Dharia is a scientist and wannabe artist who has a love of Worcester, Diners, and Scooters. She met another person with similar tastes and they decided that starting a club to celebrate these pastimes was just the thing this area needed. (pomo)Dora is a Vespa ET2 (Target Vespa) named for her cream-of-tomato soup paint job. Favorite things: dive bars, brunch, dancing, knitting, cooking, and scooting around new england looking for diners and old factory buildings for black & white photography (and not getting arrested in the process)
Co-founder of DINER CITY Scooter Club. Graphic designer, cartoonist, illustrator, arts rabble rouser, general trouble-maker. dsquared.org is my main website / base of operations. In the real world, I live in Worcester, MA and love crumbling factory buildings and untapped potential. I ride a 2004 Aprilia Mojito Custom 150 and I just sold my first scooter (given to me by Chantal!) a 2003 Honda Metropolitan (Salsa red) to my friend Tina!
Waiting for Tim to find some time to write up a quick bio.

Rich Chapel, best known as Doug's Dad, is an advertising copywriter by trade. Mechanically inept with his hands, he writes complex technical descriptions of gearless drives, tunneling catheters, 3-D CAD software and integrated circuit components. His funtime interests range from listening / playing jazz to water color painting and sailing (out of the Indian Lake Yacht Club). His alter ego is The Stickler, a nefarious designer and placer of socially destabilizing stickers. (Employees must wash genitals before returning to work). (RC's blogsite: RC Notes)
Being Italian I have ridden Vespa scooters since
my early age, well before it was legal for me to do it.
I live in Shrewsbury now and I still love to ride my
Vespa everywhere! I am a software Engineer
but my interests are, except scooting: everything
related to Italy, airsoft and Warhammer Fantasy
and of course my family. See you on the road!!
