Another Update

I've been really busy between the shop and work.

But, I did get one hell of a gift this week, three weeks late, but hey.

A truck load of awesome right there.








What's in the box?







Here she is in all her glory.








So after a long wait I'm finally on the scooter I wanted. I've already put 140 miles on it and I've had it for less then 48 hours.

Awesome.

Good News!

I know am running my own scooter maintenance, performance, and restoration shop, Eazy's Scooterwerks.

Me and Jake finished working out the details of our partnership today.

I've already got a scooter ready for me to work on starting tomorrow.

I'll get pictures of my new digs.

Hopefully the Stella (which I've decided to name Louise) will be here next week.

The weather is getting gorgeous

I've been reading about a few other long distance scooterists and I feel utterly inspired.

My 5000 miles seems measely compared to a 20,000 mile trip to make a peace sign, a trip across the country on Route 66, or PJ's trip along the east coast.

I would love to do something like that.

I find it interesting that out of all these people who claim to be hardcore scooterists there are very few who are willing to ride more than just around their own town. A scooter club from Boise is planning a ride in West Yellowstone in August and they seemed somewhat surprised when I asked if they were riding from Boise or not. Some of the Utah guys think I'm nuts for the Provo run I am planning. I keep finding bigger and better runs. Once my Stella is here and broken in I feel it's going to be like opening Pandora's box.

As a side note I am looking into opening my own scooter shop, just doing performance and maintenance crap, as well as restorations. I'll post when I have more info on that.

Whew-Hew

It finally warmed up. Snowed clear til May 1st but it finally has seemed to lighten up.

So I'm up about 400 miles, and my Stella should be here next week.

STOKED!!

Expect more updates now that I can actually ride.

Still Cold

So an update, haven't been on in a while. I've been working the 6am shift so I've been tired and it's been snowing/cold for the last little bit so I haven't been riding too much. I've put about 50 mile on my scooter before but like a moron forgot to take a picture of my odometer so they're not official miles. When it stops raining I'm going to go take a picture. I also stayed off my scooter because they thought I had some problems with my brain. Turns out I'm going to be fine just need to watch what I eat and figure out my sleeping situation.

10 degrees

It was about 10 degrees when I left the house this morning... on my scooter. I froze my balls off but it was worth it.

I'm getting anxious

I received a catalog from scooter-works today. They are a scooter parts and restoration company from Chicago who also owns Genuine Scooter Company. There's a lot of pretty things in there. I sent Jake an email to see if he knew when my Stella will be here, no response yet. I have no internet at home right now, so I'm posting at work. Maybe tomorrow I'll break out the scooter for a little cruise.
