Atlanta, GA -- October 12-16 -- RESURGENCE III

October 13-16. See here for more details:

I went to this rally last year, it was a whole lot of fun. Over a hundred scooters showed up, of all shapes, types, and sizes. My favorite part was the Gymkhana, it was hilarious watching a guy destroy the obstacle course on a Big Ruckus, and cool to see all the guys on tiny scooters zip through it.

Join us for the Resurgence III Scooter Rally! Thanks to our gracious sponsors, we have many scoot-tastic events planned! The tentative schedule is as follows (we’re 99% sure, but events are subject to change):
