Speaking of ScILFs who run scooter shops, POC Phil has opened a new Pride of Cleveland Scooters showroom and service facility in a neato (and huge) former ski shop in Lakewood, OH. The spacious first floor is already full of scooters, and the second floor will soon become a “scooter museum” featuring Phil’s collection of […]
If something has been around the scooter scene as long as 2strokebuzz, it’s fair to call it a Venerable Institution, right? Well, Chelsea of the Venerable Institution formerly known as SCOMO has asked us to let the world know some re-jiggying has taken place, and her new-and-improved operation will heretofore be known as Scoot Richmond. […]
5454 Finally, all of my Amerivespa 2007 photos are in the 2SB Gallery. They’re mostly from Vashon Island (Sunday), with a few from Saturday (including the Adly Lambretta and the Seattle Kwik-E-Mart.) Jordan has hundreds more, we’ll post those soon, and there are a million more on Scoot.net. A lot has already been said about […]
As someone on scoot.net chat said the other day, “In the future, all rallies will be called ‘Mods vs. Rockers.’” Although there were six or eight similarly-named rallies in the last few weeks, we’re talking about the Chicago version, which is beginning to rival Milwaukee’s fantastic Rockerbox, in terms of quantity, variety, and quality. (Nary […]
I’m really freaking sick of hearing about the Sopranos (even NPR wouldn’t shut up about it this morning). I didn’t watch it and I don’t care what happened, but I noticed this got a lot of hits this morning, so I’m relinking it out of civic duty. Also, remember when James Gandowhatever crashed a Vespa […]
Scooter in the Sticks is always great, but Steve outdid himself today, photo-wise.
4203 A few photos from WKRP and the concurrent demolition derby in Cincinnati a couple weeks ago: the 2SB Gallery.
3871 Here are our photos from the 2007 Dealer Expo. If you’re a 2sb member, you can log in with your user ID/password to leave comments and rate photos (it finally works). Enjoy, and look for our story soon!
In the midst of the rash of 2007 scooter girl calendars we’ve been talking about lately (1, 2, 3, 4), here’s a good archive of vintage Vespa pin-up girls. (Via Coudal.)
3756 Ryan dwarfs the Yamaha C3 You’ll hopefully forgive 2strokebuzz if coverage of the 2007 Cycle World International Motorcycle show is a little scaled back this year. The truth is, very little has changed from year to year. Each year there are fewer surprises, less swag, and fewer perks (the bus service to the CTA […]
If you’re reading this site, you’re probably the type of person that happily gives up a day of your European vacation to hunt down the local scooter shops. Chicago scooterist Kyle Hart is too, but he was lucky enough to visit Augsburg, Germany, where the “local shop” is S.I.P.. Instead of the usual modern Piaggio […]
Speaking of VWs (see below), here’s an amazing gallery of VW Bus graphics. Not directly scooter-related, but there are some amazing Vespa paint scheme ideas in there. (Via my employer and Draplin.)
One Plus One Equals Three’s tribute to the motorscooter: All those Vietnamese scooter photos with six kids and a pig, all collected in one place. Nice. (Thanks, Delahoyde. Yes, I got scooped by a co-worker.)
Ryan’s photos from the Valencia MotoGP race. I have a feeling I’ll be fortunate enough to see the Vespa g-string in person someday.
2653 I finally figured out how to prevent personal photos from appearing in the menu bar, so now you’ll see only randomly chosen marginally-scooter-related photos there. If you actually enjoy perusing pictures of my relatives and vacations, you can always visit the Gallery directly, they’re still there (in fact, I just uploaded many new family […]
