Roadkill: May 2008

Your scooter parts order history
May. 31, 2008, 3:52 PM

We made a few improvements to your user account's order history for you. We cleaned it up a little, added more info, and now you can make a number of changes to your orders there and have them go directly to the shipping department. Take a look at any of your processing orders to see what we mean.

We also improved the checkout and contact page so you will get a list of current orders to add items to, or past orders to enquire about.

Everything is to make things clearer, easier, more direct and less error-prone.

And just when we did it we got this email comment:


scootRS's informative ordering process is unmatched in the scooter supply world.

Thanks! A few more to come...

Self-serve parts checkout
May. 28, 2008, 7:10 PM

Self-serve checkout We don't get visitors often but when we do it is highly appreciated if they do their own packing.

Here's our visitor from scoot-central, who is probably the only man in the world to actually have repeatedly visited the full array of Vietnam scooter companies - and the word “company” is loosely used with most - to see what is real and what is BS, and then write about it all. He was in town again and stopped by to pick up a small order.

Afterward he put an update on his site's comments about us:

Editor Note: May 2008 - I popped in on ScootRS on a recent trip since it has been a year since we reviewed him. I looked at several Lambrettas he was building for his clients. I was happy to see the quality is still there. He was building up and fitting body parts on the scooters before paint. I have seen the other shops fit the body parts once the scooter was painted which can be disastrous. His shop was also dialing in a customer's new bike with the upgraded AF RB25 kit on it. It sounded AWESOME!

One of the many things I like about ScootRS is that they have the parts to build the scooters right and into something special vs. other shops that do not have the parts and they end up making their own, (Coke can shims), or buy seconds to try to compete but the parts look like hell.

Endurance scootering
May. 26, 2008, 10:48 AM

Julio writes in to let you to know about his long-distance scootering in Oz. OK, it's a Honda but this is endurance riding after all.

Julio Languiller has now achieved 3 world 24 hour endurance records set on Honda motor scooters.

This event is not about speed, it is to promote the motor scooter as a very viable form of transport whether in the City and Suburbs or open country. The focus will be on endurance, safety and economy and as with the earlier records, powered by Julio's passion for motor scootering and his sheer determination to test his own personal endurance.

While having just turned 50 years of age in June 2006, Julio has been riding motor cycles and scooters now for many years both here in Australia and other parts of the world.

Scootering around Australia sets a huge new dimension of endurance to be riding the scooter for 10 to 14 hrs per day for at least 15 days around Australia.

For more details, see ScooteringAroundAustralia.com.au.

The Ferrari red Vespa VBC update
May. 24, 2008, 11:54 AM

Related to our last post, here's another email update we just got, this time from a Vespa VBC scooter customer before:

Vespa VBC scooterThe red Vespa is still going strong. I just got back from my 50km commute to work. Have 3730 trouble-free kms on it so far.

I put a DR177 top end on it to get a little more grunt to haul my 200lbs around. Lots of torque. I still get inquiries about ScootRS so I hope these folks are actually buying from you.

Good to hear.

Snippets of an email conversation with a customer for you:

Lambretta GP200Do you remember the yellow and black GP200 that you featured on your website video as the one that had the electric start? Well that arrived in my home town...
How did people there like that scooter?
Everybody that has seen the GP200 has said it looks like new. The owner says he has had no problems at all.

Good to hear.

Yes, we got the 1604 error emails, thanks
May. 11, 2008, 12:22 PM

Yes, OK, I was the one who yesterday destroyed all the usernames and passwords while changing something at home, then spend hours fixing it at the office when I realized what had happened, then, after fixed, finished by uploading a page with an error and went home, killing the site for the night. Oops. (I swear I checked it, honest.)

All fixed again, sorry.

My bright blue, shiny new, Lambretta GP200
May. 9, 2008, 2:51 PM

Here are some photos of a recent Lambretta GP200 we did along with a couple emails:

GP200 - ID 215Hello everybody at ScootRS, my scooter just got delivered and it is stunning. As I was getting it out of the crate a big crowd was watching and saying how good it is. I would recommend ScootRS to any one who are thinking of buying a scooter, you are a very professional company and sorted my queries out quickly and I wasn't the best of clients, thanks for the extras, Thanks.
Just got back from my MOT it flew through. Everyone was commenting how good it looked Thanks again.

Actually our email service hasn't been good lately, sorry, certainly not the customer's fault. We've got rid of the girl who was doing it. We don't have much time at all for updates these days, as much as we try, until we get more order staff.
