Motogiro d’Italia is a motorcycle touring rally made famous in the 1950s and revived in 2001. The event, showcasing classic Italian machines, is venturing outside Italy for the first, of what I would imagine will be annual, Motogiro America. The oil leaking event will be held in and around Monterey, CA preceding the Red Bull […]
Pete Selkowe’s great Rustic Roads Ride Writeup (say that ten times fast) from the Racine Post Blog. Check out Nitro’s flickr page for tons more photos. The Magnificent Seven SC has planned two great events in less than a month, and their Photo Scavenger Hunt on November 4, 2007 sounds even better.
Congratulations (and thanks) to Alix Bryan, who finished her epic P.E.A.C.E. Scooter ride this weekend. (CNN’s story.) Thanks to the Scoop who was in Crawford for the end of the ride.)
Crystal at Girlbike/ScooterSeatCovers, who just finished a big charity ride herself, is offering a limited-edition peace-sign seat cover to help raise money for Alix Bryan’s cross-up-down-and-around-country P.E.A.C.E Scooter Ride. And Steve from the Scooter Scoop just bought a 2sb jersey. I feel like I should be giving more back to the scooter community, or at […]
Alix B. is still plugging along, deep into her P.E.A.C.E ride, and she’s keeping her blog admirably up-to-date and entertaining. I think it’s working, too; Karl Rove jumped ship yesterday.
Looks like the Scootstars got on TV in Milwaukee. They haven’t updated the blog for a few days, but it sounds like they’re still stuck in Chicagoland (Milwaukee is in Chicagoland, BTW).
Alix B. and her Genuine Buddy are a week and a half into their P.E.A.C.E. scooter tour, and blogging away with gusto rarely seen on epic scooter tours. We should probably interview her or something. In other scooter tour news, Josh and Peter the Scootstars have another dead 50cc Chinese scooter on their hands and […]
48 hours from now, my butt will hurt and I’ll hopefully have some good stories to tell. I was going to write more, but I better get some sleep.
Modern Vespa got interesting today, though this is exactly the kind of information I need before next weekend.
Another great link from Crystal Waters’ Girlbike: “In 2003, Rupert Wilson-Young rode from Alaska to Ushuaia in South America — thatâ€™s over 20,000 miles — on his 50cc Yamaha Vino.” Speaking of Crystal, it looks like Vespaquest and Vespaway are — thankfully — back online.
POC Phil: “Like it or not…we’re turning the Lake Erie Loop into a rally. The campsite is too good for it to be anything but a rally. Run what you brung and be ready for a 680 mile ride-out.”
A Belfast Telegraph writer tours Thailand by scooter, and a Telegraph intern horks the title of Peter Moore’s book.
Jo and Ants of Tuk to the Road fame will appear Tuesday (December 12, 2006) at the Royal Geographical Society in London at 7:30pm to talk about their travels and show a short film. The pair traveled 12, 500 miles across Asia and Europe this summer, raising nearly Â£33,000 to date for Mind, and are […]
Ryetronic’s Cold Weather Challenge is back! The full rules are here, but to summarize, it’s a contest for scooters (no motorcycles, sidecars, or three-wheelers) to determine who can ride 10 miles or more (distance is used only as a tiebreaker) in the coldest weather before February 28, 2007. Last years’ winner was Kent Messer of […]
Reader Bill Meek responded to our “Burgmania spreads” story: Itâ€™s great that a 2-stroke site has information and links about the Suzuki Burgman.Â Hereâ€™s an interesting newspaper article about a Burgman rider (me) and his unusual passenger that I thought you might find amusing. We certainly did. Bill and his dog Sandy have covered over 10,000 […]
