I picked up my new Medley today. The weather wasn't great but I had to take it for a spin around Sydney harbour and beaches. Apart from a few little quirks it's a fantastic scooter. Pulls really well handles great. I'll do a proper write up about it in a few weeks when I get to know it better.

The subtle red color accents are quite nice, especially in the front around the badge and on the rims.

The mighty HMAS ADELAIDE (LHD-01), the maxiscooter of the Australian Navy - an amphibious carrier, not quite the same as an aircraft carrier, but the largest ship of the fleet and very versatile.

I like the red accents and plan on adding a few more like I did on my Moto Guzzi.

It took me a minute to realize the mirror chrome finish on the tank was reflecting a brick wall. At first glance I was like, 'sure the red looks good, but is going on with that tank?!.'

Nice! Bondi Beach on the last shot?

Six years since my wife and I vacationed in Sydney. Stayed in the Circular Quay area.

Nice people. A lot like my fellow West Texans-energetic, enthusiastic, big personalities.

It's fun to take photos of the bike reflecting different things. Sky, ocean, etc.

Yep that's Bondi. Did you do the coast walk? I like to do a parallel ride from Watsons Bay to Bronte that hugs the coast with nice views of the coastline and a great view back across the harbour to the city.
