Polinarchy (Poliana from Philadephia) is the winner of our “When will the Razz fall over?” contest. She guessed Friday, and both Ryan and I were out of town, so we’re not exactly sure when it fell, but we figure it was probably sometime Friday night or Saturday morning. After more than a month with snow […]
Scrambler17 asks “We had a bit of a warm spell over the weekend. Is the Razz still hanging in there?” It sure is. I went over last night and took this photo. I would have never believed on January 9 that the same snow would still be covering the floorboards of Ryan’s Razz, with a […]
RandMcNally has been spamming all over the scooter community, but they’ve got an interesting idea and a great offer: They’re giving away a Genuine 50cc Buddy to promote their new FabMaps, maps printed on fabric that can just be wadded up and jammed in a bag, or used to clean your helmet visor or sunglasses, […]

I thought the buzz was that “Transformers” was yet another expensive plotless Michael Bay nostalgia vehicle that, if the producers are lucky, will be popular with a handful of repressed […]
From Girlbike: Denver Vespa dealer Erico Motorsports is giving away gas to all scooterists this Saturday as part of a radio promotion. If that doesn’t sell a few scooters, I have no idea what will.
the Guelph Mercury(Ontario, Canada) reports that Danny Butler, a 66-year old retired Veternarian who won a pair Vespas in a Mercury contest, has opted to donate the scooters to a charity in Sierra Leone. The scooters will be used to deliver supplies to farmers.
Only if it comes with an antiseptic wipe for the seat.
In a surprise last-minute announcement–days before the rally–Motoplex/Old Town Motocycle Shoppe has told us they’ll be giving away a Piaggio Typhoon in the Slaughterhouse raffle this Saturday night at the Cobra Lounge. Big thanks to Dan and Derrick at Motoplex for the scooter!
