Earlier this month, we learned about the "No Age Limit" adventure of Bob and Buddy, two old scooter riders who wanted to see the America of the Lincoln Highway using Piaggio MP3 scooters. The Lincoln Highway was the first transcontinental highway in the U.S. and was conceived and completed in the early part of the last century. While the road is historic, Piaggio is using more up-to-date technology to provide web visitors to check in on the two men.

Daily updates can be seen on this website, which now includes a slick Google Earth feature that shows today's location for the seventy-something riders. There are also a lot of pictures updated to a Google PhotoMap and there is a Google ProgressMap that gives multiple updates throughout the day - just in case you wanted to head out and ride along with them perhaps. If constant web-based updates aren't your thing, then feel free to wait for the PBS documentary on the Highway to Harley riders, which will feature Bob and Buddy.
