Scooter thefts make it to the news in Philly

As the heat rises so do scooter thefts so many in fact, that even the local news has picked up on it. Check out the link to 6 ABC’s story featuring Philadelphia Scooters.

Overall summary of the news piece is: Lock up your scooter.

Also Fox 29 did a story as well but have yet to find it online.

Leigh and Hildagard Von Dekka-Haus (Hilde) have the ability to make even the most roughest of Philadelphians smile. The sight of a German Shepard in a scooter sidecar is not something you see in Philadelphia but Leigh and Hilde make regular trips out. The only question is, who enjoys the ride more; Leigh or Hilde? Make sure if you see them to say “Hi”, Hilde loves to have her picture taken.

Gear can keep you safer.

A study in Australia over a 12 month period concluded that proper riding gear makes you safer. I could have said the same thing but they proved it with SCIENCE! Watch the video and buy some new gloves and boots.

Buddy 170i Photos – Modern Buddy

[source]

Eric from http://www.modernbuddy.com recently posted photos of the new Genuine Scooters Buddy 170i after coming off the factory floor at PGO.

The new Buddy colors look great. I am personally a fan of the silver. We will have a review of the new Buddy 170i once they show up in Philly. Untill then, enjoy the photos.

Also, if you have a Genuine Scooter’s Buddy, Check out Modern Buddy. It’s a great resource for Buddy owners and any Scooterist.
