I was hanging out in the pretentious snooty mall today and happened to walk past the pretty cool "Creative Kidstuff" store and saw the funkiest toy scooter for girls: Groovy Girls Scooter is a large, semi-rigid but soft stuffed scooter to accessorize your Groovy Girl. Neat. I might get one for my little niece.Posted by jeremy at 05:52 PM
Just discovered an article on the new Vespas in the November 19 2001 issue of Autoweek (www.autoweek.com). The author, Jeff Sabatini, really gets it and he writes a good review:
"When you go to your nearest Vespa 'boutique,' ignore importer Piaggio USA's marketing strategy that sells these motobikes as if they are designer clothes, walk past the 50-cc ET2, and buy the 150-cc ET4. Tear off the modern-looking mirrors to replace them with multiple chromed units, and be happy .... it's not like there's a lack of substance here, just a heck of a lot of style, which is what you want in the first place."
You can read the rest of this really great article online but they'll ask for an email address and password. Use "firstname.lastname@example.org" and "joejoe" to access.
The pictures are now online from the 2002 Motorcycle Show and the Vespa Minneapolis party. Thanks to the Vespa MN crew for the food and beverages! Take a gander at some of the pictures... unfortunately we didn't get shots of the four hardcore members who actually rode their scooters to the event! You guys rock.Posted by jeremy at 08:24 PM
