The Scooter 'Zine (America's Only Scooter Magazine) just turned two. Happy Birthday to Us.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Modern Vespa for your support, comments and encouragement along the way. Some have subscribed and that helps a LOT (Thank you) but more of you have given encouraging words and solid answers to my questions. Things like that really help.

Starting a new business wasn't easy and Covid certainly didn't help matters, but we have persevered.

It's impossible to keep going without help from the scooter community. In the zine, we share a lot of great stories about people and their scooters. If you have a story to tell, please let me know. The Zine has also started featuring scooter art. If you, or someone you know, draws, paints or computers scooter related art, let me know. We would love to spotlight their work in the magazine.

Shameless plug, in this issue you can read the story of Eric Johnson. He had been dreaming of getting a Vespa 946. In this issue he tells his story of seeing one at a fantastic price, so he dropped everything, went to the shop and rode it home . . . 1853 MILES! From Austin back to Virginia.

Thanks again, ModernVespians, for your support and encouragement over the past 2 years.

Howard, I have to thank you for the work you've done putting this 'zine out: I've frequently dropped whatever else I was doing just to quickly leaf through the latest copy when it arrives, then carve out a half-hour later to properly take it all in. Here's to more good years in-print! (Much easier on the eyes than staring at a screen.)

The beginning of a great adventure ... in a century the web will still contain your reports while the paper will have disappeared.

I'm a subscriber and enjoy the read. I'm sure it takes more work and time than you would think to produce this mag and your efforts are very much appreciated! Here's to lots more years of publications!
