Show notes: It’s been another busy week, along with my regular job and all the meetings I go to, I have been spend most of my time at home setting up a myspace page. After a number of inquiries about "do you have a myspace page?" I caved and sat down to do some work on it. Look for it here. I guess I had this idea that myspace was about all these single (or maybe married acting single) people trying to hit on each other. But now I understand. In the few short days that my page has been up, I have gotten dozens of contacts from people asking about the show and maybe more important to me, I have had the biggest week of downloads ever. As a podcasters, I guess like a musician, you want others to hear what you produce, so like Orin said to me, this could really expand the audience who listens to SCTRCST. Marcel and I continue to plan her move from Cincinnati back to Richmond, Virginia. She is going to make this her home base for a new consulting company she will be working with. Since the company is based in Denver, it means her and hopefully I, will be getting back there more often.Having lived there for many years we still have many friends there and of course there is always Sportique Scooters, the place I were I would go when I got an itch for a new scooter in my early scooter days of scooting. It is also the home of some scooter legends like, Colin Shadduck who wrote Scooters Red Eyes, Whitewalls & Blue Smoke Scooters Lawrence who I met at Amerivespa, emailed me to reminded me that the big Texas rally called Third Coast Rally in San Antonio is coming up October 5-7. Check out the rally site here. Also look at myspace page for the Scooter Club in Lawrence's Brownsville Texas area. It is call the Scooter Club Golden Triangle.

SHOWNOTES: This show is chock full of information and news. I was fortunate to spend time yesterday speaking with Dave Dixon, in Vancouver, British Columbia about his blog Big Guy Small Scooter (he rides a Vespa LX50). In an email Errol from Toronto sent a link to the latest update on Hayden Neale of Jacksoul. After his scooter crash he is still in critical condition, but starting to respond to doctors and treatment, which sounds like good news. Most of this show is the interview I did yesterday with Dave Dixon from Big Guy Small Scooter another talented blogger.

SHOWNOTES: Call the voice mail line at 206-888-6174 and tell me what you think of the show or let me know what kind of scooting activities are going on in your area. I have been looking to try to find out how Canadian Hayden Neale from Jacksoul is doing, but there hasn't been much in the news about him and his website has not been updated. Anybody out there heard anything? Give me a call. It has seemed that many of the scooter bloggers are slowing down a bit on posting. For me it means searching for more supplemental material and wondering each week what I will be talking about. So this morning, as a jump-start, I took off on my P200 sidecar rig for a ride into the country and some good old fashion open throttle riding. What that really means is pounding out 50 mph on a long downhill stretch. I realized that I haven't said much lately about what is going on here at home, so in addition to this weeks news and blog reviews, we'll do a little catching up. Other scooter blog post that are up have very personal touches, like Honky Tonk Dragon and Ben's plans to move from Oregon to Connecticut, with no job. How "in the moment" is that! Look at the following posts from and his starting over with his family or Little Billys Scooter Tales where Bill talks about his new responsibilities for helping guide their employee run business. An then there is the ever evolving and surprisingly transparent Combat Commuter, who bravely has opened up about his family and talking about what is important to him. These are people living and experiencing life as it is today and what pushes people to be better than we are or better that we were. Marcel, my wife has been out west in Montana that past few days. Some of you may remember that she has been working in the land of ScooterDave in Cincinnati for the past few years and commuting back and forth on the weekend from here in Richmond Virginia. I think this trip has been a soul search for both of us, trying to regroup and get back to creating more of a life together. I must say that over the time we have been together, which is many years, she also has been much more the risk taker when it comes to employment, than I have ever been. But she has also helped me understand that with risk taking come the potential for great rewards and that is what I am talking about. So best of luck to Ben and Bill and the Combat Commuter and oh, yeah I guess I should say good luck to Marcel and me as it looks like she is coming home and we are embarking on a new adventure with each other and with her work.

SHOWNOTES: Just a quick reminder, I now have a voice mail number you can call from your phone 206-888-6174. It is listed at the top of the web page and should scroll in the podcast title for those of you using an ipod. The POR-15 product for reconditioning my 180ss tank came this week. Take my suggestion and just order it from the company website, it was here in three days. If you are planning this project, make sure you have time to complete the whole thing, that way there is less likelihood of any flash rusting, before you can get the tank coated. Just so you know, you will not find that everyone agrees with coating a tank. I think this comes from using inferior product and having the tank lining deteriorate over time. There is an interesting blog post over on Modvespa.com taking about the restoration of an NSU scooter. NSU is from Germany and this on has been on the scoot.net website before. It is a 1956 Prima D and I'll have links to both the ModVespa blog post and the original post at scoot.net. This is the kind of European scooter you don't see over in the US very often. Vespa has started pushing hard on their “Go Green? campaign The have put up another flashy website encouraging us all to make videos praising the Vespa as a tree hugger's dream. At the moment there are only a few short clips, but given that they are offering to give away a couple of scooters for the best ones, I'm sure they will start flooding in. There will be a link in the show notes to the Go Green Vespa Video Challenge.
