Double Your Pleasure

THIS JUST IN: Buy a Corazzo jacket, get a hoody or max jacket for FREE! Free? Yes, FREE!

But wait, there's more; If you come in to RevMoto during the month of November and buy your jacket, you'll also receive a free pair of Corazzo gloves with your order.

Now you get, not one, but two (technically three) items with the purchase of your Corazzo jacket.
That's a combined savings of $209.

Offer good whilst supplies last. Hurry (easy on the turns) in and get fitted for your winter jacket and gloves.

Operators are standing by.

The above post is intened to be read aloud, in the style of an infomercial announcer.

You're the Breastes!



Huge thanks to Russian River Brewing for hosting our little Plan B-Cups. Scooters-4-Hooters was deprived of a group ride due to less-than-ideal riding conditions. Did we cry about it? A little. But then we had beer. And beer makes everything better.

A special shout-out to Oliver's Market for the exceptional specimen of the large breastesses cake.

And...the big news?

Wait for it...

Wait for it...

You've raised $926 for Sutter Breast Care Center. $926, people!!! We're hoping to break$1000 before Sunday night.

So thank you. For those who made it to the pub, we thank you for giving up an afternoon and hanging with us. For those who purchased raffle tickets, grazie mille! And for those who showed their support in other ways, props. Thanks for supporting a cause for which we feel so impassioned. It means a whole lot.

Signed,
Scooter Girl

Fine Rain, Have It Your Way



Scooters-4-Hooters has now moved from "rally" status to "party" status. So fine, we won't be riding through rain-soaked vineyards. We'll be drinking some kick-ass brew and kickin' it old school. In doors. So there.

This way the moisture won't ruin my pink hair, the mud and grime won't ruin your get-up, and the "scooter love" of my "scooter life" will finally stop shoving weather forecasts in my face.

Life shall return to normal in 3-2-1

Shout out to: Eric & LaVerne, Laneil, Logan, Natalie, my Scooter Boy, and all the other lovelies in my little world.

New Rules (with apologies)

At Revolution Moto, we actually have no rules. Buy if we did, these would be the top 10.
Please Note: "New Rules" (with apologies) are the result of REAL events.

  1. Please don't saddle-up on one of our new shop bikes if you're 'going commando' under your pretty sun dress.
  2. Please refrain from walking your dog on top of our counter while we're doing your DMV paperwork.
  3. Please don't shove something in my face and say "smell this."
  4. Please remove all raw meat/eggs/dairy products from under your locked seat before dropping your bike off for 2-weeks. In the summer. While you're on vacation.
  5. Please don't drive your scooter into our show room and up to the counter just to ask us a question.
  6. Please don't go on a "test ride" and come back 2 hours later. With mud all over the bike.
  7. If you've been coming into my shop regularly, since we opened 7 years ago, and you're still asking me what it's like to ride a scooter, it might be time to just buy one and find out for yourself.
  8. If you're paying for a scooter with cash from of a wrinkled brown-paper bag, please remove the 'residue' from the bills prior to the transaction. We thank you in advance.
  9. If you've lugged your own motor oil back from Italy and then bring it in an unmarked bottle for us to use for your oil change, please make sure the bottle doesn't contain Italian anti-freeze instead.
  10. While we like to barter, we're unable to take the following on trade: farm equipment, trucks, cars, jet skis, pool tables, kidnapper vans, power tools, stereo equipment, wedding dresses, "favors," worm farms, or burial plots.

The Flub Club



Aw man! I totally know how this feels. Been there more times than I care to admit. Granted, one can sustain injures, however, most times I'm laughing before I even hit the ground. But this is why we wear protective gear. And take a safety class. And remember not to wear wide-leg pants as one, they're so 2009, and two, they tend to get caught on the stand, causing the aforementioned flub.

We give the author of the above posting:
  • 1-Star for riding a scooter
  • 1-Star for posting about another scooter rider
  • 2-Stars for posting this on CraigsList so we could enjoy it too
And, I'd like to say, to the intended recipient of this post, welcome to the club...The Club of the Flub!

