I am sure most of you have either bought something or at the least heard of Amazon? Well for those that don’t know, you can buy just about anything on Amazon from computers, books to toilet paper and I encourage you to do so. Just before you begin to buy anything on Amazon, I ask you to remember this on thing…come to Talmadge House first. On the side bar of our homepage there is an Amazon Search box or click here, by starting your Amazon shopping spree from there we (our company THOUGHT OUT) get affiliation credits that help us a lot for selling our products.
Back in the summer of 2004 I purchased this Vento Triton R4 Scooter after collecting on an insurance claim (it covered the cost because I repaired the damaged truck myself). After driving this scooter almost every day I could, and when weather permitted, it soon starting getting darker early in the day as the calendar year progressed. Along the year I found many other upgrades during my internet searches for this scooter, so of course I did these upgrades. The searches however fell short in finding a better and brighter headlight so that I could see easier at night. It seems Vento really missed the mark on the brightness of the headlight and nothing could be had anywhere to improve this headlight. I quickly realized that I would have to develop my own plan for this problem, so off I went. I created a very low cost but 30% brighter headlight and tail / brake light kit. The only draw back was I had to purchase parts for this kit in very high quantities. Needless to say I made these high quantity purchases while also thinking I could just sell them over time knowing that I had a few connections on scooter web forums that could be an outlet to sell them. I created the very simple html web page with a Paypal buy now button, to my amazement I could not believe how well they sold. In the first two months I sold all the initial kits, so I ordered another round of kits and to this day we still sell them.
This is how the THOUGHT OUT…Company was initially started.
So today is somewhat a sad day, it is time for the scooter to go, but also a very positive one with all that this little yellow scooter has brought to me.

In Connecticut this scooter technically does not require registration. Even though this scooter was purchased and titled with a 49cc engine, to our surprise during the many upgrades listed below we found this model was built with the quality 100cc Yamaha engine from the factory. Driving as a fair day scooter, it is very clean. Extremely fast +55-60 MPH. Only Amsoil synthetic oil used for oil tank and transmission. mileage 1387. Includes all the non stock upgrades plus a custom cover and a matching full face helmet, unused (with cover) Continue reading →
THOUGHT OUT…Company introduced today the pre release of NAJA King, the first quality portable media device holder. And just like our ever so liked PED3 desktop older, the NAJA King rotates for wide screen viewing on your iPhone and iPod Touch. The 3 foot (2 foot shown) soft flexible cable is slender yet developed for secure form-able positioning. With small coiling abilities it is compact enough for travel and it is a great solution for those long flights.
Coming in the next few weeks models will be available for around $40 for iPhone and iPod Touch. And best yet, like all THOUGHT OUT products it is made in the USA. We are filing a patent today.
