Definitely Worth Our Weight

As all y'all know, this year's ScooterRosa benefited Worth Our Weight, a local culinary apprenticeship program. We are proud to have provided $3220 to W.O.W. to assist in their continued support and development of our Sonoma County youth. Below is a kind little note sent by W.O.W. director, Evelyn Cheatham to thank all of you for your support:

Dear Roy and Johnna;

I am grateful and overwhelmed by the generosity you've shown in presenting Worth Our Weight with a donation of $3,2220.00 on behalf of the riders and participants of ScooterRosa 2011.

Thank you for your unflagging support of our apprenticeship program. As you well know, young people need a place to learn, develop and grow, especially if they have faced major challenges in their lives such as, foster care placement, probation, learning disabilities and, severe economic disadvantages.

Your support helps Worth our Weight to continue to provide an environment that will help to ensure their success in life.

You rock!

With Sincere Thanks,

Evelyn Cheatham
Executive Director
Worth Our Weight

Many thanks to those of you who came to ScooterRosa and supported this program. We couldn't do it without you (clearly)!

Handcar Regatta 2011

What are you doing on September 25? Coming to the Handcar Regatta, of course!

Should you choose the patron of the arts package (VIP ticket), you will be expertly cared for by Nurse Haught, Nurse Whett, and Nurse Wilde, in the tent of the Ascended Masters (that would be you).

Some of the benefits:
  • Around the clock care
  • Lunch service
  • Entertainment of the musical variety
  • Your very own portrait
  • Cures for boredom, hysteria, and toxicity
  • Healing tonics
General admission tickets are also available for a low, low price (suggested donation) of $8.

Rumor has it, all three nurses are scooter-girls in future lives. Can you guess who they are?

Tune back in for more info. Or...go here.

That's right, we're not from Texas...

But Lexy & Casey are, and they came to scoot about the wine country with us this past weekend. Can I just say, I absolutely love my pals from Texas?! It was our pleasure to introduce Lexy and Casey to some of our gems in West County.

After saddling up on a light blue LX 150 (Lexy) and a red GTS 250 (Casey), we took off through West Santa Rosa, connected up with Willowside and wound out through Sebastopol, for our first stop, Iron Horse. Lisa from Iron Horse (who possesses a charm and hospitality all her own) treated us like scooter royalty and presented us with a special bubbly from Commander's Palace. Oh...then there was the secret trip down into the disgorging room to check out some of the rose vintages that are making their way through maturation. And, as if all that wasn't enough, Lisa served up some fresh, estate-made Greek salads with heirloom tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, and ripe olives.

Our next stop wasn't too far down the road. After passing through the dot-sized town of Graton, we hit up one of our new favorites, Marimar. Holy monkey balls! How is it possible, that I've lived here *this* many years (no, I'm not going to say exactly how many), and I've managed to ride (zoom) right passed this charming winery that perfectly pairs Spanish tapas with their estate vintages. Tucked away on a little hill, one could loose themselves all too easily and become instantly too comfortable--as I did when I shared an extremely inappropriate story involving a first date, bull semen, and donuts. I'm pretty sure a Texas lady (such as Lexy) would never, ever be so crass, but what the hell, it's Wine Country. Bull semen happens--we're farmers.

Maybe it was the talk of donuts, but, after a shady scoot through refreshing forests, we came upon Wild Flour, a favorite among local scooterists, such as the McHenry's, as well as a long list of others who make the short trek, sometimes weekly. Before heading back to base camp, we enjoyed a late afternoon with one sticky bun, one loaf of Fougasse, a couple cups of coffee, an indulging table mate and one of the most enlightening financial/psychological discussions I've experienced. Thank you, Casey, it certainly topped the former conversation--not that it would take much.

Thank you, Lexy and Casey, for a wonderful day. We were so glad to scoot you around our back yard, and do hope that all y'all will come back and see us again soon. Oh, and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Much scooter love,

Scooter Girl

You can have this, but not if you're in California...

Up for auction, is this 2009 Sym 200cc--starting at only $900. Why so low?

