Scooter Madness

A neat project I've been working on for a while has been these cool aftermarket pipes for scooter racing (think Vespa on steroids, including wheelies).

If you happen to be a scooter enthusiast or would just like to browse around, check out (link includes video of a pretty rowdy scooter).

In other news, I'm mostly recovered from my little bike crash and can ride and run with no problems. Still can't swim due to some bruised bones in my elbow, and that sucks.

On that note, time to get back into some dizzying Solidworks "fun."
