Dean and Patch had driven into Borculo to get something to eat and found a Chinese where they had a good belly full of noodles. Outside, preparing to leave, Patch started up his scoot. All of a sudden, this German Shepherd dog ran out of a bar, barking like mad. Obviously the noise of the scoots had annoyed him as he sunk his fangs into Dean’s front mudguard. Dean understandably flipped and flew into the bar to find the owner. No one owned up and if you saw Dean in full thunderous rage, you’d understand why. Consequently, his mudguard had four perfectly formed scratches, the exact distance apart as the bite from the dog. Perhaps we could get Quincy involved here to solve the crime. I did feel sorry for Dean as he had only recently got his scoot back from the spray shop. In one way he was quite lucky that his mudguard was metal not fiberglass like mine, as if the hound from hell had taken a bite at one of those, there would be nothing left. Sorry about your scoot Dean, but you must admit, on reflection, if it wasn’t so bizarre and funny, it would be serious.

HiH Puzzle (no prizes)


In the spirit of Holiday in Holland, here’s a multi-national puzzle for scooterists everywhere. It is possible to solve it just with these clues.

 

Here is the scenario

 

  1. On the campsite there is a row of five tents in five different colours.
  2. In each tent sleeps a person with a different nationality.
  3. These five scooterists each came by a different mode of transport, prefer a different type of gear, and a different drink.
  4. No owners have the same scooter or preference for the same drink or drug.


The question is: Who is the tosser who came by car?
To prove that you're not guessing, specify his nationality, colour of his tent,
favourite drug and preferred drink.

Hints:

The Dutchman has a blue tent

The German rides a Vespa

The Brit drinks Absinthe

The Yellow tent is on the left of the Silver tent.

The Yellow tent’s owner drinks Vodka

The person who rides the Gilera likes ecstasy

The one in the brown tent smokes grass

The bloke in the centre tent drinks schnapps

The Spaniard sleeps in the first tent on the left

The scooterist who is tripping on magic mushrooms is camped next to the one who rides a Dragster

The man who rides Lambretta is camped next to the man who smokes grass

The scooterist who takes speed drinks beer

The Frenchman takes hash cake

The Spaniard is camped next to the green tent

The scooterist who takes magic mushrooms has a neighbour who drinks wine

 

This is based on a riddle devised by Einstein at the start of the last century (though obviously with fewer narcotics and scooterboys). He reckoned that 98% of the world’s population wouldn’t be able to solve it. If you reckon you have then send your answers to speed_demons_sc@hotmail.com and we will let you know if you are right. If you did it in less than 30 minutes then you are doing ok.