  • Can't be the mileage, it has only 700.

  • Can't be the condition, it has only (count it) ONE scratch.

  • Can't be the engine--just broken in.

  • Can't be the style, c'mon.

This orphan scooter was originally purchased in Iowa, making it non-California compliant with our emissions standards. Sad, I know. So here it sits, all lonely and stuff. Just waiting, waiting, waiting, for a non-California resident to take it home and make it theirs.

Please tell you friends. Or, just...

ScooterRosa Report 2011

A huge thank-you to all of our dedicated sponsors, volunteers, and riders who attended ScooterRosa 2011. We were stoked to have many generous sponsors who kicked down with raffle prizes, food, beer, wine, and general funds. A special shout out to the following who made a huge impact on this year's event:

Also, our volunteers, many of who doubled as ride leaders, band members, game builders, referees, drink pourers, direction givers, chalk drawers, hay bale stackers, sweepers (both riding and with brooms), recycling sorters, bathroom patrolers, photo takers, and official party-starters:

  • Dan-the-Man Carls and Days Like Nights
  • Eric-the-Engineer McHenry
  • Loganski Johnson and Trish Ivey
  • Chris Bertram the Keg-Man
  • Mr. Wally Trujillo
  • Ray-Ray Landis
  • Laneil Bryant (our most favorite city coordinator in the whole-wide world)
  • Dr. John Mahalik and the Blue Seven
  • Oz Lang and his mad photo skills
  • Nas & Naj Salamati (and little Sori too)
  • Wilson-the-run-away-dog (and everyone who kindly coralled him)

Big thanks to the Royal Bastards of Sonoma County & Sacramento for their support and especially to Ray and Tina for opening their home as the official Bastard Brothel. I'm pretty sure that's not what they called it, but I kinda dig the ring, so I'm sticking with it.

The scooter love from Leilani Clark and Gabe Meline at the North Bay Bohemian was tremendous. We loved Leilani's scooter immersion piece, What A Scoot, and are grateful for the ScooterRosa shout-out.

And finally, thanks to all of YOU who came, supported us, rocked your bad-ass motor scooters--both new and vintage, and gave to an incredibly worthy cause; Worth Our Weight, for whom we raised a total of $3220.00!

Yay you, yay us!

Stay tuned for photos, stay patient for the patches (soon, soon), and stay shiny side up!

Foodie Bootie

Adding to the cache of prizes for ScooterRosa, Josh & Regina Silvers of Jackson's Bar and Oven & Petite Syrah donated $100 for each of their restaurants. But wait, there's more, they also included a signed copy of Down Home Down Town, a cook book collaboration between Josh Silvers and Jeff Mall of Zin Restaurant in Healdsburg.

Huge thanks to the Silvers for their generous donation! If you don't end up being the lucky winner of this fabulous gift, check out their restaurants anyway. Some of the best food in Sonoma County. Seriously. It's slurpalicious.

And you can quote me on that.

Dainese is Da'bomb!

Shelli of Dainese kicked down with an awesome riding jacket for ScooterRosa this year. Scooter Girl was in the city yesterday and stopped by the Dainese location for a little one-on-one time with some fine Italian leather.

Huge thanks to Shelli for the donation of a gorgeous unisex riding jacket!

Only 7 days left...

And finally...Sorry, Shelli, for the drool.

Behold, the Digital Scavenger Hunt

The upcoming Digital Scavenger Hunt (DSH), during ScooterRosa, is all about creating great photos with you and your scooters, and having a hoot whilst doing it. RevMoto's first DSH was way back in 2004--during one of our first charity rides.

Instead of the typical format of a scavenger hunt where you receive clues and set out to find the item, you will receive a list of photo descriptions and you and your team will set out as a troop of crazed (but controlled) paparazzi--you know you want to.

We've got quite a line-up for this year's DSH at ScooterRosa. While we can't give up the photo descriptions until the day of the ride, here are a few examples from 2004:

Photo Description 1: One Harley dude or dudette sitting on your scooter. Two bonus points if he/she is in full leathers.

