Re: Name My Green Flaming Scooter!
" Jawbreaker"

Well, y'all did such a good job in suggesting names for the "Scorched" scooter, that I thought I would take suggestions for my new paint job. I've been calling it the Atomic Scooter. But maybe there is something better out there. And there's the Stella "Atomic Fireball" scooters which sound kind of the same.

The concept behind the bike: I wanted the scooter to be a meteor of green flaming radiation hurling itself towards the earth. The front is an atomic explosion that wraps around the bike which turns into green flames. Small neutrons shoot out of the explosion and twirl around forming small atomic radiation symbols on the scooter. The back of the bike has deep fizzures and cracks as the meteor begins to crack and break up, releasing green radiation. And, as you all know, the scooter glows in the dark. I also wanted to scooter to look like it was moving, even when standing still.

One suggestion I had was to call it Absinthe, like the green drink. It fits the color but not the concept.

OK, let's see what you all can come up with. There's a Vespa Denver shirt in it for the person with the best name.

Also, I would love to hear what mods you would make it it was your scooter. So far, I have a Stebel compact air horn and my green LED nameplate which sticks magnetically to the rear rack.

Brainstorm during dinner:

*** WASABI ***

You can figure out what I was eating, I hope.

OK. After much thought, brainstorming, and actually riding my scooter while saying the name out loud to see if it fits (when I've named other scooters in the past, the scooters have always let me now what their name is), I've found the perfect name.

ATOMIC BLAST

I always liked the Atomic part but just Atomic Scooter was not working for me. Kind of bland. Blast gives it energy, motion and excitment! Blast can be an explosion (which is what the paint job is all about), plus Blast is a very fun time. And riding the GTS 250 is nothing if not a total blast.

Now this is a name I came up with after being inspired by all your brainstorming. So what I would like to do is award a Vespa Denver shirt to my favorite choice from the names submitted. A First-Runner up if you will. In the event that Atomic Blast will be unable to perform her duties, then blah, blah, blah.

Without the help of all of you, I would not have arrived at Atomic Blast.

So my favorite choice from the submitted names is

ATOMIC AVENGER

Congrats to TFauch! PM me your address and I'll get a shirt sent off.

And THANKS TO EVERYONE for contributing great ideas! You all are the best!

Why would you have boxes of it?
