Hey folks,
I'm a visiting scooterist ('79 P200e) from San Francisco... Actually a Minneapolis native that's lived in SF for 16 years. I'm in town for through Monday and I'll stop by Pizza Luce this Sunday to say hey y'all. But if anybody wants to get a cup of coffee before the ride or sometime during the week, I'd love to meet some new folks!
Also, what are the good Vespa shops in town now?
Any cool shows or things to do this week?
Anybody renting out scoots?
If so: A cheap place to buy an xxl helmet?
I missed a couple of you at the WOI rally, I saw some scoots heading back up Lake St. as I was getting there, but I did get to meet Kev n' Sev, and some Citroen buffs. Good times!

Hey Nick, glad to see that you finally got logged on.
The only new Vespa shop that I'm aware of is Moto Primo. As far as shops that deal with older stuff, Scooterville is the first place that I'd check. Definitely worthy of a stop. You never know what they'll be working on, and they do sell helmets. Midwest Cycle Supply has a decent selection of lids as well.

A couple scooter friendly coffee shops are Betty's Bikes and Buns and Bob's Java Hut.

Check the Events page (here) for a list of rides and other stuff going on.

Thats all I can think of for now.
-K
