I'm Alexander (1989) from Serbia (Google it). I folowed M13's videos on YouTube so i decided to join this community. It looking to me as a good place to hang around
What about me and my scooter? Okey, lets start with my story:
I hated two wheels, but realy for a few reasons. My first contact with them was before, maybe 10 years when uncle give me a ride on Kawasaki Zephyr. He wanted to scare me with agresive riding and he did it sucessfuly. I was scared so much, that when i get of the Zephyr, my legs were shaking. I say to myself, thats my first and last contact with two wheelers. That worked before few years after i get driving licence for car. Because of low payments i could purchase car, but i needed some vehicle to get cheap from point A to point B. What vehicle could be? You guess, it's a scooter
I searched my scooter for about year (including earning money). It taken so long because i wanted something that is unusual, with style, something that extending my character. I tryed few scooters and i like the feel when riding and freedom that it gives, so i liked it alot. Its very different when u feel machine by itself. So, what i purchased for first machine?
Her majesty, Aprilia Habana 50:
I love retro style and relaxing driving so i immediatly get in love with Habana
Also, its big scooter and riding position is excelent for tall people like me (194 centimetres). Some scooter were just like toys to me, i mean by size.
I will put few word about my Aprilia:
Manufactured at end of 1999., its powered by 50 Morini horizontal engine, and, it has 27,660 kilometeres under the wheels. Right now im doing some preparations for season. I buyed new rear tire (Dunlop GT301), 1 liter of semisynthetic Motul Scooter power. I just need to check belt, rollers and brake pads. Its one afternon of job, not big deal.
I dont have any equipment yet except helmet, i buyed new one, HJC CS R1 to protect me and, i use leather jacket and some ordinary gloves.
Here's pic of helmet:
So, that is it, my very first machine and very first season. When i buy a Habana i started like my private log of, what i did it today, what parts i changed, what happened this day... Simply, i write all stuff that i do and what are happened to me like owner of scooter. So it will be to read all that after season, i wil post it somewhere. If u want ask me something, feel free i wll respond.
