Roadkill: May 2003

Scoot Quarterly vs. Heidegger
May. 30, 2003, 5:35 PM

Rain. And when it does, it proverbially pours. New Scoot Quarterly arrived today in the mail, along with three Heidegger books, one of which, Basic Problems of Phenomenology, has a sticky note attached, saying “If you digest this book, your movements will be light. Consider it a cleanse.”

Hmm, maybe we should eat first.

Hover scooters

If looking for a vehicle with slightly more versatility than the scooters we offer, say one that can hover for two hours or so, you might be interested in this.

Vespa GS160
May. 22, 2003, 11:15 PM

Nice update on the very special GS160 we did:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The scoot is going just fine - all run-in now and getting a familiar feel to it that is very endearing. The GS is used nearly every day to take me along a beautiful stretch of road from my village house in the New Territories next to the sea and beaches, through open countryside to a subway station on the edge of the urban area. Total travel time round 20 mins - maybe all too brief but in HK this is real good riding.

We see from our World Scooter News that a customer of ours made the newspaper:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When people see it, they honk or wave. At the light, they'll roll down their window and ask me about it. I always get comments.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes, but what about your scooter?

San Francisco scooters
May. 9, 2003, 11:10 AM

In San Francisco, they're mad at City Hall:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“We have to make sure that City Hall understands that we have an agenda,” said Chris Dolan, a motorcycle-riding lawyer with the San Francisco Motorcycle and Scooter Coalition, which organized the noontime rally.

That agenda, outlined in a Bill of Rights that supporters hope will be adopted by city officials, calls for allowing for more designated motorcycle parking spaces on the street and not enforcing the law that prohibits “responsible” motorcycle parking on sidewalks.

Free Vespa scooter
May. 3, 2003, 1:58 PM

If you take a look through the Scooter News stories in the archive, it makes you wonder if anyone actually buys a new Vespa. Most every story is about a free scooter from Vespa. Apparently, if you just have the patience to wait long enough, you've got a good shot at a free one somewhere.
