7622 Finally uploaded my Slaughterhouse photos. Let’s try out this new gallery system:
7262A few photos from Mods and Rockers at The Globe and Delilah’s. UPDATE: Here are Jordan’s and Ron’s photos
From motoblog.it: flying vetrix…es (Vetricies?). I didn’t bother machine translating the text, I’m just going to go ahead and assume that scooter is powered by Adobe.
Here’s a nice collection of photos of customized twist-n-gos from Japan on twowheelsblog. Not my thing, at all, but worth a look.
From one of my favorite sites, Married To The Sea:
Berwyn, IL demolished their famous “Spindle” of cars late Friday night to make room for Chicagoland’s 100,000th Walgreen’s. Like most of us, Ryan and Alison were outraged, so they set about rebuilding it with scooters while the rest of us were on the Hell’s Fairies Spring Roll.
Bob sent this great Honda ad from 1967. The ad’s a perfect illustration of everything Honda got right back then, and explains how they came to dominate the U.S. motorcycle industry at that time. There are a lot of ideas here for aspiring foreign scooter and motorcycle importers (in no particular order):
As usual, 2SB spent most of the WKRP rally with our family, aside from some rapid consumption of rather large bottles of Red Stripe in the basement of the Comet, and a quick stop at the C&D (cheese grits!) to save 2SBmom the trouble of making breakfast on Sunday. Luckily Jordan took some photos of […]
6615 Alfredo Mar, Niagara Rally, 1996 I did an interview the other day with Karen for the awesome Kickstart magazine, and it got me thinking about how long i’ve been doing this (12+ years!), and all the great people I’ve met through 2strokebuzz and scootering. I started digging through some old shoeboxes tonight and thought […]
Speaking of the PI, our friend Jordan Cinco has just returned from the Philippines where he helped organize the third annual Vespa Attack rally. Congratulations to 2sb jersey winner Clifford Certeza (above), president of the Euroscoot SC, who is now also the president and sole member of the the Merciless Tigers’ Pacific Rim supporters club. […]
Also via Rover Eric, via the XYLs: Vespa Service Hiroshima, your one stop shop for Vespa Accessories, machine-translated Engrish, and photo books and videos of naked Japanese girls with vintage scooters. NSFW!
From Big Rye: Al Franken courts the Minnesota vintage scooterist vote.
Ryan’s honeymoon photos from the Vespa factory and museum. The Massimiliano Fuksas’ new museum appears to be dead in the water, a museum employee told Ryan there was a new museum expected to open in late 2008 “near the factory.” Fuksas’ site doesn’t mention the project, either, so it looks like those floating red clouds […]
Q: How many chicks licking ice-cream cones does it take to get 2strokebuzz to care about the Suzuki Bergman? A: I still don’t care about the Suzuki Bergman, and what are those Hooters waitresses doing in Italy?
POCphil hepped us to this great slideshow from the Denver rally. The Quad Cities rally was great (photos), more on that later. (Maybe I’ll write an Amerivespa story someday, too.)
