This is a group for people of all ages and cultures that have discovered how awesome scooters are. The group will meet weekly or biweekly for happy hour to talk shop with, share knowledge, and learn from other scooter riders. We will go on group rides through and around Washington, DC. We will also host how to workshops on how-to properly maintain, and modify your scooter for optimal performance. Here is where it gets good, we will also rent space and hold scooter races! That's right, scooter races! If you have ever wanted to get into racing on a budget; here is your chance. You can buy a new scooter these days for less than $800.
Why scooters are awesome:
- a 50cc scooter gets 100-120mpg (cheap and green)
- you do not need a motorcycle license, registration, or insurance to ride
- you do not pay property tax on a scooter (stickin' it to the man)
- if you run a red light you may get killed, but you won't receive a ticket in the mail
- you will never pay for parking, in fact....you can park them right on the sidewalk anywhere
- get a group ride together and hit the streets and you are sure to laugh your ass off reaching blistering speeds of 35mph!
This is a fun loving group, and fairly cheap hobby for almost anyone. If you are thinking about buying a scooter, come and talk to some of the group members first for solid advise. We have fun, but we are not stupid. Safety is paramount!
