Normally I'll hide the scooter in some bushes and come back in the van and collect it. But I pay for the tow service anyway as a 'just in case' so I thought I may as well use it. The other option was to pillion about 70km back to my mate's house.... for some reason my hips are not built for being a pillion and seem to get quite painful after a short distance.
I've done the push-with-your-foot-thing too. It's a lot harder than it looks!
