Didn't that happen to someone when the Winter issue came out?

Me, I just keep forgeting to buy the damn thing. I'll usually pick it up and
place it on the counter to be purchased, only to forget it and then remember about the time I'm half way home.

Yeah, it might have been me the last time also. I read things like "will be at retailers by Presidents day" and assume that it might actually happen like that.

Oh well, I'll probably just stop by later for a copy. Or occasionally Shinders in Roseville stocks it.

I just got in to pick-up my winter issue of Scoot! Quarterly last Thursday. Nice write-ups, by the way, on Skööter Dü and the Duluth Blister Run.

Should be a nice description of the blister run, I plagerized the heck out of yours and Grant's description.

A warning: If you write something up the night before deadline while drinking brandy and submit it to Scoot Quarterly - they print ALL of it.

Which is pretty much how I submit all my MMM articles.

Your were drinking, Brad? I just thought you spoke funny. :-) It is/was a great write up.

Yup, I have a weakness for Kemps Moo tracks and Korbel Brandy. See, now I'm ready to have my scoot profiled! "It is a GS with a 210 kitted Malossi. Notice the snappy two-tone paint with clearcoat. It was applied by a local craftsman who moonlights as a tatto artist. Cruising speed is 55 mph, top speed is 74 mph. My other scoots owned include a 74 Super and Fuji Rabbit. In 1963 I owned an cushman to deliver newspapers"

We should do a thread of fake scoot reviews.

When I sent it in, I knew it was over the recommended length, so I just told April to "edit as she saw fit." So they put the whole thing in. Maybe because one of the letter to the editor writers said that all the reviews read, came to rally, got drunk, got naked, was hung over, went home, had great time. Not that I'm against anyone doing that if it works for them. But who would want to see a middle-aged overweight naked drunk man on a scooter? So the Duluth Run worked for me.

Pretty neat in hindsight, our little ride getting all that space in Scoot. I did get a patch and a free magazine out of the deal.

Starting with this one. I so love the pic of the scooter arriving on a "ship".
And the quote "The combination of unbeatable power and nothing else will make the Dante Inferno an instant classic".
Can anyone identify the actual scooter (sans wing)?

There's one in the DeVries garage that looks similar. So similar that there was no need to resort to photoshop!

I had two of those in my garage!

They have some very questionable design practices... rubber band suspension, motorcycle engine with chain drive and they love to rust. Worse then Datson 280Zs!

Brad you introduced me to the kids, but not the scooters! Darn! Man, I didn't know you had a collection. A Fuji Rabbit! Those are cool........If I wasn't a man burdened with house payments ect. I would try to get one of those myself.... :-)
