Well, it was a hard-fought match, but Argentina edged France 1-0 to win the World Cup. Oh, wait, that was a typo. I was coming off a long day of breaking rocks in the hot sun, so I nodded off a few times, but was I dreaming the part where Edmilson got tangled up in his jersey for five minutes? I could swear I saw Perluigi Collina smile. I’m pretty sure I was in Slumberland when Davor Suker came out in a yellow shirt and scored eleven goals.
We’ve been seeing more and more new scooters on the road here in Chicago, and it was only a matter of time before a twist’n’go club came along. Vina and I rode to Superdawg on Sunday to meet the 2 Slow to Go SC on their first group ride. There was a good turnout, but I ended up talking to Matthew the whole time we were there, and only got to briefly meet a couple people, including Tim Hugh, who I believe to be the founder of 2S2GSC and the owner of a custom-painted orange Vino. Thanks for having us, Tim, and we’ll see you around!
Back in the late 1950s, the Rockford (Illinois) Scooter Company started importing and selling the Silver Pigeon manufactured by Mitsubishi.
Well, it’s almost over, though I haven’t posted much lately. I’m gonna go ahead and spoil it: Brazil will play Germany in the 2002 World Cup final on Sunday.

SGS, regarding the PVSC rally: “You gotta keep me outta the walk-in next year. If I’m naked, I’m flagged, cause I shoulda been flagged or I wouldn’t be naked.”
Chicago rock-stars-to-be and WNUR darlings The Cells, fronted by ex-2SB-neighbor Cory Hance, have finally released their debut album, We Can Replace You on Orange Recordings. Track it down, you’ll dig ’em.
With a chubby gal like me behind the wheel, it would only be a matter of time before I drove off a curb and sent the training wheels flying.
I just came across a site which has some interesting tidbits on maintaining your P Series. It’s not updated all that often, but perhaps you’ll find something you can use (at your own risk, of course).
The Fashionable Roadkill fashion show is taking place at Corosh restaurant in Chicago on July 2. It’s a benefit for 2SB’s favorite radio station, WLUW, and prizes include a Kymco People custom Onion scooter (from Baron Von Scoot) and clothes from Futuregarb, a new Wicker Park outfitter. Might be a fun time, or at least more fun than a Piaggio Boutique opening, and it benefits WLUW, the only station in town playing Death Cab for Cutie, Pavement, and The Pixies back to back to back.
Today’s Chicago Tribune features a lovely piece on Greg Kinge. BTW, is the headline referring to Greg or Doug as “vintage”?
Apparently, Posh Spice got her knickers in a knot over the appearance of hubby David Beckham’s mohawk during a rain-soaked game with Dinamarca. Read her plan to save English footie.
2sb is thrilled to announce that our news feed has been picked up by scoot.net in our first syndicaton deal. We’ve gone big-time, but we promise we’ll keep on sticking it to the man. In other news, Greg Kinge came and went and the World Cup has been insane, but with Gregs visit, I fell behind on Cup news, but I’ll get back on the stick today. Oh, and I actually did some scooter riding this weekend, that’s a first.
