If you’re anywhere near Nashville, Tenn. in mid-June, you might want to take in the 2013 edition of Nashville’s Blue vs. Grey rally. A fun time was had by all in 2012, which saw celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War throughout the South, and even points beyond. You can register via the event Web site, and it’s on Facebook and Twitter as well.
Got a rally coming up? I’d be more than happy to help you spread the word. Send a note via the Communicate page with all the details. And it helps if you do it sooner that the Thursday before the event. Just sayin’.
Happy Earth Day. Saturday, April 20 was significant, too. Something about marijuana (aka cannabis, weed, etc.), which is legal in the state of Washington. However, on that day the Firkin SC in Tacoma held a ride with a Fireball theme. Kevin Weygint caught it on video, which you’ll find after the jump.
Finally. FINALLY, the arrival date and price of the long-awaited, long-drooled-over Vespa 946 have been released.
Almost from the day I took delivery of the PX, people kept asking, “when are you gonna put a Sito Plus on it?” That being the simplest performance upgrade one can make to your P/PX or Stella: Install the pipe, go up one size on the main jet, and the result is a meaningful increase in top speed and throttle response with no decrease in reliability or fuel economy. Simple.
However, this simple upgrade has not been available to owners of 2010 and newer Genuine Stellas, which have 4-stroke engines. Until now.
While many places in the U.S. are still waiting for spring, Western Washington saw sunny skies and near-record high temperatures. Which worked great for Hell’s Fairies Seattle’s inaugural Spring Roll. You can ride with the group after the jump.
There is certainly no shortage of blogs about owning scooters, riding scooters and places where scooters are ridden. Tim Hogan is the author of Taipei Scooter Style, a journal of scooter life in one of the most highly scooter-populated cities on earth. You will see lots of flashy scooters, but you will also see how and where they’re ridden. It makes me want to ride there.