Photo Description 2: All scooters & riders with a cow in the photo. Two bonus points if the cow is a SF Giants fan.

Photo Description 3: All riders on one scooter. Three bonus points if someone's naked.

Now, I must confess, I was a bit disappointed that no one got those last bonus points. I'm hoping that this years DSH teams are up for a real challenge. Cause it be getting crazy up in here!

Hollywood up in here!

Brace yo'self.

Scooter Girl, in all of her free time, has written a script for a small film. The premise, which is inspired by some of her favorite local scooterists:

One girl. One scooter. One grocery store. One quirky story of giving and the power to make the world a better place.

Also in cahoots, Ms. Katharine Morelli, local writer and editor extraordinaire, Mr. Will Thorn, local filmmaker and creator of Goreela Productions.

Filming begins on August 19th with a cast of local celebrities, including local scooter girl, Jennifer Mann in the role of 'Cat Lady,' Marcus Myers as the"Big Mean Man,' my boy Steve Cannon as "Store Manager," Marge Jones as 'Distinguished Damsel,' and yours truly as 'Scooter Girl.'

One role still needs to be filled, that of an older gentleman. Interested?

Beep! Beep!

P.S. Huge thanks to Grocery Outlet for allowing us to film on location!

We Like Days Like Nights

Scooter Girl is stoked (or stroked--however you want to spin it) to have resident Scooter Boy and Royal Bastard, Dan Carls and his band, Days Like Nights, performing at ScooterRosa on Saturday, July 23. We love Dan, we love his band, and we're super thankful for their generosity. Yep, they're playing gratis. Why? Because they're awesome, that's why!

Become a fan of their band here: I'M A FAN!

Scooter Dude, Digitale

Mr. & Mrs. Digitale, a local scooter couple about town. They dine and date on a Piaggio Fly 150, purchased from Revolution Moto. With three college-bound girls, they cut down their expenses by eliminating one car and are rocking the 1.5 (one scooter/one car) instead.

Check out Robert's article here: One-Car One-Scooter

See Tom Hanks in Petaluma!

We all know that Tom Hanks is super cool, but now he's even superey cooler now that he's scooting around on the big screen. The Royal Bastards of Sonoma County have put a ride together to view his latest movie; Larry Crowne.

Here's the plan for tonight:

  • Meet at RevMoto @ 6PM
  • Ride to the cinemas in Petaluma
  • Watch the movie (maybe eat some popcorn)
  • Scoot home

Thanks to Ginny for organizing!

Be a bastard, or don't be a bastard. I don't care.

And neither do they. The Royal Bastards that is. Sonoma County's most awesome-ist scooter club has a group ride coming up this Sunday and you're all invited. Here are the details:

Sunday, July 3 · 9:30am - 12:30pm

Larkfield to Mendocino to Guerneville

Created By

More Info
We had to move this ride up one week due to schedule issues. This will also be somewhat of a Bachlorette ride for one lucky Bastard--or should I say one Devilish Bastard. 198 Miles along the coast! The town of Mendocino is a beautiful little community right on the coast. It'll totally make you feel like you stepped back in time. At least before you (I) had all that grey hair and those aching joints. PLEASE NOTICE: All rides subject to change or cancellation at any time. Please check back as we will post it in case of any changes.

If you'd like to join this bad-ass scooter posse, just RSVP on the Bastard's facebook page or contact Ray-Ray Landis or Dan-the-Man Carls through the Royal Bastards website.

Beep! Beep!

P.S. Scooter Girl would like to send a shout out to Ms. Michelle Marques from KSRO for hosting us during the drive-time hour to talk about the upcoming ScooterRosa and the Royal Bastards of Sonoma County. Merci mucho Michelle!

Friday night, date night

Scooter Girl needs a date (or 10) this Friday night. The occasion? The Larry Crowne premier at the Summerfield Cinemas. The only caveat; you must ride your scooter.

Date ride leaves RevMoto at 7:00 Friday, July 1. We'll scoot over to Summerfield, nosh on some popcorn and root beer floats, and swoon over the beauty that is Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts on a scooter.


