Me and Betty Boop

Greetings all,

I have just bought a Chili Red 2005 Mini Convertible. It has 74,000 on it.

I call my little gem Betty Boop - wife not happy about that. Well she will have to get over it.

I spend 20 years in the US Air Force, four of these years were spent in England. That was back in 1980 to 1984. We seen tons of Mini's and we also owned a Maxi as well.

Well I have been a Biker all of my life and I just made the decision to sell my Harley and buy a four-wheel motorcycle. I remember when Minis first came out they were advertise as a 4 wheel 4 crotch crotch-rocket.

When I decided to get rid of the Harley I know that I had to have a convertible. so I went looking for a Mini.... I have only owned it for about a week but I am really enjoying it.
