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...


SEAN RAMSEY

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!

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?

Gordo's Kicking All Our Arses!

Only 3 days left of "Guess-the-Gas" and Gordon Knight is killing it. With premium at $4.33...it 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?

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.

If I were in an office (thank God I'm not) the corporate blow-hole, pictured above, would be wandering around cubicles delivering the following message:

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.

RevMoto
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.
