Rich Alexander found this broadcast of Scooter Boys by Gareth Brown on totallyradio. I bet it’ll be good, if Windows Media Player ever finishes downloading.
John Stafford’s put together a pretty comprehensive list of rallies at
twostrokesmoke.com (no relation). If you’re looking for Galewood 2K2 info (it’s supposed to be here) it’s not really planned yet, I’ll post it ASAP. If you’re wondering why The Unforgiven are hosting a tribute to the Clash’s drummer on April 20, so am I. And yes, there will be a new Hodgehead list, sooner or later.
Matthew reminded us today that the first US-market Bajaj Chetaks are due to arrive in about two weeks. The MSRP is going up from $1800 to $2000 (equal price to the Bajaj Legends) on February 1st, but pre-orders will be accepted at $1800 until Thursday. Keep in mind that with added charges it’s a bit more than that, but I’m still excited and I can’t wait to crash-test Matthew’s.
Here’s a simple, nifty idea: an easy-to-use gallery of scooters at LookAtMyScooter. Thanks to BSPG for the hook-up!
The official site for VCOA’s national rally, Amerivespa 2002, is up. This year it’s in Portland, Oregon from May 29 to June 2, cosponsored by the Hell’s Belles and Twist’n’Play SC. They also have a nifty logo by Shag.
Denver scooterist and pot dealer Eric Scott was murdered in his home last May. Denver’s weekly Westworld just published a fascinating story about the murder, accusing the Denver police of dragging their heels, and portraying Eric Scott as a guy who did everything he could to change other people’s lives for the better.
Kirk’s photos from Chapel Hill are up on scoot.net. And Supergome wrote a long, good, funny review that I’ll put up someday…
2strokeBuzz is about to get its one hundred thousandth (100,000th) visitor. We’d give away a prize if we were one of those obsessive sites that monitor that kind of stuff, but I’m not, and I only noticed because I was checking the stats for something else. I don’t have any way to tell who the 100,000th visitor is anyway… Oh, what the heck, let’s say, since right now, We’re only eleven short, that the eleventh person to email us about how great we are gets a prize. Keep in mind that it might take me 6-8 years to mail said prize.
Speaking of ’80s Honda Elite pitchmen, Adam Ant was arrested and committed to a psychiatric hospital this week. Does anyone out there have a copy of his Honda Ad? Listen to Dirk Wears White Sox and hope for a speedy recovery!
This year’s Moab (Utah) rally is April 26,27,28. Not much on the site yet, but here it is in case you want to watch Big Dave’s scooter throb.
“Buddy Seat P Girl” sent a link to another cuddly screensaver. They’ve got desktop pictures, too. Cute!
