First, a huge thank you to the scooter community for encouraging and supporting The Scooter 'Zine for the past 5 years. The time has flown by for me. We have featured riders and clubs from all over the US and Canada. This issue has our first stories from Mexico. Now, The Scooter 'Zine is truly a North American Scooter Magazine!

Thanks, also, to the writers, riders and artists who have contributed their stories, poems and artwork to share with to community at large.

The biggest thanks are for those who have subscribed. Wow! People from more than 40 states, Canada, the UK and even Japan have been part of the 'Zine family. Thank you, so much.
