What we're about
Founded in the summer of 2001, we are a group of riders in Minnesota who enjoy sharing the experience on our touring class motor scooters. Safe riding is stressed above all, though having fun is a close second.
Our rides usually take place from mid-April into early October. We tend to avoid busy highways and speeds seldom exceed 55 mph. Distances vary for each ride but often surpass 120 miles in a day and can reach 200 miles or more on some rides. They generally take place in central Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
Currently, those in our group own a variety of maxi scooters and similar vehicles. The key elements are they can maintain highway speeds, tend to be fairly quiet, and have a cruising range of 120 miles or more between fill-ups.
Through our mailing list, Minn-Maxfirstname.lastname@example.org, we discuss our adventures, exchange tips of gear & maintenance, and share our interests in these amazing machines. We are not a club and there are no membership fees or dues, though donations to pay for our meetup.com site are welcome.
Even if you don’t own a maxi scooter or never plan on joining in a ride, if you find the idea of Minn-Max appealing, you are welcome to join.
