While we were in Bali in September, I decided that I couldn’t let another summer go by without a scooter of my own. The summer traffic in Cape Town makes it exhausting to get the beach, coffee shops or even the mall. A scooter would fix all my problems!
I found a little Big Boy E5 Revival on Gumtree and I knew I had to have it. But first, I had to get my bike learners license. Things have come a long way since I had to study for my car learners 10 years ago, when I had to buy the book and borrow the papers from a friend – now you can just study the K53 guide and run the practise papers on the K53 website for R80.
So I hit the books, booked my appointment (in Fish Hoek, where the waiting period is only a week) and aced my learners. On the way home, I picked up my adorable scooter and rode it all the way from Muizenberg to Woodstock. I also bought myself a 10/10 cute biker jacket. Freedom! Parking everywhere! The wind in my hair!
