Hey, SoCal Scooterists! Since this is a fairly last-minute gathering, I'm not making it an official ride.
The new Genuine Dealer in Thousand Oaks is having a big opening celebration next week, Thursday-Sunday, but Saturday will be the big day. Thousand Oaks Powersports currently carries Yamaha, Kawasaki and KTM. One of the owners is is the former CEO of Guitar Center. They're serious about scooters and very excited about carrying the Genuine line. Genuine's dealer rep will be on hand as well.
Of course any type of scooter is welcome on the ride. We'll probably be riding through the Valley on Ventura Blvd., then taking the long, roundabout way to Thousand Oaks via Mulholland Hwy. This is a fairly challenging, twisty route and the speeds along parts of it are as fast as 55mph. It's almost 2-hours one-way from Studio City. Please take all of this into account.
We'll be stopping along the way at the Rock Store and will probably be getting lunch somewhere in Thousand Oaks.
Meet Saturday at 10:30am.
Location: Laurel Canyon and Ventura in Studio City. Parking lot behind Kinko's, Mexicali, Gap, Banana Republic, Koo Koo Roo, etc., approximately 12175 Ventura Blvd, 91604. I'll be in the Northwest corner of the lot, behind Koo Koo Roo and back. Look for a light blue Vespa.
