Amerivespa 2017

Happy Monday Slow Kids!

While perusing the interwebs about scooter related business, I came across this fun announcement: Amerivespa 2017


July 6-9th in Seattle, WA

Celebrating 25 years of Amerivespa in the picturesque Seattle, this rally will include multiple opportunities for riders to mingle, shop, showcase their scoot, and take in all that is the Pacific Northwest with coffee and culture. If you’re a VCOA member, registration is $60 on average, and a bit more if you’re not a member.

See the website for the schedule of rides and other events.

Anyone planning on going? Let us know what your plan is and where you’re traveling from if you’re planning to make the trip. We’d love to know who is out there representing.


New Year, New Scooter Goals

Hello out there in cyberland!

While having a family and job can really take a toll on “free time”, the passion that is Scooter Culture is alive and well with our Gang.

My scooter-partner-in-crime has been exceedingly busy, as have I, with the usual time sucks. He’s got himself a snazzy Stella these days, and I’m still screwing with the Vespa that just will not live. I’ve got grand plans to take apart the motor to get that done right again. At the very least, she’s safe in my garage, awaiting some spare time to take out her heart for some surgery.  We’re getting there.

What’s cool is that a fellow from my day job is a scooter enthusiast as well. He’s the former owner of a little Honda Ruckus. Now that he’s got a scooter-enthusiast-buddy in me, he’s even more motivated to get riding again! SCORE!

So while we’re limping along through this lame excuse for a winter, we are making eversoslight progress around these parts.


Keep your eyes on the road Slow Kids and see you on the flip side!


Holy Crap!!! You like us!

I just hopped onto the stats page on WordPress (because I just desperately like any task I do to be liked by people… it’s a condition that stems from being the last kid picked for kickball back in grammar school or something) and I just noticed that on Thursday, our daily view count topped not only 100, but sailed to 118!!! This means 118 of you netizens out there actually gave a crap about what we’re sometimes writing about on here!

Seeing such good news, it prompts me to write some more.  We’ve had some interest by others who like the idea of the Slow Kids, but there’s just one slight problem: None of them have scooters Disappointed smile  So, stick tight and you will soon start to see things gelling around here.  And, hopefully I can manage my time enough to get back to going to rides and rallies with other clubs!

So, thank you for the views and keep tuned here!
