    It was great to meet folks. No in-laws scheduled at my place for a while now, so hopefully next time I'll be able to go for the ride with you all!

    Hello all you Scootz:

    Scoot = Scooter Rider.
    Scootz = More than 1 one Scooter Rider.

    I am concerned that if I eat too much a the Belmont Food Carts, which is too easy for me to do, my scooter top speed will drop while I ride my Buddy 125. Anyone joining us have a smaller engine?

      This group is 50cc friendly, and will always ride at the pace of the tiny scoots. If you want to go faster, join OSC! They love the big bikes!

    • Jean B.

      Yeah, Sarah, that's part of what appealed to me about this group. I'm still happier at the lower speeds; not quite ready for the OSC rides, honestly! :-)

    Hello Scootz:

    Nobody looses the kickstart lever of their scooter, but I may have done that on this ride yesterday. Although several Scootz said the saw it on the road and avoided running over it, I went back on the route and did not find it. Scooterworks, a supplier for Genuine Scooters sells this part for $14.99. Although I have only once depended on using the kickstart, I might need it again.

    If you ever loosen a fastener, refasten it!!

    Nice meeting y'all @ Belmont FC. I'll have my scoot along next time. Remember - ride between the rain drops!

      Same here. Look forward to you joining us on the next ride. And consider the Oregon Scooter Club too. You guys on that 250 will fit right in...

    It was a great ride around the lake, and we didn't lose anyone this time. Nice group! The light rain was very tolerable.

  • Ernie G.

    Only a drier day would have made it better.

    May 18, 2013

  • Richard W.

    I thought it went well. We escape most of the rain. I enjoyed this event.

    I was excited to join you but it looks like we are coast bound a little earlier than planned, so won't be able to. Have fun today.

  • Sarah T

    Hey guys, we have someone in town visiting, and it looks like I'm not going to be able to make it after all - schedule conflicts - but Rick is in charge and have a great time!!

    • Gina M.

      Boooo... hoo! :( (I'm boo-hooing about you not being able to come, not to Rick being in charge).

      May 18, 2013

  • Rick F.

    I will be there on my scooter ready to ride!

    Is this plan still a go or no go?

    The Belmont courts are near us so I'll likely come down and say hi even if I don't join the ride.

    We will do a better job of staying together on this ride than we did last month.

    So what are the ride plans for the day, weather permitting?

    May 16, 2013

  • Rick R.

    I'm sorry to say that I won't be able to make it to this meet-up. A good friend invited me to his graduation ceremony and it turns out, it's at the same exact time. Those food carts always smell so good on Belmont and the weather has been so nice for scooter riding. Have fun everybody.

    I emailed the All Powerful Goddess of Weather, and she assures me it's going to be sunny, dry and warm on 5/18. I'll see all you happy Vikings there!

  • Richard W.

    I like them Food Carts and Ride Scooter while eating at the same time!

    I love the Viking soul food cart because I'm Norwegian and they have lefse!!

  • Rick R.

    I'm looking forward to this meetup. I've ridden by this food cart area and it smells so good. I'm looking forward to checking this out. Count me in. :-)
