. Without serious go one must concentrate on late braking, cornering speed and of course killer drives out to keep in the draft (35mph!) on the straights against comrades with, ahem, less substantual builds. The temptation to try and run wide open through the turns almost always seems to lose out to a "confidence lift". I'm smiling just thinking about riding the Derbi (with 70cc kit of course) but much like spending quality time with a "Big" girl I wouldn't want my friends to see me "doing" it ;-).
