June 26, 2012

The Lambretta Club USA posted on their forum and Facebook that this weekend’s Lambretta Jamboree 2012 has been postponed because of the Colorado wildfires.

Vespa Quarantasei Available in 2013

June 26, 2012

Scooter Station reports the Vespa “Quarantasei” concept scooter on display at EICMA last year will be brought to market in 2013. I’m not a huge fan of the design, it looks like the Vespa equivalent of the Harley V-Rod. If/when it comes to America in mid-2015 (that’s 2013 in VespaUSA years), it’ll be homologized beyond recognition and priced out of reach.

Chroma’s “Scooter Song”

June 21, 2012

I’m not going to start another flame war with a musician and his fans, so I’ll let you make your own judgement about Chroma’s “The Scooter Song.”

From CD Baby:

“The Scooter Song” (track 3) is one of the most popular songs by Chroma. At live shows, those familiar with the song do the Scooter dance while shouting “Scooter” during the refrain.

All I’m gonna say‚Ķ it’s no “Why Don’t You Start.” Swoon!

Thanks for the link, Mad Man Maddox!

Vespa World Days 2012

June 18, 2012

MotoBlog.it reports Vespa World Days 2012 in London ended today with record numbers: over 3,000 scooters, 780 clubs represented, and 2000 members at the gala dinner. Vespa Club Sirmione won the “Trophy Club Race” with over 1,600 of the 1,752 checkpoints scattered across Europe. This, of course, makes Amerivespa seem puny in comparison, but that’s not gonna ruin my fun this weekend.

Amerivespa 2012

June 17, 2012

Just a few days stand between us and Amerivespa 2012 in Lake Geneva, WI. I’ve heard they already have 500 registrations, which would make it one of the largest rallies in North America, ever. Online registration is available until the 19th, and it’s a MUST to get your money’s worth. We’ll be sharing a vendor booth with Piston Ported (and something called “Factory Tools” that Matty won’t talk about), please stop by and say ‘hi!’

Scooterfile’s Stella 4T review

June 13, 2012

I gotta admit, I’ve kinda been hiding from Scooterfile.com because I know Nathaniel’s pretty much kicking 2strokebuzz’s ass. Here’s his Stella 4T review. (We reviewed it three years ago, so like whatever, poseurs! Matt, Brooke, write something!)

TVV: Roy Ellis “You Can’t Leave Now”

June 7, 2012

It’s a day late for a Vednesday Vespa Video, but it can’t wait until next week: Our old pal Laurel Parker, who many years ago directed (starring some 2SB familiar faces) has just released a new music video for “You Can’t Leave Now” by Roy Ellis (of Simaryp fame) with the Spanish ska band Transilvanians. Great tune, much more handsome extras than “Our Town,” and, yes, she snuck a few scooters in right at the last second. Bravo!
