I had to vote "no" because I work until 1030 Tues - Fridays and at 830 am Sat morns, Which means I can't make it to TNR either. (would I even be welcome since I own a Chinese made scoot , HA HA! will you make me ride DH's?)
then sometimes I work 10 hours on Sat's or I will pick up a Sunday shift.

I have a scooter posse going already also and we are trying to get something together that would alternate between Sat nights and Sun morns.

My best friend just bought a scoot a couple weekends ago (oops, a Baron, darn those Chinese scoots!) and my coworker got one last summer. We usually end up at Tracy's Saloon (on east Franklin) on Tues or Thurdays after we get off of work. If anyone happens to be cruising by and sees three scoots parked out front, that's probably us girls! Stop and say "hi".

I also have two nieghbors that bought scoots last year also and have shown interest in a group ride.

Thanks for the enthusiasm!!! I'm hoping to make it every Friday but obviously everyone has different schedules... If you can make it any Friday, just send a reply and we'll figure out how many people are comin'... Or just show up!

This will be a fun route, so tell a friend, heck bring a friend...

Sorry Andy, somehow I've convinced my wife to let me have Tuesday nights, and while a Friday night ride would be fun, there's no way I want to risk losing it all by pushing for two rides a week! Good luck with it.

And yoyo, we welcome Chinese scoots on the TNR - though we *will* make fun of you if it breaks down! Of course, we make fun of anybody who breaks down, including my headlight debacle. But it's all in good fun.

I'm answering maybe only because I'd do it if I could swing it. But between going out of town every other weekend in the summer and spending a lot of my "kitchen pass points" on Tuesday, weekly friday's are a tough sell for me.

But if I'm in town and can make it, I'll bet I'd have fun! Nothing like going past block E with a pack of scooters when there are crowds around.

(Are leg shields bullet proof?)

I answered maybe, too. I'd certainly be up for a ride on any Fridays that my happy hour obligations don't render me unsafe for riding anything other than the city bus . . .

There is a group that goes out on friday nights already! Mostly plastic and sport scooters, but anybody that can keep up is more than welcome to ride with us, pretty aggresive riding but safe none the less... We go all around Minneapolis and St. Paul friday nights, more socializing than anything, but who doesnt like doing wheelies and endos! oh yeah, old people with metal tanks, I mean scooters! stone arch bridge anyone??? Michelle I am looking in your general direction!!!

I can make it to occasional Friday rides but certainly not all the time. Friday is a high demand night.
