What we're about

Motor-Scooter International, now in its seventh year of x-treme motor-scooter endurance racing, remains committed to testing the limits of riders and their scooters. As one of our event posters bluntly says: Many scooterists talk about extreme endurance racing, but very few actually do it. If you feel that you have what it takes to engage in competition riding, and that your scooter is up to the task, by all means consider joining us for go at the road.

My software is a little different because I'm the so-called organizer of this, but the first thing you have to do is join this meet-up. You don't have to pay any money to join. You may do so on a trial basis. But if you pay the $10.00 dues fee to join, you will automatically receive your plastic photo-ID Racing License. Please send a bust-shot pix to this e-mail:, with 'LICENSE" in the subject box. Once you are issued a license, you're exempted from further dues. The portal to join the group is: After you join the meet-up, go to the Message Board, and scroll down to the last couple of posts (by date), and read them.

You enter a race by giving your RSVP at a given race portal. For example, to enter the California Coastal Cannonball, click on the link of that particular meetup, and RSVP. You have to pay the entry fee to perfect and complete the RSVP.
