After many years of having to ride my motorcycles with ‘L’ plates because I’d never taken a test, and having to do the Compulsory Basic Training every 3 years, I sold the Yamaha (see yesterday) and bought this Piaggio Zip 50, a machine I could ride without ‘L’ plates because a car driving license covers small capacity scooters like this. I had this for a long time during my final years of working and the first few years of my retirement. It was quite fun to ride, the 30 mph.restricter had been removed before I bought it and for a 50cc.bike it was extremely quick, a very unstable 65 mph.downhill on one occasion! In some ways I wish I had kept it a bit longer, there are times even now, where it would be handy to nip out on when Maureen is out in our car, which is quite often, although Maureen would be far from happy!
