FORMER biker Thomas Kemp thought his motorcycling days were long behind him – but aged 93 he's back on the road with this 'Harley-style' mobility scooter.

Thomas, from Poole, wanted to continue his passion for motorbikes, having "owned them all" in his heyday.

His favourites have included a 1000cc Ariel Square Four and a classic Triumph Thunderbird.

So when he noticed a TGA Supersport mobility scooter while shopping in Poole, he knew he had to have one.

"I may be 93, but my scooter makes me feel 43," said Thomas. "With lockdown restrictions easing I have been putting on my old army shorts, which still fit amazingly, and drive down to the seafront.

"I’ve been going around the block a few times during the day or going to the shops now and again.

"You’ll never stop me walking, I’m still full of energy however my scooter is such fun and great for longer journeys.

"Now I’ve got my wheels I’m ready to pack up driving."

The three-wheeled scooter, which boasts motorcycle styling, is also a popular choice with the Disabled Ramblers Association, thanks to its big wheels and 30-mile range.

Thomas said: "I am still pretty fit however my Supersport has given me an extra lease of life.

"My doctor always jokes that he can’t believe there is nothing wrong with me at 93. I don’t need glasses, don’t use a walking stick and have a full head of hair.

"Maybe it’s because I’ve never smoked or drunk alcohol.

"I only drink fruit juice as well, no tea, no coffee. Looking after yourself is really important such as keeping active outdoors.

"With the combination of gardening and driving my scooter by the sea, I remain content and positive.

"Moaning and groaning is a waste of time in my book, my Supersport is fun, ideal for larking about a bit.”
