About kona…


Hello Curvies!

My motorbiking career started when I worked nights as a waitress and lived in a dodgy bit of Sydney. Too skint to afford a car (and without a driving licence anyway), I decided that a CT110 “postie bike” would be a good way to avoid the midnight walk home from the train station.  (The bike was pushed up the front steps on a plank and kept in the living room overnight - yes, it really was a dodgy bit of Sydney.)  My first proper ride to work involved crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge in peak hour traffic, which did make me wonder if the plan was such a good one after all…

Little did I know that the humble CT110 was just the beginning of journey involving bigger bikes, longer trips and even a stint as an apprentice motorbike mechanic.  Nearly three decades on (and after a sad break from biking due to moving continents, acquiring children etc), I’m currently having a wonderful time cruising around on a BMW G650GS and working on my offroad skills.  As an Aussie in Scotland, I am a big fan of heated grips - and several layers of thermals!

I enjoy relaxed, safety-minded touring - think zen, not adrenaline - and have my own business, meaning I can sometimes be available for weekday rides.  I’m hoping to organise fun training events as well as socials and ride-outs, and I’m particularly keen to encourage learners and new riders.  While I’m not a qualified instructor, I’d be glad to turn up and pootle along with any newbie who feels they need a bit of moral support to tackle the open road!

The best way to reach me is generally via email at curvies@fidgetylizard.com.
See you on the road!