Beep! Beep!

Best block party ever!

Whilst scooting through the Proctor-Terrace hood yesterday, we spied this lovely little flyer. If you're in the mood...and you could...decorate your ride and scoot on over.

We give this block party four stars. And stripes. And sparklers.

Michael Jackson vs. Mr. Bean

Can your scoot do this?

Whilst all y'all were enjoying your Memorial Day weekend, no doubt gorging on BBQ and swiggin' a little of the good stuff, Eric McHenry, Senior ScooterRosa party planner, was hard at work researching agility activities.

While it may look, to the untrained eye, like Eric (astride his Aprilia Sportcity 250) was simply on his way to enjoy a day of fishing, let me reassure you, that ear-to-ear grin--just another task. According to Mr. McHenry, you'll want to get the following items loaded on your scooter ASAP and get practicing:

  • Float Tube
  • Life Jacket
  • Waders
  • Fins
  • Net
  • Fully Rigged Fly Rod
  • Ear-To-Ear Grin

Now all we need is a cutesy little name for this game. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

And the free oil change goes to...


Dude...due to your winning prediction for our "Guess-the-Gas" contest, you're getting a free oil change, courtesy of
Revolution Moto!
Congratulations you smartie-pants, you.

UPDATE: In true Scooter-Boy fashion, Mr. Ramsey has graciously donated his free-oil change to the cache of raffle prizes for ScooterRosa. Thank you, Sean!

Friday, May 27, 2011

This person is WINNING (in more ways than one)

Only one day left, and with the price of premium at $4.30, our boy Sean Ramsey (who was recently knighted by the Royal Bastards of Sonoma County) is in first place with his guess of $4.29.

With Memorial Day coming swiftly upon us, will the gas defy the trend and continue to fall? Will it rise to $16 overnight? Will Scooter Girl get to take a nap today?

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Gordo's Kicking All Our Arses!

Only 3 days left of "Guess-the-Gas" and Gordon Knight is killing it. With premium at $ looks like Gordo (aka Blond Bastard) will be getting his oil changed FOR FREE just in time for ScooterRosa.

Hey Gordo...any guesses for this week's lottery numbers?

Saturday, May 21, 2011

Disco is officially back...

In the form of helmet wear, that is. Scooter Girl is soooooo very happy to announce that Disco Helmet has been approved for wear by the SRPD's moto brigade. While we haven't seen hide nor hair of Officer Hot Pants lately, Scooter Girl did bump into Officer Hotter Pants & Officer Hottest Pants. Their take:

There's no law against having 'disco ball mirrors' attached to one's helmet. As long as they're securely attached, are not protruding from the surface of the helmet, and there's no 'residue' on the surface of the mirrors, we're good!

Hallelujah! Now, I've got something to wear for the rapture. Hope they're ready for me!

Beep! Beep!
Scooter Girl

P.S. Price of Premium has slid down to $4.37...which puts Blond Bastard in the lead.

Ten Day Countdown

Countdown for RevMoto's "Guess-the-Gas" contest has officially begun. Today is Day 10, with premium at $4.41.

Under: Dan Carls at $4.39

RE: Planning Meeting Rescheduled

To whom who it may concern, the ScooterRosa planning meeting, originally scheduled for today at 5PM, has now been moved to tomorrow at 5PM. All other details remain the same (i.e. refreshments, thinking caps, ruffies, nail polish, white boards, gold stars, and Logan).

Celebrity Style at Thrift Store Price

Scooter Girl recently got her hands on two beautiful Belstaff jackets.

Model: Toxic Motorcycle
Size: 42 (Size 4/6 US)
Color: Royal Blue
Material: Nylon

If you're not familiar with Belstaff, they're the go-to motorcycle jacket for celebrities, the rich, the famous, and the Dalai Lama. Go figure.

And by figure we mean this one: $1200--which is why most of us don't own one of these. Don't worry, the jackets were obtained legally (i.e. they didn't fall off of a truck or anything) and they are genuine with original tags still attached.

