SHOWNOTES: Thanks for joining me. I invite you to send me email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am leaving in the middle of the night on Tuesday to travel out to the west coast again. My mother went back in the hospital this past, but seems to be OK, so I will spend a few days with her at home and then on Saturday, head over to Seattle for Amerivespa. I hope to speak with all the bloggers who are planning to go, from blogs like Little Billys Scooter Tales, Scootin Old School, Big Guy Small Scooter, 2strokebuzz, Honky Tonk Dragon and any others who show up. Podcasters have a whole network of social links that connect us to each other. It was through one of these links that I found Mr. Suaves Mod Mod World. First go over to his website and check out the retro site Mr. Suave pod casts from Seattle, so I have been wondering if I can track him down at Amerivespa. On his blog he mentions the Rat City Roller Girls, a Seattle area girls roller derby league. Check out the trailer for a the movie on his website or look at it directly here: Blood on the Flat Track. Check out his early mod ramblings here, but beware, use Explorer, if you try to use Firefox you mostly will crash your browser. By now, I expect that most of you listening know or have heard of the website Girlbike. Crystal Waters web presences goes way back to 2000 when she wrote about riding over 1000 miles in an Austin Bike Charity raising money for AIDS research. In addition to checking out Crystals current blog topics, look for the Long Hall to the Last Mile Ride post. She and several friends will be leaving from Maryland and end-up in Vermont. I read about the Last Mile Ride several weeks ago and it has been on my mind ever since. I wish that we were all a bit more altruistic and vocal about the things that are really important, like Crystal. Got to her website and learn how to sponsor her in the ride. Have you noticed that SCOMO has disappeared? Well I am here to tell you it is not true. I went down to see Chelsea yesterday as the website has been off-line for several weeks. I was relieved to find that, yes, they are all still here in Richmond, same great people and some surprising new developments. Right now I will tell you, Scomo is now Scoot Richmond and has a new, colorful website. In a few weeks Chelsea will be talking with me on SCTRCST about the new showroom, displays and scoots.l let you know more about that later. This weeks music features Porter Block with South Beach Drive from Podsafe Music Network and Eleanor Rigby with Mod Boy from the ioda promonet. Some of you may remember Eleanor Rigby as a Mod Icon and Cult Figure on the Record Collectors Market. This was her 6th & final Single.
