This will be a great event for scooters this year so check it out . I met with Jeremy Hall of NASRA he is putting this together and it should be a great event. We met at The Dealer Expo and spent a little time together discussing scooter racing with Louie of Polini and SPIparts and also with Sean and Adam from ScooterWorks. What a great time we had and thanks goes out to all that are coming on board with sponsorship and racing with us this year. 2010 WILL BE HUGE
Buying a scooter, Scooter Shop or Motorcycle Shop?
Scooters are a very unique mode of transportation; widely different from most modern motorcycles. Consequently, many motorcycle shops that carry scooters lack the knowledge and/or passion necessary to provide the best buying experience. While there are motorcycle shops that are knowledgeable about scooters, they are few and far between. On the other hand, every scooter specific shop we’ve had the pleasure of visiting has been passionate and knowledgeable about scooters. In their cases they have to be, it’s their core business.
A shining example of what a great scooter shop should be is Scootertronics of Thurmont Maryland. They combine the three most important ingredients for a successful scooter shop, great brands (Linhai, TNG ,Keeway and more) a top notch mechanic (Tommy Thunder), and a wonderful staff (Scooter Mike, Mary “Thunder” Chaffee). Those three ingredients sum up the huge benefit of doing business with a scooter specific shop. You get a knowledgeable staff who knows the product, wonderful mechanical support, and well as the fact that you are supporting a local establishment that gives back to the scootering community.
On the flip side, while we’ve never had a bad scooter experience in a motorcycle focused shop, our experiences have never been quite as good as a scooter-centric shop. The motorcycle focused shops definitely don’t have the knowledge of the scooter shops, and the passion is normally not as high.
Basically it all boils down to supporting those who support the scootering scene. Scooter shops have the knowledge, passion, and desire to support and grow the local scootering community. While motorcycle focused shops aren’t necessarily doing anything bad to the scootering community, they’re definitely not doing as much as the scooter-only shops. My grandfather always said ” do business with those who do business with you.” For most scooterists that is without a doubt the scooter shop.
Check out Scootertronics on the web at scootertronics.com or come out and see them in person at 104 Frederick Rd in Thurmont Maryland 21788 .They are right across from the Cozy Inn at the base of the Catoctin Mountains .
This is a great town and a great place to buy and ride your scooter. Scootertronics has many local rides and clubs that you can participate with to get the great scooter experiance . They are also working on a vintage scooter museum and the race scooters all over the mid Atlantic. So come in and check them out.
So I just wanted to show off my 1964 Vespa Allstate 125 . I have been restoring this scooter for myself inbetween all of the customers scoots. I got to ride it for the first time this year and it was a blast. It draws a lot of attention everywhere I go.
This year I will be showing it at a bunch of shows along with some other scooters we have done.
