Scooter Boys

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.

Scooter Rally Calendar

January 31, 2002

John Stafford’s put together a pretty comprehensive list of rallies at (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.

Bajaj Chetak pricing deadline

January 28, 2002

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.

Eric Scott Murder Report

January 24, 2002

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.

Spice Girls lose appeal

January 24, 2002

The girls lost their appeal and must pay Aprilia approximately #250,000. Posh’s share is less than 1% of her family’s income, but I’m guessing it’s a lot more cash than Baby, Scary, and Sporty have to show for fiscal year 2001. A predicition: They’ll sue Ginger.

More calendar girls

January 23, 2002

Randall from is selling some cool-looking calendars on ebay, featuring Vietnamese models on scooters. Randall says, “The days of the week and such are in Vietnamese, but it is easy to figure out. Sundays are marked in red. The pictures, on the other hand, are universally understood.”

2sb Milestone

January 21, 2002

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.

January 18, 2002

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!

Da Bears!

January 17, 2002

Even though I’m a Steelers fan, it’s nice to see the Bears kicking ass again. Jedi Chad dug up this relic of the Bears’ last golden age. Maybe Keith Traylor could advertise the 850cc Piaggios?

Supergome tracked down an MCN story about Piaggio’s prototype
