Terre de Trinci Boxed Wines Pink Vespa Scooter Chardonnay Sangiovese

More scooter wine! Our cups runneth over. Terre De Trinci is a winery located in the Umbria region in the center of Italy. And their wines have been rated 90+ points in Wine Spectator so you know their boxed wines are probably going to be pretty good.

If you hail from Arizona, you’re in luck as both of these wines are available at the Bashas supermarket chain.

If they are spotted elsewhere, would ya let us know?

Dead Ahead iPhone/iPad game

Dead Ahead Video Game Vespa Scooter iPhone iPad

I’m not a gamer so I am useless as to whether this is a cool Apple app or not. But it’s FREE so why not give it a try?

And in the meantime I will give you this hilarious review from bunchofgamers.com :

“Colour me excited … Dead Ahead isn’t even a runner, as it gives you increasingly awesome transportation methods and releases you in one of the zombie-infested areas of a city, with a clear direction to move to the right, destroying as many empty shells of human beings on your way, as possible – it’s not hugely different from driving in my suburbs, really … The controls are really simple: just slide your finger upwards and downwards on the right side of the screen and your hero will drive accordingly, evading obstacles and hitting zombies – if you’re fast enough, of course. This would already be an awesome idea, but to add fuel to the fire, you are also constantly being chased by zombies that are so eager to munch on your insides that they get completely oblivious to their surroundings, just like rabid kittens.”

Ooh that last picture is scary. So glad I don’t have to outrun that hoard on my 3 speed VBA.

This app will work on iPhone 3GS to iPhone 5, 3rd to 5th Gen iPod Touch and on iPads. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. Here’s a link to download the app for the iPhone.

How to have a magnetic personality.


This is one dangerous site. Retroplanet.com has way too much scooter stuff all packed into it with reasonable prices. You can order tin signs as well as magnets for both Lambretta and Vespa. Prices range from $3.99 to $19.99. To see all their scooter stuff, click here.

Helps! I am out of swag to post!!


Normally I have posts ready to run for at least two weeks out. But I have run out of swag to post about. This has only happened maybe three times since I started the blog in late 2005. Yipes! (I’m scared. Hold me.)

So anybody out there know of swag that hasn’t appeared here yet? Maybe you’ve got a great collection to show off? Or an incredible art or crafts project that needs some face time? Or some rare swag that you snapped while on a vacation? Or a souvenir you picked up when you were in another country?

Now is the time to send me your tips!

Cheers and thanks,

Moto your Fro-yo.

Fro-yo Moto Menchie's Frozen Yogurt Scooter Vespa Insulated Bag

Despite the fact that I have been surrounded by Menchie’s frozen yogurt shops everywhere I have lived, I’ve never actually seen one. So if you’re not as oblivious as I am, visit one of their stores to pick up a “Moto Fro-Yo” insulated bag with their mascot riding a pink scooter. It runs around $9.99. I’m also including some other scooter imagery from a quick web search.
