It’s been a while since I last rode a scooter in a parade. And it’s been a while since I’ve ridden one that required shifting gears.
It seems not a day goes by without more bad news regarding the General Motors ignition recall. Such things are not limited to cars and trucks, as you probably alreday know if you own a Genuine Stella 125 Automatic.
If you don’t know, here’s what’s up: As reported first by Scooterfile, Genuine Scooter Company is recalling all 2014 Stella Automatics to replace a potentially defective ECU. As this is a potential safety issue, this recall has been reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which will assign a recall number and make details available on its Web site.
Fourth of July fell on Friday in 2014, which for our purposes meant Day Two out of four days of Scooter Insanity. This 27th version included an evening gathering at Café Racer, centered around the raffle of a 2014 Stella Automatic. Which I didn’t win. :(
If you wanted a Vespa 946 but weren’t able to get one from the initial batch, you’re in luck! :)
Bellingham, Washington has this, uh, reputation. People here are into outdoor activities in a big way, which to many means ‘Hamsters all drive Subaru Outbacks, usually with a kayak or a pair of mountain bikes strapped to the roof.
Not quite. Yes, there are a lot of Outbacks running around, but you’ll also see a lot of Honda Fits.
Another week, another highly-anticipated new scooter to ride. I could get used to this! :)
