Austin wakeboard celebrity loves his scooter!

Fri, Sep 19, 2008


(Austin’s own Mitch Bergsma seen here on his Burgsma Burgman 400 with his GF riding wakeboard in the back)

Caught the news of friend and fellow scooterist, Mitch Bergsma, being interviewed for yesterday.  Mitch, who’s been wakeboarding for 10 years, has been riding, reparing and customizing scooters for about as long (remind me to post photos of his latest custom light job on his Piaggio Fly 150). 

He’s a great guy with a great sense of humor and he recently brought home first place in the Outlaw class at the SETx Mid-Summer Classic competition!  Way to go Mitch!

Click the link to read Mitch’s story.  This guy takes his scootering seriously.  I don’t think he even owns a car… just a garage full of scooters.

    Let’s hope he at least wears a life jacket when he’s wakeboarding.
    Take off the flip flops and put on a helmet! You’re not just chillin with the nuggs at the dock.

    They could be DOT flip flops.

    The motor itself caught my attention because of its lovely and adorable design. The motorcycle really fits on the persona or image of Austin.
