Well, poor Phil McCaleb is getting a taste of his own medicine. When he started ScooterWorks, he made it his mission to absolutely destroy every other scooter shop and spread lies about the owners. Think I am exaggerating? Ask anyone around in the early 90′s like Ron Hedlund (D.A.S.M.I. & Vespa of Chicago) or Scott & Judy Chain (ScooterVille). Unless your name was Randolf Gardner, Phil had no use for you and made it his life goal to screw you. I could not tell you how many scooter events that I would see Phil show up at and he NEVER rode a scooter. He would just sit around and talk shit about everyone else and tell everyone how great he is.
Recently, it seems like Phil could not get enough people to buy his rebadged scooters and people were buying parts from real scooter shops like Scooters Originali so he sought some outside financing. They took control of his company and they want him out. What the hell did you think was going to happen Phil? Are you really that stupid? What the hell do you think happens when companies seek venture capital? The venture capital companies take control of the board and the only goal they have is to sell the company. That is how they make their money.
Phil, you sir are truly a dumb ass. You are getting your just rewards for all the people you have fucked over the years. I have said this many times and I stand by my statement that Phil McCaleb has solely done more damage to the scooter scene than anyone else in the United States. I am now laughing in your face.

So, a new business opened up across the street from my office. It is called Porter’s Pinball Parlor. As you would imagine, it is a pinball arcade of sorts. I came down to Final Friday as I normally do with the kids. Violet likes going to the various shops and Monty just likes to go to my office. I stopped in MOTR for a quick beverage and gave Monty a buck to go over to Porters and play some pinball. He came back a few minutes later and said he was told he was not allowed in. Finding that hard to believe, as he had been there many times before, I took a stroll over and see what was up. Sure enough, I was told “No kids”.
Well, Porter’s Pinball Parlor, just a quick FYI… MOTR has a better pinball selection and they have no problem letting my kids play. Good luck paying your rent to Urban Sites when you will not let kids play your machines. I will never be back.
Thanks to Lincoln for the date night. They gave me a hundred bucks and a MKZ.
Meet my cardiologist, Dr. James Kong. He is the guy that keeps me alive. I can not say enough good things about him and his staff.
I just found out I have to back in to the hospital and go under the scapel. There is an issue with my ticker and they want to look at it closer.
The up side is that I live.
The down side is that I will not be riding for a while.
That’s right kids, WKRP is back. Brought to you by the Vulcan Scooter Secte and the XYL’s. All the info can be found HERE.
Spent the afternoon with Shannon learning all about carbs from Vincent. An excellent teacher.
