“Armadillo Scooterwear have just released this new video campaign titled ‘Tough Enough’. Featuring a Vespa and stunt rider wearing Armadillo clothing, this action-packed viral was shot on the back streets of London. The creative team behind the project is the Amsterdam based Italian/ Spanish duo Ham & Kaas, the viral was produced by Stink Ltd, working together with the British Directing Team Darkfibre. Director of photography is Michael Bonvillain, famed for TV series Lost, Cloverfield and most recently Zombieland. The music is from a Canadian two-piece called Lullaby Arkestra, signed to Vice Records.”
Meano Vino would like to guide you through many of our own backyards on this ride to check out our neighborhoods. Not wanting to stray too far from home this time of year he has created a loop ride through six of our local cities. With the fair weather riding season just around the corner let’s kick it off locally to spread the scooter addiction!

We’ll meet Sunday February 21st at Alfred’s in Tacoma at 10:30 and get on the road at 11:00. We will have plenty of pit stops along the way if needed. About 12:30-1:00ish we will wake up Orting with a lunch stop at a Steak and Pasta Pub(21+). Once refueled, we will take on some twisty back roads and hills passing through Graham, Puyallup, Lakewood and on to west Tacoma with a see and be seen finish along the waterfront. This ride is 50cc friendly and will average about 75 miles(3 hrs-15 min. riding time plus lunch stop). It’s been road tested and runs well minus a few good pot holes in Tacoma! See you there!
