Synonyms for "ride"?

I find it fun to note some of the synonyms posters use for "ride".

None of these are original to me and for most I can't specify who posted them but a few that come to mind:

- Scoot (I tend to associate this one with chopper riders) Could be used as noun or a verb I guess - i.e. "taking a scoot on my scoot"

- Putt (again, I think of chopper riders "Took a putt on my scoot")

- Blatting - first read this in an ad for the Triumph Bonneville

- Hooning - "nice bike for hooning around"

- Noodling - see "hooning"

And two I first saw in posts from England-Kev in "Old's Cool"

- A Wander (not "To wander")

My personal favorite:

- Bimble

I think these all refer to a relatively short ride.

Any others?

Ned

To the OP, are we allowed to be explicit on this thread, or are we keeping it clean?

Never gave it much thought.

Can we at least keep it in context of riding a motorcycle and not a living thing??

Okay, I'll keep my mouth shut.

Interesting list so far.

What about "go" as a synonym for ride?

As in, "Do you want to go?" Because if I'm going, I'm riding.
