WTB Vespa 150cc < 10 years old

I have a co-worker who has never owned a scooter looking for a late model Vespa 150cc scooter in good condition. Like me, he's mechanically challenged and just wants something dependable to ride locally. He's a big guy so 50cc is out of the question. He has limited disposable income, but insists he ...

Re: Running of the Bulls Camping, July 13-15

Is it too late to register for this rally? I might not know if I can go until Thursday if I can go or not.

Re: Ride of the Patriots/Rolling Thunder

We need to leave IHOP by 7:15AM at the very latest to get in line on Fairfax Blvd. (Rte. 50). We leave our scooters and walk down to the opening ceremony. When the ceremony is over we walk back to our scooters and wait for the procession to begin. Everything is very well organized and being surround...

Indian Summer Rally, Richmond, VA

Props to everyone who made this year's Indian Summer Rally a success. I can't believe only 4 of us from the DC area made it to this rally. It was a little cool, but the people were warm and a good time was had by all. I encourage everyone to attend this rally next year.

The mornings are too bad but the evenings can get a little damp. I do avoid the Rte. 7 evening rush by taking backroads home through Wolf Trap Farm Par...