You rock it with yo' bad self, Mr. Silly Scooter Boy.

Why Thank You, Kind Sir!

SCOOTERS-4-HOOTERS



Date: Saturday, October 23rd @ 3:00
Location: Meet at RevMoto
Ride: We shall scoot through autumnal vineyards and enjoy a respite at the lovely Jimtown Store
After-Ride-Party: Russian River Brewing for a pint & more

What should you wear? PINK. Besides joining us on the ride, we would absolutely love you if you would contribute in (at least) one of the following ways:

--Purchase a raffle ticket for a Pink Vespa LX 150 ($10 each or 3 for $25)
--Purchase a "Beer for Breasts" t-shirt from Russian River Brewing
--Make a general donation
--Dye your hair PINK (we don't care which hair)

All monies collected will be added to Russian River's contributions and given to Sutter Breast Care Center of Santa Rosa. Last year's total was over $20,000, and we'd love to beat that.

In the meantime, get your scooter ready, get your hooters ready, and invite your friends/family to participate.

Cheers!
Scooter Girl

P.S. Shout out to Christine Tafoya for the most awesome Scooters-4-Hooters poster. Thanks Christine!!!

How many pedicures have you had: Zero, I'm not Metro enough.

Make-this-Monday



A certain scooter-boy I know loves Stromboli. So I figured maybe you would like it too. It's easy to make, requires few ingredients, and feels like a big hug from your Italian grandmother. You know, if you had an Italian grandmother.

Dough
1 1/4 Cups warm water
1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
1 Teaspoon sugar
2 Tablespoons olive oil (I like DaVero)
2 Teaspoons salt
3 1/2 - 4 Cups flour

Combine 1/4 cup warm water with yeast and sugar. Stir to dissolve and let sit for 5 minutes until foamy. Add additional water, sugar and olive oil. Stir. Gradually combine flour until you have a smooth dough that comes away from the bowl. Flour surface and knead dough for 10 minutes. Place dough in oiled bowl, cover with towel, and let raise for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375.

After risen, punch down dough, divide in half, roll out into rectangle on lightly floured surface. Once you have desired size (about 8" x 12"), you may lay out the filling. Repeat if making two Stromboli, or wrap remaining dough thoroughly with Saran Wrap and place in freezer.

Filling
Provolone cheese (Sliced freshly from the deli)
Pepperoni (ditto)
Mozzarella (Buffalo is amazing)
Parmesan
Oregano
Olive oil
Finishing salt (Try an alder smoked salt for a textured flavor)

Roll Stromboli (as if you were making a giant ho-ho), tucking ends as you roll. Slice vents into the top of Stromboli and brush dough with beaten egg. Place Stromboli on greased sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until bread is golden brown. Remove from oven, let stand 5-minutes, slice and serve.

Scooter Girl Goes Pink

Every year, Johnna from Revolution Moto and Natalie from Russian River Brewing join forces to bring awareness to breast cancer and to raise money for the Sutter Breast Care Center of Santa Rosa.

This October was kicked-off by twin-dye-jobs. Natalie's hair was done by fellow fundraiser, Melinda of La De Da Salon, and Johnna's was done by her dear friends Ty & Kernan (with the help of a Westwood Pinot, two Russian River Brewing pizzas, a pair of pink rubber gloves, and a 1970's Playboy magazine). Don't ask.

Here's a few ways to join our winning team:

1. Dye your hair pink.
3. Buy a raffle ticket (Pink Vespa LX 150--signed by Lyle Lovett)
4. Join the Scooters-for-Hooters ride on Saturday, October 23.
5. Participate in Sonoma County's Hair Harvest.
5. Come to the Halloween party at Russian River Brewing on Sunday, October 31.
6. Stop by RevMoto and make a donation.
7. Get a mammogram, for goodness sakes.

Not Your Grandfather's Scooter...Oh Wait


Where: Harrow, London.
What: Mobility Scooter Rally
Why: International Day for Older People

I'd pay good money to see the photos from this rally. Seriously. Still intrigued? Read the article that ran in the Harrow Times.

We should definitely have a mobility scooter contingent for our next rally.
