Hi, I'm new here. New to scootering, too.

After exploring this site a bit, it seems like it emphasizes vintage scooters with manual transmissions. I have an almost-new Vespa. Would I be welcome on TNR or The Regulars rides? Or will I be like the proverbial fat kid on the playground?

You'd be hard pressed to find a "Regulars" ride anymore, but the TNR rides are open to anything scooterish. I think there's a yahoo group or something, but show up to one of those and you'll get the scoop.

You'd be welcome on the TNR rides, see http://groups.google.com/group/TuesdayNightRide Started by Stella riders, but attended by others (Honda, Kymco, Vespa, Bajaj etc.)

The Regulars don't exist anymore. Not sure about the Pizza Luce Sunday rides, I haven't gone in a couple of years.

Depending on the size and speed of your Vespa, you may wish to check out MinnMax http://www.maxiscooters.org/

Thanks, nate & Brad.

Yeah, MinnMax is a bit much; I have a 150cc and my bf has a 50cc Buddy, so we use plan on using them for short errands, and cruising at 30 mph and under. Toodling around town rather than long, fast tours on highways. I've gone 55 mph on mine, but it's not something I relish (although, after taking the Basic Rider Course this weekend, I'd feel a lot more comfortable doing it now).

Too bad about the Pizza Luce group. We're moving this weekend to within 6 blocks of there!

[Edit]
Oh, and if I weren't moving this week, I'd be at the TNR. Maybe next week.
[/Edit]

Thanks,

Lou.

I think people still meet occassionally at Luce, it's just not a "Regulars" ride. Just a "minnescoota" ride open to all.
