I had a conversation with a wine industry guy from Atlanta who is interested in putting together an organized scooter only ride/rally from Stillwater to St. Paul in conjunction with a local charity event that is part of "Winefest". The particulars are being fleshed out at this point. The basics would involve a ride beginning in Stillwater at 10AM, May 13th (Saturday). The route would be scooter friendly (35ish MPH) and would conclude at Solo Vino/Zander Cafe in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood.
The charity aspect would benefit U of M Pedeatric Hospital. They're looking to gauge interest from local scooter enthusiasts/clubs in participation.
I think it is intended as a charity/fine food event and less so a drunken wine fling. Not that there's anything...........
Who would like to be counted among the interested? More here as it develops.

I'm interested. Especially if it involves food from Zander. It's on my calendar.

That sounds fun, but it's right in the middle of our shooting schedule, so I can't really commit to anything without knowing whether we'll be filming on the weekends.

Sounds awesome. I love scooters, I love wine, I love food. If only I spoke Italian, it would be perfect. I'm pretty sure I'm in.

I'm camping with the scouts that weekend, so I'm out.

I suppose someone could organize a ride to Stillwater for the start. Run the route backwards from St. Paul....

I didn't know you were into porn. Can you get me a part? I could play Ron Jeremy, the human hedgehog....

Mine is a typical summer reply:

I'm in if I'm in town.
