I’m not really sure what prompted these guys to do it. Maybe boredom. Maybe they wanted to climb the mountain because the mountain was there. Or just maybe they saw the Cooper Mini Limo and thought to do the same thing with a scooter. I’m not just impressed with the mechanical abilities viewed in this video. I’m also super impressed that most of it s done while wearing a tie. Obviously this is one of those foreign films.
The “long” scooter is quite impressive. There is a seat in the front for steering and another one in the back for…riding. If I had the parts I would add another steering section in the rear sort of like the Fire Engine Ladder trucks. Might make it easier to round a normal street corner.

Last year as the gas prices were steadily increased to the summer high point of $4.00/gallon, Sondra and I purchased a pair of scooters, so we could run around on the weekends and take some burden off our wallets. I’m self-employed so just needed something simple to run down to the coffee shop and work for the day. Last year we also joined the local Austin Scooter Club. Maybe another victim of the economy of maybe just wanting more control over the actual site, Mary and the gang have transitioned the group over to self-hosted WordPress site. Announcing the brand new Austin Scooter Club baby. It looks really good and I’m ready to help fill it up with links and other scooter information I’ve gathered over the last year. Not happy about using the choice of phpBB forum. Seemed more functional to use Google Groups like other groups.
Also, if you’re a scooter owner and living in the general Austin area don’t forget to register for the First Full of Scooters Rally coming up May 1st.
This afternoon the Texas House passed a measure that would prevent teens under the age of 16.5 years from being able to use public Tanning beds like those found at Dark Tan and other pay for use salons across the state. Also part of the measure is a section to allow 18 and under (that would be anyone between the ages of 16.5 and 18) to use the tanning facilities but both the parent and the minor must sign an advisory that discusses the dangers of tanning. I equate this to the reading the terms and conditions when purchasing or installing online software.
What really pisses me off about this ‘measure’ is the uselessness of it all. This is just another of a long line or changes to the state laws to protect the citizens from themselves. It’s no wonder the national economy is in the shitter these days. Instead of the State and National lawmaker focusing on long-term goals to make out country stronger, they spent their time and good taxpayer money writing up crap like this.
