The Seattle Scooter Meetup Group* Monthly Meetup

Cafe Racer is our regular meeting location. We hope to see you all there on the Second Wednesday.

Meetup for socializing and coffee 6PM, ride out around 6:30PM.

Looks we are in for some damp weather on Wednesday, but the temperature should be fine. We'll do a short ride if it's raining, longer if it's just mist. Since it's Lincoln's Birthday and almost Valentine's Day, too, we'll find an appropriate place  for warm food and beverages after the ride.

We ride rain or shine, however if it's raining we tend to stick to the north end of Seattle to avoid bridge crossings. All Seattle Scooter Meetup rides are suitable for all sizes of scooters, from mopeds to maxis and for riders of all experience levels. We always end up at a restaurant or pub, but staying to eat or hang out afterward is optional. Your co-organizers,

Alex & Melinda

    Hey there... where or what route do you guys typically take?.. Surface streets? Freeway?...

      Several motorcycle glove brands have gloves that are insulated and use membrane liners that work like Gortex. I haven't shopped for gloves recently, but if you call around to local shops, you should be able to find them. Alex installed heaters in the handlebars for his scooter. They run off the battery. A slightly complex but doable DIY project. If you come to the Meetup, he can show you how he did it.

      Alex and I don't have a car and we ride year 'round. Having the right gear makes all the difference. We wear full motorcycle suits--jacket and pants. I wear an Olympia suit. With a zip-out insulated, waterproof lining it's good for 4 seasons around here. Good boot, good gloves, and a good full-face helmet and you're all set for 4-season riding. It's an investment up front, but you'll enjoy riding a lot more.

    Hi Alex, I also have a 2003 Aprilia Atlantic 500 with the same problem. Is there a certain year and model of honda voltage regulator I should look for? Thanks

    • Alex

      PS. The Honda parts will be about $75, the Aprilia part is $175.

    Did you try Bent Bike at both locations?

      Sorry I didn't see you post sooner. You can use an inexpensive Honda voltage regulator to replace the weak Ducati Electric one that came on your scooter.