If you aren't local but still want the jacket, we've posted one on Ebay for your convenience. And get this...instead of $1200, it's $159.

The twin will be at RevMoto if you'd like to come in for a fitting. But hurry, we don't expect to have these jackets for very long.

Scooter Girl's sit-down with Piaggio USA's new CEO

I'm happy to announce that RevMoto was recently surprised by a visit from Piaggio USA's new CEO, Miguel Martinez (pictured left), VP of Sales, Doug Farrelly (pictured right), and the always adorable (and sadly not pictured), Kris O'Hare. If you haven't already guessed, that's Scooter Girl back-and-center.

With Miguel at the helm, since only March 8th, we were flattered that he came to see our shop, sip our wine, and listen to our comments and concerns. You'll be happy to know that Mr. Martinez gives Sonoma County wine two wheels up and hopes to return to scoot about on one of our Wine Country Vespa trips.

We'd gladly welcome Miguel back anytime. He's funny, he's attentive, and he likes our scooter shop. So, yeah.

Beep! Beep!
Scooter Girl

P.S. Scooter Girl wishes to thank Kris O'Hare & Doug Farrelly for coming along for the ride too. If there are any single scooter girls out there, Kris & Doug could make some pretty sweet ride-candy for the back of your scoot. Just sayin'.

Scooter Girl's new Kicks Kick A$$

So happy to announce that I've upgraded my riding boots to a new pair of Gaerne G-Donahs ($269.95). These babies are made with fine Corinthian leather...okay, maybe not Corinthian, but certainly sweet Italian full-grain leather upper with elastic cordura inserts.

In addition to being runway worthy, these Gaernes are specifically designed for women (suck it boys!), have a pro-tech ankle shield system & anti-slip rubber lug sole, and sport side closures for easy on/off (ahem).

If heels aren't for you, they make a model called the Black Rose ($199.95). They're equally beautiful in a sporty kinda way.

has made the Gaerne their official scooter boot and they're available on a special order basis. Don't worry, boys, Gaerne makes kick-a$$ boots for you too. Check out their men's line here: Boots for Boys.

The best part; they're gonna go perfectly with my new black bike. The worst part; I don't know if they'll look better on a Vespa S 150 or the new GTS 300.

Beep! Beep!
Scooter Girl

P.S. Super bonus: Like all fine things (handsome men included), these boots are made in Italy.

Your Booze Likes to Scoot Too

Great news; your scooter is now the best bartender in the whole world.

Thanks to this Trav-L-Bar on Ebay ($12) your booze can now scoot in style too. I'm sure if this had been available to James Bond, he'd prefer his martinis to be 'scooted' and not 'stirred.' I mean, who wouldn't?

Good luck on the bidding, ladies and gentlemen. And please, wait until you've arrived at your final destination before enjoying your adult beverage.

Steal of the Century

Now, through April 30th, Revolution Moto (my favorite place in the whole wide world), has the following deal available to good boys and girls everywhere.

Check it:

Aprilia Scarabeo 100cc, normally $2699 + fees, are now $600 off of the base price. Do you know what I could do with an extra 600 smackaroos? I could buy two of these: Trilogy. Or, 2/3 of this: Ruby. Not so fast though, because I could always get 4000 of these scrumptious delights: Peeps.

Some key benefits of the Aprilia Scarabeo 100:

1. It's got a cool name
2. It has 16" wheels to handle those pot holes from hell
3. It gets 100 MPG
4. It goes up to roaring speeds of 52 MPH
5. Top case comes with the scooter
6. Automatic (no shifting)
7. Instantly creates an intimate environment when you take a passenger (hubba-hubba)
8. Way easier to moon people riding on a scooter vs. driving in a car
9. You *get* to wear a helmet
10.You can start your very own kick-ass scooter blog

And...if you're new to riding, RevMoto will even help cover the cost of the safety course.

This is epic, people. If you have friends who have friends but don't have scooters, please pass this little offer along.

If Today Were May 28th...

