Roadkill: April 2003

Towards Chau Doc, Cambodia
Apr. 28, 2003, 5:48 PM

When we last tuned in, Richard was madly veering off towards Chau Doc and on to Cambodia after some scootRS upgrades to his VLB. Would the bike make it? Would he make it? Let's see:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Just wanted to let you know I made it back, no problems. The scooter is much improved -- runs like a Camry. I rode out to Long Xuyen and then to Chau Doc, and after a bit of exploration, took a boat from there to Neak Luong in Cambodia. In total about 600k for the trip. Should have done something about the hard seat too. [....]

If I get my act together I'll put up a few pictures on the web, including one of the guy in Neak Luong who carried the Vespa up a steep plank and then the muddy riverbank on his back, holding it by the floorboards.

Cheers and thanks again,
Rich

Not having really used Internet Explorer for about two years due to the existence of far superior browsers, we just noticed the ugly blue boxes around picture links in IE.

OK, fixed a bunch of that up; the ones in Roadkill will have to wait for a little regex action after lunch. As usual, hit refresh to get the latest stylesheet.

While we were at it, we tuned up the Photo Library so you can easily view similar scooters after a search, and added some nicer borders and dividers here and there.

Lambretta SX200
Apr. 23, 2003, 10:47 PM

You decide:

SX200, nice original color, original disc, gray Italian trim, standard exhaust. Coming to a Scandinavian near you...


SX200, nice racing green, hydraulic disc, stainless steel trim, tuned exhaust. Coming to a Brit near you...

Scooting to Cambodia
Apr. 17, 2003, 10:50 PM

And he's off. -Scooting to Cambodia.

We don't get many visitors driving in from other countries. In fact, this was the first. Richard endured 9 hours from Phnom Penh on his VLB, somehow convincing Customs to let him bring his scooter into Vietnam, and stopped by for some parts. We ended up converting him to a 12v CDI system with halogen lights, new shocks, glovebox, rear spare, and some other goodies unavailable there.

He's now off back home to Phnom Penh via the ferry up the Mekong at Chau Doc. Good luck!

A waste of a VBB

Hmmm, not sure exactly what this is, but it is one heck of a waste of a VBB.

Shipping calculator
Apr. 15, 2003, 11:54 PM

We've tuned up the shipping calculator a bit. It now displays the options from cheapest on down, including an option from Vietnam for regular mail over 2kg. That should help with some cheaper shipping sometimes.

Let us know if there are any problems.

Does it look like someone punched a hole in our website? That's called “web development”. Just hit the refresh button to get the new stylesheet.
