I can not attend, but for those of you who do ride, I suggest that you ride out onto Nicollet Island to see the Blind Lizard motorcycle rally near the North end (upstream end) of the island. Lots of old classic stuff and a real laid back attitude. A group of scooters passing through would be well recieved.

Yeah, we had a good ride. Went south on Lyndale, east on Minnehaha Parkway, north on Mississippi River Parkway, east across the Lake Street Bridge, north on Fairview, east on Pierce Butler, north on Snelling, west on Como, south on Cleveland, west on Kasota, south on 15th, west on 4th, south on 1st, around Nicollet Island, north on Hennepin and ended at Betty's.
11 scooters at the beginning, Lisa and Dan left when we passed by their house, and we picked up two scooters along the way, one good and one evil. So we ended up with as many as we started with.
Yeah, we rode by the motorcycles on Nicollet Island. One woman made a snide comment, and one guy tried to wave us to stop. So we confabed and decided not to stop, to just move along.
I fell behind at the first red light. Guess I'd better get my Primavera ass in gear so I can keep up!
So rather than slow everyone up, I cut out and went home the long way around. I saw quite a few scoots on the way -- the only one I remember clearly was a man on a dark-green vintage Vespa a few blocks off of Lyndale (sorry, I still can't identify models on sight yet), but I didn't recognize the driver.
At any rate, it was nice to sit in the sun & have a chat with everyone. Summer at last!
No worries, Jeremy -- after how-many months of shit weather on Sundays, it was enough just to get out and see the Scooterfolk. I did part of the Lake Minnetonka loop on the way home and that worked out just fine for me.