This dude, Lee Bryant, would be the lucky winner of a free oil change at RevMoto.

Why, you ask? We'll Lee's prediction for "Guess-the-Gas" is $4.11. Today, the College & Mendo Chevron sign read $4.13--so Lee's closest, without going over.'s not May 28th. Yet.

Will gas continue to rise? Will frenzies ensue a la gas-crisis of the 1970's? Will there be ration books? (cue scary clown music)

If You Blog It, He Will Come

Open letter to: Mr. Mikey Teutul

Dearest Mikey,

First, sweet art! In perusing the world-wide intertubes for your contact info, I found your paintings and they’re quite good. Mind you, I’m no aficionado, but I do occasionally make it out of the house with matching shoes. What that has to do with art, I’m not sure, but given hours of contemplation, I’m sure one could draw some type of parallel. Or not.

Anyway, I’m a scooter girl from Northern California who recently posed my pals the following question (via the Facebooks);

Which famous person should come on a Vespa trip with us?

Survey says: YOU

You got the most votes, beating out Toby Keith (duh), Megan Fox, Lady GaGa, Keith Richards, Larry David (meh), Willie Nelson, and Silvio Berlusconi (thank goodness, as I’m in no mood to be fondled by some 70-year old with spray-on hair, Prime Minister or not).

So, congratulations? How about trading a few days of that horrible weather you’re having for some sunshine-soaking, Vespa riding, gourmet goodness? I know you’re abstaining from the drunky-drunky juice, and even though we’re in Wine Country, that’s perfect, ‘cause we don’t do the whole drinking-and-riding thing here. It’s so 2009.

If you’re still not convinced, check out the trips here:

And, oh yeah, It’s my treat.

P.S. Consider mid-April. We’ve got a couple of Aussies coming who can hang like boomerangs.

Bad Scooter Parents! BAD!

This poor little scooty-scoot-scoot was left on the side of the road in NY for 4 MONTHS. Because the plates had been removed by the owners, the city of NY put their parking, sanitation, and police departments on the case.

Finally, the owners were found. Now they claim that they'd like the scooter back. The real question though, is do they deserve it?

Me thinks, meh.

Finally, a chewing gum for scooterists!

If Trident is saying that their gum is as fun as scooters, then we like it. We like it a lot!

This, my friends, is the equivalent of finding the Virgin Mary's face on your grilled cheese, finding your keys on the first try, or having a non-disappearing sock experience (of the laundry variety), however you want to look at it. Brace yourself, people (all thirteen of you):

Amerivespa is in New Orleans this year. I know!!!

Oh f*ck yeah! That was my first response. And my second. And, well, I'm still saying it. And even though I loathe long journeys, the way most men would fear a full-body wax, New Orleans can make me do anything. Actually, the beignets can. And the Maple Leaf, The Howlin' Wolf, Herbsaint, Sucre, Faulkner House Books, The Columns, Frank Brightsen's and I could go on. And on. And on.

Guess I better get busy with Google Maps.

You Don't Have to be a Bastard...

To ride like one. Or, ride with one. Or next to one. Or under one (ahem...Blondie). The unholy order of Royal Bastards of the North Bay are kicking off this riding season on Sunday, February 13th. So be there, or be bare! Actually, I added that last bit. I don't know the Bastards' policy on naked scooting.

As far as the ride goes, Lee thinks there might be rain by then. Ray thinks they'll eat pizza. And...Scooter Girl thinks yellow safety vests, while effective, are not flattering. Try reflective tape, or LED lights, or disco mirrors.

Scoot safely people! Stylishly, but safely.

Scooter Girl finds Scooter Art

On a recent trip, this little-scooter-whittle-ditty was discovered in a tiny little town, in a tiny little restaurant, and made by a tiny little artist. The town: San Francisco, Mexico, which also goes by the moniker; San Pancho. The restaurant: Amore Dolce. The artist: Angelica, seen pictured with Scooter Girl here...

The carved scoot with the Aztec warrior was not for sale, so we instead settled for some lasagna made by Sergio.
