Genuine’s new line of 1:12-scale die-cast Buddies was just unveiled, and those ingrate MB’ers are already finding reasons to nitpick, heh. I saw the samples, and they look great. Not as great as a 1:12 Blur would, mind you, but great. Scooterworks lists them as “backordered” but it’s more like “preordered,” they’re due in very […]
If you liked our 2SB Articulated Toy and/or the postcard Vespa model that Scooterworks sells, this
I’ve mentioned a few times that PowerSportsFactory has given us a Benelli/Andretti 150XT for a long-term test. I also bought a used Blur around the same time to replace the one stolen at the MotoGP race in Indianapolis, and thanks to a few minor snafus in both transactions, a busy schedule, and a little bad […]
A bit late, but here’s a great collection of Halloween-related scooter images from Spanish site Vespa & Lambretta Culleredo, the only scooter site we know of with a Galician version.
A must-see Vintage Scooter Art & Graphics set on Flickr. Quite a collection! (Thanks, Bob!)
The PGO G-Max game. I can’t figure out the controls, and it doesn’t work in my Safari browser, but if you can figure it out, you can live the 2sb life and feel the excitement of riding the PGO G-Max aka Genuine Blur.
$2,650 for this Astro Boy Scooter friction toy on eBay with 2 days left. Sure, you could buy a real scooter for that, but it wouldn’t be cooler than this toy. Seller says he sold one in worse condition for $10,000… ten years ago. UPDATE: Bidding closed at $3,600, with reserve not met. Crazy. Also, […]
Piaggio USA is targeting college-bound students with the Piaggio Fly, a $50 gas card and a free topbox. When I went to college, a burrito was a luxury item.
A london home design company is selling seats made from recycled scooter tires. They’re neat, but I bet 2sb readers have some better ideas, let’s hear ’em! Comment here, or email us. Send sketches, too if you’re the arty type!
Sharp Teeth! Video! Explosions!
OMG OMG OMG! I heart Achewood. I heart scooters. I’ve been lusting after this Vespa Rally that Chris Onstad painted for years. Now, that very scooter is for sale in the scoot.net classifieds, and it’s going to pretty much take everything I’ve got to not call the dude. Thanks a lot, Matt. A personal note […]
From the Brown Daily Herald (Providence, RI)’s Campus News’ police blotter: 1:59 p.m. A student reported that sometime between 11 p.m. on March 14 and 9 a.m. on March 16, someone poured maple syrup all over her motor scooter in Lot 77 at Brook and Benevolent Streets.
It’s been eight years since our last coloring contest, and the wounds have healed, let’s try it again. As you may have heard, MotoGP’s coming to Indianapolis Motor Speedway this summer, so we’re co-opting THEIR contest to show those cheese-eating, terrorist-loving Europeans what a MotoGP bike should look like.
Oh, man, I need this for the Blur.
