    not to rain on everyone's parade. I want to share a less than stellar experience with Amerivespa.org. I had a series of issues with getting my badge and other items this weekend. Subsequently I was not able to go to the concert , Now I take responsibility for the issues not getting to the registration, but when I contacted Amerivespa about getting the Tshirt and Rally Bag sent to me, as I had already paid for that, they simply refused and said that I was basically out of luck. needless to say Im a bit frustrated, out $70.00 and have nothing to show for it... I did go on some nice rides, but even with out this Event I woould have gone on some nice rides... I take issue with the SOL attitude and response I got from the Amerivespa contact. I work in Support and customer service and this is certainly not how I would treat any of my customers. In any case that is my rant...

    She is all smiles I think " smiles " should be her new name that's my vote

    • Jeff

      Oy maybe since we're "Sqooterheads"­ she can be "Smileyhead" !

      July 3, 2013

    • Perry

      Okay easy does it let's not chase her off.

      July 3, 2013

  • Jeff

    Ok, now for something totally positive: I vote we declare Jennifer B Best Newbie in the group!!! :)

    • Greg B.

      I've known her for 2 years at her old club. I agree 100%

      Oh my gosh, you guys are embarrassing the heck out of me!! I am delighted to be part of this group :-)

    Greg, Ive been trying to communicate with their Rep and have not gotten any response to my last emails... for such a large organization they sure have fallen short on the customer service end.

    July 2, 2013

  • Greg B.

    Sam, I'm right there with you. After showing cars for over 25 years. I entered my first national scooter show. The worst Judging I've ever seen. Scooters were moved to the wrong class so they could win. A new class was created afterwards so somebody else could win. A scooter in pieces that didn't even run won one class.

    Never again. It's very sad Vespa name is tied to this event.

    July 2, 2013

    • Jennifer B

      Oh, Jeez!! Are you OK? How about your scoot? I never ever want that to happen to me!!

      1 · July 2, 2013

    • Wagehog

      It'll happen to you one of these days ;-) I was fine & my Buddy was fine. I just had a bruised ego & bruised rib. It happened on the 1st day, and as you saw, it didn't effect any of my rides.

    For those who did not stay for the band Saturday, I know it was late, but they were awesome! ride yesterday, even with being chased by the police was fun too!

      Did the police catch you Meg? :)

    Well,Duhhhhhhhhhh, YOU WERE ON GRAVEL !!!!!!

    It's inevitable that as hosts of such an epic event in our own city, our various responsibilities don't allow us to experience the event with the same sort of unbridled joy as those from out of town or as those not so involved with the planning. But I am a good observer of people, and I observed many Amerivespa attendees having the time of their lives this past weekend. This one included. On behalf of all the Sqooterheads, we were thrilled to be a part of this Amerivespa.

    This was my first Amerivespa even though I've been in the squadron since 2008. Things went fine, until the dinner on Saturday night. It didn't appear to be Amerivespa's fault however. I did have a good time just the same.

    June 30, 2013

  • Greg B.

    VCOA is so screwed up! Everything else was fine.

    June 30, 2013

  • Jennifer B

    Thanks to all my new friends, I can't imagine a better time w/ a nicer group of people!! Scooter Squadron & Sqooterheads- YOU ROCK!!!

    Great days and of course the English Beat/Dave Wakeling were fantastic on Friday night. Amazing scooters on display on Sunday.
    San Diego was the perfect location.

    It was an epic event. The scooters. the music, the food, the rides, the police??? Everyone had a great time due to the efforts on a lot of people. Meg without your running of the meetings and facebook things would been rough. To all of you who assisted on the rides, Thank You! I tossed some members a vest and said your helping! They did a perfect job. Geoff, Reid, Sam, Wagehog, Sherry T, Jack, Daniel, Joe K, Susan K, Matt M. and many others whose names currently escape me Thank You. We had rides larger than anything we have ever done and we came through with flying colors. The naysayers when our participation was announced said we couldn't pull it off can now eat some humble pie. Our friends in the Sqooterhead group lead by Electric Steve did a great job.

    Hello, even though I will not be there in person I will be there in spirit. It's interesting how life rolls the dice, and one is pulled away from one of the most rewarding activities in the scooter world. For all of you, please have an excellent time for I know you will, esp. on Saturday night. But the rides too. Take care and post a lot of pics.

    June 23, 2013

  • erich

    I signed up for some rides and thought I was printing it out in English, looks more like gibberish, some weird I.T. thing. Is there some place I can find the rides I have signed up for?

    June 22, 2013

    • Perry

      I show you on the King of the Mountain ride. RSVP's are sent to that ride's leader. So, no...

      June 23, 2013

  • Steve E.

    Wont be able to attend since we will be en route back to CA during that time. I will be towing the scooter though and plan to attend events after 4th of July. Hope you all have fun see you soon.

    You can register at Amerivespa.org. Regarding on site registration, they may have already sold out of the Saturday night dinner.

    June 17, 2013

    • Sammy

      Oh? How can I find out for sure? At check-in Thursday? I just registered yesterday but received no notice of any sold out events. It'll be a bummer if I have to go home to PB&J Saturday night instead...jk, lol!

      June 17, 2013

    • Meg

      If they did not change the registration site, you are okay. At one of our planning meetings they were saying that they were close to full for the dinner, so you are probably just fine.

      June 18, 2013

  • Vincent M.

    @sammy your amerivespa registration gets you into the dinner Saturday

    June 17, 2013

    SDSS Members, DON'T miss this event. No telling when it will come back to San Diego. $65 is a bargain for four days of rides, meeting other scooterists, and all accompanying activities.

    1 · June 13, 2013

    • Wagehog

      Really!! Lets go peeps. It's our town, so lets show it by showing up in droves :-)

      4 · June 14, 2013

  • Meg

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
