I have a big dream of doing this. Money is the key. I imagine this being an expensive endeavor.

Best two places to follow the Scooter Cannonball:

http://followride.com/ will get you updates as riders reach their check-in spots for the day.

http://modernvespa.com/forum/viewtop...363040#1363040 which also gets check-ins and posts from the riders and/or support folks.

Not all riders have gps trackers that will show up on one or the other of the ride maps and two riders don't have a device that will send to either but there has already been one rider drop out and another who had a crash that fortunately didn't do major damage to either the rider or the scoot.

Photos from Day 0 and Day 1 are linked in the Modern Vespa thread.

I wish all the riders a safe journey and a good finish.

If you want to know who is riding what and their handicap see http://www.scootercannonball.com/riders/ Lowest is a 1948 Salabury 85 and the highest is a 2009 Burgman 650.
