[VIDEO] 12-hour Scooter Ride

So, I finally signed up here. I've been invited before but I've been busy riding and attending to my other hobbies. It's great to know there are other ADV scooterists here. Howdy!

Here's a video I made from my trip to South Lake Tahoe from San Diego last year. Enjoy!

Rex -- Was that the scoot you won with your very clever vid/music?

I was hoping to go this year, but only from SF to tahoe, but on a 125 so no freeway



nice music and editing!

Welcome Rex...

I have bumping around here longer than over at MV, and this place is great fun.

Will you be riding up to Guernville for the Bastard's Russian to Ride rally?

You will find some other friends over in the roadbike sections too.

I did Highway One, River Road and Jenner Gap on my 10-speed Schwinn Varsity back in the day. I would love to scoot it!

What kind and size of scoot is this? 20k? Nice! Nice vid!
Do you know how to wave at bikers? I've waved at scoot riders before but they never know to wave.

I just got back from Monterey for the Red Bull Grand Prix race. I had an awesome time with my sportbike friends. I took my Suzuki SV650 this time. Video coming soon. Thanks again guys.

@TebKLR - yes it is. It's the Vespa GTV that Piaggio gave me :)
@techguy - great to be here, and good to see you here too. I won't be attending the Russian to Ride Rally unfortunately. I've used up quite a few vacation times and I have some left reserved for Europe next month.
@AngryScot - just ride and ride well. That's what we're here for right? Have fun!
@Yokomo - are you kidding? I wave all the time. My Vespa is a 250cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke with FI. It currently has 26K+ and still going. It's getting less riding since owning a BMW K75 http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=601875
