Slaughterhouse is *so* on

August 29, 2003

If you’re not already on your way, get in your car right now and get your ass to Chicago. The rally kicked off last night with the 2strokebuzz party at Hogs and Honeys (then Neo, which 2sb couldn’t stay up for). If you weren’t there, you missed a fantastic raffle, where we gave away a motorcycle and a signed Carpenters album: “Mmmm, Italian Beef, Love Karen.” See you all tonight.

Slaughter at Slaughterhouse

August 26, 2003

Big Rye’s post on CHIscooterList: “I finally went to the live poultry place and bought a chicken. I had the guy cut it up. I asked if they were open on Sunday and he said ‘from 9-3’ so the Slaughter at Slaughterhouse (sponsored by Ryetronics) is on! The only problem is they do the butchering in a room behind the front counter. I asked him if I could bring people back there to watchOe and he said ok. I’m not sure if he understood what I meant but hopefully this will work out this time.”

Sweet Jayzus!

They can create a million dollar 1,001 horsepower car but I can’t get an indestructable bladder of jalapeno flavored squeezy ez cheeze.

4 days to slaughterhouse 9

August 25, 2003

Wow, time flies when you’re pregnant and don’t have to plan a rally. See you all Thursday night.

The Equalizers

August 25, 2003

A link stolen from People Really Suck: A british magazine article about a gang of Clockwork-Orange-esque bike-theft vigilantes. It would never work in the U.S., where everyone and their mom has a Mac-10.

New SC K^ln Catalog

August 22, 2003

Lucash tells us Scooter Center K^ln (Cologne, Germany) has a new .pdf catalog available for download. German catalogs rule. I’ve heard that the new Scooterworks catalog will be out in January and as thick as SIP’s catalog. Someone on chat said “great, three times as much on backorder.” Heh.

More Bacon in the news

August 21, 2003

OK, I was gonna lay off the bacon news for awhile, but three people have sent me this story. Which just goes to show: “2sb readers demand bacon stories.”

Electric Vetrix rivals gas scooters?

August 19, 2003

From Durso: Vectrix is saying their new electric scooter repeatedly beat a gas scooter on the 1km Peugeot test track. Beating a gas scooter (even a Peugeot) is big news for electric scooters, and their trade-press hyperbole machine is working overtime in a Design News story (Registration is unfortunately required.), but Vetrix’s website hasn’t been updated for three years, and still claims their technology will be commercially available in 2001.

Bishop Allen rocks us

August 19, 2003

ipodicon.gifBishop Allen are playing in Chicago tomorrow night, but I already committed to Hala Kahiki with Chad. Dang. If only I’d heard of them a week sooner. Check out Busted Heart (.mp3) and some other good songs on the site.

Bacon Show

August 19, 2003

More ideas for Galewood 2K4 from the DeVrieseses.


August 15, 2003

I wonder how many BladeZ electric scooters Pride of Cleveland Scooters sold at 5:00 yesterday? 2sb Correspondent Mike Durso was in NYC last night and sent us this gripping photo from ground zero. Anyone have any scooter-related blackout stories?

Sin City Scooters for sale

August 14, 2003

Wanna live in Las Vegas and make a ton of money (at least one weekend a year)? Sin City Scooters is selling their rental business.

Little Steven’s Underground Garage

August 14, 2003

If you’re anything like me, you despise Bruce Springsteen, and that’s part of why I’d ignored Durso for months as he rambled on and on about Stevie Van Zandt’s syndicated radio show. But I finally checked it out last night and it’s goddamn brilliant, it really couldn’t be any better. If you like rock and roll, go listen online right now.

TNG Milano

August 14, 2003

Speaking of Lucash, he’s been working on a story about how Yamaha ripped off the idea for the Vino from TN’G. Good luck with that, Dave, but TN’G’s Milano 125 beat the Yamaha Vino 125 to market by months, so explain that!

Delhi Double

August 14, 2003

“Bajaj to introduce new model of scooters” and “LML planning re-entry into scooter mart”. Thanks to David Lucash, reading The Times of India so you don’t have to.
