Ace Scooters

Ponderings on life, the universe and scooters from WA's only specialised scooter only emporium.

Ace Scooters - best scooter emporium in the known universe

In a pathetic and futile attempt to steal some of The Scooter Shop, Launceston's thunder over an amusing and clever blog post announcing their internal award of the worlds best scooter shop, the management at Ace Scooters have voted by the narrowest of margins to determine the winner of the inaugural best scooter emporium in the known universe.

It was perhaps no surprise, and entirely inkeeping with the way such self-approved awards are apparently determined, that the unanimous winner was Ace Scooters in Joondalup. "It was a very difficult decision, but at the end of the day Cam, we sell Vespa and you don't", summarised dealer principal Steve Laing, "plus we've got better weather over here in WA, and footy teams in the AFL (albeit in the lower reaches at present, but at least the Eagles are above the Dockers", he muttered under his breath).

One of the most contentious criteria was locally produced beer.  Tasmania often scores highly in this category, but were pipped by the wonderful brews from Little Creatures, particularly the Pale Ale and Rogers.  "All the girls here like a good Rogering, so winning in this area was no surprise".

The dealer principal in an evening dress was won by Cam Saunders, and a surprise winner in the bikini criterion was Brendon from Scooter HQ, in a Wicked Weasel micro provided from Tania Murray-Brady's extensive collection. 

When collecting his award, dealer principal Steve@ace was asked if he had a message of consolation for the other contenders.  "Neh neh ne neh neh!" was his considered response.


Just need to get Dozer to get the flash ad sorted, and we'll be laughing!

Oh dear, pipped for the "known universe" award by by a bikini clad, coffee roasting, vespa riding dealer principal that enjoys a good rogering from a little creature.... Fair call.

We'll have to work harder for the upcoming "unknown universe" award or the "smallest shop" award... :-)

Being based in Queensland HQ was handicapped in the beer department, so like Cam's award this was also rigged.

Although they could use the slogan " all the girls here like a good XXXX".

But we don't give a XXXX about losing beer thing, I look better in a bikini than both the other guys & I've had two kids ;).

PS - Just incase anyone reads this not from Australia (particularly US) XXXX is a brand of beer also used as an industrial detergent.

Joondalup is soooo far up the Freeway north of the Perth CBD it could almost be considered the end of the known universe!!!! At least it can claim to have a very decent scooter shop!!!! Congrats Steve! I look forward to seeing you furiously polishing your, er.... 'award' when I come to get my scoot serviced on Tuesday. On second thoughts..... scrap that!! The thought of watching anyone furiously polish 'awards' is just-yeuck!!!! Oh dear-I'm going now! With the very kindest regards!
