When it does eventually arrive, it will be a national day of celebration...........or perhaps another group ride organised. :)

Mmm, somehow and accidentally unjoined myself here (alright, not somehow because I know how one "unjoins", but still accidentally)

However, now that Mary has got her solar Greenspeed and with the impending delivery of Peter Smiths RV (which must surely now stand for "Retired Gentleman's Velomobile", the time must be approaching when these fine examples of recumbent trikes will be shown off before the gathered and admiring assembly?

More choices! Just the recumbent trike I've been waiting for. It even come fitted with (the optional but illegal) 500w motor. Standard 250w with 20ah abttery pack at 3750 is good package.

That's a help ,thank you. RACQ covers my yo mobility scooters and I already availed myself of that when a lady on a mobile backed out and hit one of them with me on. I was in shock but not physically harmed. It was good to have it taken care of. I guess this means that RACQ may not help me with a flat tire as an extension of my road coverage although they do on the others. I shall phone for the facts.

Mary, I think most of us have (some) our bicycles listed as specific items under our home & contents insurance. This won't cover third party but that's not likely to ever be an issue. Theft & vandalism are covered.

Comment by Mary Martin on September 14, 2014 at 9:21am

Serious question that I had over looked. Inssurance. RACQ has just told me they wont insure it . Also anyone using a GPS tracker?

Thank you all for your wishes and thoughts. Back home after a rest the official verdict is I have died and gone to Heaven.

Hi all, I am selling my Bacchetta Corsa and have it advertised on this site,

I'll wait a bit before posting it on any other site in case anyone here is interested.

I have gone over to the dark side and bought an e bike, its a Pedego city commuter and its just fantastic, the hills and headwinds have vanished. Brisbane is now flat and the wind is allways at your back.

Cheers to all, Ian.
