    The Firkin Scooter Club scarves have arrived. I will have them at the March ride for those wishing to pick one up. As discussed, there is a suggested donation of $20. Please let me know if you would like to pick one up at the ride so I know how many to bring.

    Come celebrate March Madness the Firkin Scooter Club way. Fat Tire Paul will lead the way through backroads on our journey to West Seattle. We will have a lunch stop at Elliot Bay Brewing to fill up and refuel on organic beers.

    We then will venture down to Alki Beach to show off our scoots while making the loop on our way back up into White Center to descend upon a little gem known as Big Al Brewing

    After a round of beers and darts at Big Al, it’s off to the ferry terminal on our way to Vashon Island. Once on the island, I hear a mandatory stop for the Firkins is a place known as Red Bicycle Bistro . Riders wishing to catch an earlier ferry from Tahlequah to Point Defiance may want to skip this stop. Once back over to Point Defiance, the day should be wrapped up with the possibility of one last stop at the Goldfish Tavern.

    We’ll meet Sunday March, 21st at Alfred’s Cafe in Tacoma. Alfred’s is located at 402 Puyallup Avenue Tacoma, WA 98421. Meet up at 10:30 AM and leave at 11:00 AM sharp.This is a 50cc friendly ride and expect a long day of scootin’. Roughly 70 miles will be covered with 3 planned stops and 2 ferry rides. For any Seattle riders wishing to meet us at the lunch stop, we should arrive between 12:15 to 12:30. Please note we are no longer having lunch at the West Seattle location due to very limited parking. We will now have lunch at the Burien location.

    Custom Show Ried (Austria) 2010

    Author: ufor360  //  Category: General

    "Scooter enthusiasts from all over the world came to Ried last weekend. And they came for a good reason: The annual customshow that took place in the Energie Ried Halle. Beautiful originals, extraordinary tuning-ideas and spectacularly modified scoots: Something to every visitor’s taste.

    Beside the actual customshow, you also had the chance to visit the traders’ area, where you could finally see and touch recently developed parts and a spare parts fair for all the bargain hunters. Fortunately the venue was big enough to allow the 1500 visitors to take a good look at the 170 scooters unhurriedly. Which was definitely worthwile, as our latest custom project ‚Glorious Basterd’, (winning the category ‚Best Vespa’) contained a lot of details one could only recognize at a second glance. 

    That’s the Basterd’s charm: The artful combination of elements that normally ‚would not fit’. From the new SIP Performance Digital Speedo fitted into the dropped handlebar to the GTS-conversion to 12“ –  The beautifully painted scooter is an eye-catcher all along the line. And with an RS Performance Curley exhaust, a 35mm Mikuni carburetor and a 172cc Quattrini racing cylinder – the qualities underneath the surface are matching, too.
    Two other absolute highlights of the customshow were – without a doubt the breathtaking acrobatic show, performed by the Oldtimerfreunde München and the Allnighter, taking place at the WOMM – disco after the main event.

    Our congratulations to the other winners (among them: Mike – ‚Best of All’ for his Depeche Mode and Wolfi – ‚Best Paint’ for the Projekt HRG) and many thaks to the organizers and visitors. We are much looking forward to seeing you all again at the Jetson’s Customshow 2011 in Munich!"
