Just went out for what I thought would be a record run. With a Speedo, flip-flops, and my license I was down to a svelt 103#. However, I didn't account for a low fuel tank. I was runnin' on fumes! I think the low fuel pressure killed my top end. 65mph was all I could get. Though 1 mile from exit to exit on Hwy 100 was all I had. Might need a longer stretch to build up steam. Stay tuned.
Bob & the fastest stock Stella on Earth.
I'm picturing Bob, in Speedos and in his best Rollie Free impersonation, going down the freeway.
Gonna need another double bourbon to wash THAT image out of my mind.
i propose to organize a race between Bob and I from the broadway exit on 94 E to lake calhoun. NO HOLDS BARRED!
A good mix of both worlds, shitty highway driving and shitty city driving...
113...whatever dude, i'm like 5'6"!!! Less wind resistance!
I just dropped my spare and i think i'll add 5mph to my top end...i heard it on stellaspeed...once i get the footpegs, i'll be at +7 1/3 mph.. what's up then?
bring it, stockie.
p.s-i think you should come to the tuesday ride next week.
p.p.s.-i think ALL OF YOUS should come to the tuesday ride next week...
I think we're watching life imitate art here. When Bob's "becoming" is realized and he reaches his target weight of 73 pounds and effectively becomes something the scooter recognizes as nothing more than an accessory - kind of like The One Ring using Gollum as a vehicle to get around - there's no stopping that fucking scooter from rolling down the road like the Road Runner with flames and smoke in a blur of impossible motion. He/it will hit Light Speed and become pure energy.
It seems possible that if he gets a better Speedeometer, he can go faster than even that - because everyone knows you can never go faster than the largest number on the Speedometer unless, of course, it goes to 11 - 11 is, clearly, better than 10. Eventually, he'll be getting to his destination before he left. He'll have opened Scooterville before he opened Scooterville and I would have never had to buy that Silverwing or Bajaj, instead buying a Stella in which case I wouldn't have a wheel pulse in the front assembly of my Bajaj.
It occurs to me that he'd buy the winning Lottery Ticket before it is even printed and he'd never have opened Scooterville, instead having so much money he'd have been tempted to Franchise a Vespa dealership except hiring really nice, normal people and Bajaj and Stella would be unheard of in Minnesota much like here in Chicago.
Earth would enter another Scooter Ice Age and that would suck because everyone knows skinny people hate the cold.
Damn you, Bob. Damn you.
Oh, by the way, I'm hoping to bring my Lambretta in to Scooterville on the Friday morning before the Du so you guys can give it annual service and inspection in order to play in the Du. Is this doable? If so, will you please make sure that anything the machine requires that isn't standard is available? I'm not sure if it uses regularly available oil or whatnot which is why I ask.
I am getting so excited about seeing you guys and doing the Du.

Wow, apparently I missed a community high last night since I last wrote. I'd ask if you have any left, but apparently it's all smoked out, judging by the messages. Next time could you all clue me in before you bong it?
