Darren’s taking advantage of Sunday’s expected 40° heat wave and clear skies: The weather forecast calls for slightly warmer temps and little to no precipitation until early next week, so let’s take advantage of it! The streets should be clear, and you know your scooter is asking to be ridden. Meet at Orbit Room (Wellington/California) […]

Heather Parker came over last night to shoot some photos of Pudge. She’s so good. Actual scooter content is resuming soon, promise! If you didn’t notice the ad on the site, we’re kicking off the Cold Weather Challenge next Saturday (11/14) with a ride and Berryoke party at the Kat Klub, be there!
Slaughterhouse XV is this weekend in Chicago, a fact so obvious to me that I didn’t bother posting it until now, which is sort of irresponsible of me, sorry. Who’d have known back when we joked about never making it to “Slaughterhouse 5” that the rally would endure and grow for 15 years. It’s changed […]
Patrick has organized a ride to Sycamore Speedway for stock car racing this Saturday (8/22/09). Meet at Johnnie’s Italian Beef in Elmwood Park (just outside the city). Come early to eat, ride will depart at 5pm. Ride is about 1.5 hours via Route 64. Most of the ride is 50mph+, so no 50cc scooters, please. […]
Tonight’s the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, we saw a few last night from the front porch with Chicago light pollution, so if you can ride out somewhere dark and clear tonight, it should be amazing. Darren has organized a group ride for Chicagoans. Meet at Dunkin’ Donuts, 5000 W Irving Park. The ride […]
One of our favorite shops, Motorsport Scooters (aka Scooterwest) in San Diego, CA, has a spiffy new site and a big “NC-17” anniversary party scheduled for Saturday.

No rally season is complete without a Mods vs Rockers rally, seems like every city has one now, but Chicago’s (run by Ton-Up Chicago) gets bigger and better every year. I couldn’t make it this time, but Jordan sent a bunch of great photos:
Chicagoans: Hang out with some Shriners on Sunday and do some good for the community: The Medinah Motor Corps is hosting a Flag Day Open House and Hospital Tour Sunday at the Medinah Shrine Center, 550 Shriners Drive, Addison IL. The ride starts at 10:30, tours start at 11:00.
There’s been some confusion and angst lately on the Chicago lists about changes at Scooterworks and parts availability. Until recently, both the local dealership (and its service department) AND the catalog internet/mail-order business were located on Damen Avenue and called “Scooterworks USA.” Starting last month, the parts business, Scooterworks USA has moved to a new […]
Hi everybody! Here are the details on the Galewood/Cold Weather Challenge ride and Karaoke party this Saturday (4-11) Dinner at 5pm Russell’s BBQ 1621 N Thatcher Ave Elmwood Park, IL 60607 I’ll be honest with you here, this is not the BBQ that made Galewood famous, but it’s a neat, old-school place with plenty of […]
8694 It all started with an email from Ryan: “So the doctor from the Love Boat was on the radio this morning…” Somehow that same paragraph ended with “so who wants to go to the ice racing finals in the suburbs tonight?” I couldn’t think of a better way to end the Cold Weather Challenge.
Chicago’s best Karaoke, Berryoke, is doing a benefit tonight at Frank and Mary’s for Patrick O’Dea’s nephew who was seriously injured in a auto/bicycle incident. If you’ve always loved karaoke but hated the music selection, check it out, the Berrys have everything good. Sorry for the late notice, I always put off posting local events […]
