Yesterday was a blast! Dot Com Scooter Gang was a complete success (with some FAIL) all at the same time. On one hand, everyone had a blast terrorizing and honking at the citizens of Vancouver. On the other hand, Michael Kwan the Internet Famous Segway Crasher, bailed once again and we now add Scooter Crasher to his list of nicknames in addition to Kwanye. Thankfully, Scooter was unscathed and was able to stay away from any Kwan Carnage though there were a few other close calls besides the one in the video.
Of course, no Dot Com Adventure would be complete without John Chow doing something mischievious as he tears up a gravel parking lot doing scooter burn outs. Gary Ng tries to prove that the iPhone 3G is actually useful for something and Carl Nelson takes us down to the Barefoot Kitchen for some authentic Japanese fast food. It's all right here in the first ever Dot Com Scooter Gang Video...
Was It The Helmet?
I have to hand it to Kwanye. By the time the day was over, he was ripping the throttle wide open instead of putting around like granny on a mobility scooter. His cornering and handling was also 100% improved over earlier in the day. No longer was he causing women to scream because it looked like he was bailing into the cars in the turning lane from the curb at Spanish Banks, or rubbing up against inanimate objects with his body parts, leading to required first aid assistance. It was like he had changed from Scooter Crashing Kwanye into Somewhat Sketchy Kwanye. I'd ride with Somewhat Sketchy Kwanye any day at a safe distance. I'm still cracking up over how he tried to keep a straight face and tried to hide the gaping hole in his jeans as he explained to CycleBC how he didn't know how the huge scratches got on his scooter.
Don't forget to catch up with us again at Dot Com Pho. We'll be heading down to the Congee Noodle House this Saturday. Watch for complete details posted on Friday or put me on your Twitter Hot List for up to the minute Dot Com Pho updates.
Next week, we'll be doing our first Dot Com RockBand. Stay tuned as Michael Kwan tries to redeem himself with the soothing sounds of Timmay and the Lords of the Underworld. I am sure that EPIC Hilarity will be on the menu in some shape or form.
