Meeting up, going to rides, let's get together.

So of my favorite scooting is meeting other forum members.

Recently Conchscooter made it to Asheville and we got to have breakfast and a ride. Then, a couple weeks after I got to meet Cdwise in Houston for a beer. Good time with both.

Monday night gonna meet cbolling and rugbyforlife for dinner in Liberty SC. Anyone available, shoot me a pm and I'll give you the details.

So what y'all planning for rides this summer? Post em up and maybe others will join in or meet you on your way to share coffee or lunch.

I'm giving serious thought to Amerivespa. Who is going? Post it up with tentative route.

Every year I think about scooting the ozarks but never made it. Anyone going?

If anyone knows of other rallies, post them here too. ( there is also a separate thread for just rally notices.)

Let's use this thread to get riding and meeting up!

This is a great idea.

The only definite ride I have planned at this time is a 2 week trip out West. I'll be driving out to Albuquerque the last weekend in May, unloading my bike and riding through NE AZ, UT, SW CO and N. NM the first couple of weeks in June. I'll be taking my Versys not one of my scooters.

I do plan on doing some rides to N. GA and NC this year but no definite dates set yet. I'd like to bring up my Kymco at least once and ride with some other small scooters/bikes.

Great! Well, scoot or bike, I hope some folks out west meet up with you. Sounds like a great trip.

And, if you get my way I'd love to meet up and say "hi"!

Next trip it's in two weeks up the west coast from Mexico to Canada for my brother's 50th foe two weeks. After that I'm not sure if I will it to Amerivespa or when I will get to Colorado. Klav, maybe we could meet up on Colorado if schedules permit

Funny that you should be from Asheville. In May, I will take my 180cc scooter down through the Skyline Drive and BRP. I heard Asheville has much to offer in terms of craft brews so I'm certainly headed there.

You won't be disappointed. JB, YJ and I would be glad to show you around.
A trip north on your route is on my book.

JB, I am not planning on going to Scooting the Ozarks this year but maybe next year. It would be great if we could get a bunch of people from ADV together there. I did go a couple of years ago and had a great time. I did a ride report at the time: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=921267

cdwise, if we can somehow meet up in CO that would be great but I'll probably only be in CO a couple of days. Once it gets a little closer to my ride and I have more definite plans I'll start a thread and post my planned schedule. I'll post a link to that thread. Right now I expect to pass through SW CO around 10-11 June.

JB,

I plan to ride that way some time this summer. My brother lives there, so I can crash with him while I explore. I went last year and took day trips up/down the BRP. No definite dates yet, so I'll let you know when it's planned and maybe we can join up.

Rick

It will depend on whether I go to Amerivespa or not. If I don't I will probably be in Colorado. If I do obviously not. :)

Cool, lots of possibilities of folks meeting up!

Asheville is a great place to scoot- craft beers, Sierra Nevada is open, New Belgium coming soon, hiking, waterfalls, zip lines, Blue Ridge Parkway, close to the Dragon and lots more!

As Driller says, he, YJ and I would love to show you around!

Oh crap! We'll be in Hendersonville, but we're planning on leaving Friday. That might change now. And if so, it'll give me another lunch at Hot Dog World too.

We'll be in the Silverado, so no scootin' for us.

JB, odd that you would pick Liberty for a meet-up. I'm working on the same thing for whatever FSSNOC'ers may live in this area. FSSNOC is Four Stroke Singles National Owners Club. I've been a member for over 15 years. BTW, most scooters are four stroke singles so they qualify for membership. If I can get enough interest up to put this on , I'll post up here. Don't need to be a member to join in, all will be welcome. Just coffee/lunch and talk.

Meltdown is only about 4 miles from me. Am planning to be there. If you like bikes of an unusual nature this is the place to be. Has anyone here ever seen a Hercules wankle engine bike? A guy I know rode one in a couple years ago. Lots of classics, café races etc.
