Yahoo scooter listing
Nov. 24, 2001, 9:53 PM

Just noticed that on Yahoo we are listed in the “most popular” section of the scooter dealers directory, and are the only one there that sells real scooters. Someone has to watch the fort. -Of course, they got our name wrong though. “Vespa”???

Floods, outages

It is never not “interesting” here. One day a flood, the next day the power is out.

USA scooters
Nov. 12, 2001, 11:14 PM

BIG NEWS. We are adding our available scooters in Oakland to the Available USA page. These are available for direct purchase, but will be auctioned with a reserve if not sold quickly. They generally go quickly so if you want one, don't wait. (The mica red vbb noted below went in one day.) We also have our best photos there until we move to the new site, so take a look.

Well, we finally kludged the photoviewer to make it work in Netscape 6. It's a nasty hackjob but had to be done until the new site goes up.

While working on the above, a friend phoned and said a nuclear bomb had gone off in NY. That was the translation from a drunken backpacker to a Vietnamese girlfriend, relayed via mobile. Not having TV, we found out on the internet a few anxious minutes later that it was a downed plane. Not good, but not a nuclear bomb.

Our message line
Nov. 12, 2001, 12:45 PM

If you happen to phone our message line in the US or UK, be sure, as noted on our contact page, to leave your email address because we don't return calls overseas. Too expensive. -Better still, simply email.

I have never seen a scooter that nice
Nov. 4, 2001, 10:24 PM

Very nice email today:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've been meaning to write you since I received my scooter. I won the Mica Red VLB 3-Port on Oct. 7th. Needless to say, I was a little leery to send a large amount of money across the country for a scooter I've never seen, but you folks came right through. When I took that crate apart and saw that scooter, even better looking than the photos, a wave of relief and a lot of respect for your company, came over me. I have never seen a scooter that nice, even at the Vespa Club of America show in Knoxville a few years ago. Even the truck driver who delivered it stayed to help un-crate it just to see it. You have my total trust and support.

One other small point, I took those two forms, with a pencil tracing of the Frame number, to the DMV and in less than 10 minutes, I walked out with my Registration and plate.

Nice piece of work. I'm already thinking of another one. Thank you

If I am on island U and must go to island Z before Tuesday to see the rhesus monkeys, should I wear yellow or red socks to my sister's wedding? We're currently studying for the GRE. -And it is not very nice at all, we can assure you.

Halloween in the Nam. It is still not clear to me which I was, the beauty or the beast. Any help appreciated.

Paypal
Oct. 16, 2001, 11:46 PM

One thing very annoying about Paypal, besides their awful service, is that they pretend to be free, yet aren't and continually raise their fees. They now cost as much as other card processors, so we've added their 2.2% handling fee to orders using Paypal.

We've considered raising prices slightly and eliminating the handling fees, but have left it as-is for now, as we think it is more transparent to you. If you have an opinion on this, let us know.

Our series of self-serving posts about posts continues. Someone was asking if anyone had dealt with us before and the following replies were posted:

Re: Anyone in N.America deal w/ScooterS.com?
Posted on Monday, October 15, 2001 at 0:03AM :

I've had nothing but good experiences with things I've got from them. Randall is a great guy to deal with.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
the prices are right. The shipping can get steep but the savings are still significant. I bought a p200 shift box from them. It's definately not piaggio original but it works sweet. In all it's a good deal. Try them out. It doesn't take as long to get from viet nam to the US/Canada as you'd think.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Had a 65 VBB built to my specs and shipped to me. Positive experience and wonderful product...i live in the midwest and felt very comfortable dealing with randall...like a great neighbor, that happens to be located on the opposite side of the planet.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Very nice parts.
Posted on Monday, October 15, 2001 at 1:22PM :

This GL belongs to my pal Bill The Painter's wife, the seat & crashbars are from ScootRS. VERY nice quality; these crashbars put the rusty-in-the-bag-when-you-get-them "MEC-EUR" parts to shame.

Based on these parts, I'll be placing a large order with them this winter for my own scooters. Mmmmm . . . stainless steel scooter parts...

A nice little thread about us the other day:

scootrs delivers.
Posted by [...] on Thursday, October 11, 2001 at 10:59AM :

just want to let you know that i placed an order for some floorboard rails for my scooter last week, and they arrived yesterday. they look awesome. they are polished stainless steel and bolt into place. i thought it might need some bending and rebuilding, but they drop right into place.
i thought the shipping would take forever, because the items were being shipped from vietnam, but they arrived in a weeks time!
great job and i look forward to ordering again.
do not hesitate ordering from these guys.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
i agree 100%. my last order was quoted as 7 to 14 days shipping time. i got my order in about 6. secure packaging also. great job!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's pretty impressive eh?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
yeah, a friend of mine is building is jet200 in my garage, and he put those stainless steel floorstrips on, and they are totally sweet. no end caps either, it's all one piece!

Neat-o. Just finished the new Roadkill system that will be a part of the new design - the one promised for some time already, remember? All database oriented now, so we can blog from anywhere and you can easily find pearls of wisdom herein. -The joys of internet pedantism.
