Someone who really wants to be a hero should take this on. WE need more of YOU out there to help! This lack of cooperation is why this is very likely the LAST Skooter Du. The few people already helping are commiting a ton of time and energy so many people can come and have a fun time. If you come to this site and post or even just lurk it is time to put up or shut up.
I offered to help because last year was a blast and felt I owed it to all the people who organized and helped. This community is valuable and diverse.
If are'nt helping in some way, you can't gripe about this not happening next year.
I'd just like to add one thing...participating in the planning is FUN (at least for those of us who haven't done it year after year after year) and a good way to get to know your fellow scooterists.
Leading the city ride (esp. if Matty is good enough to put it together) would be easy! The prep time invloves riding it a few times so that you know where you're going and being aware of where any trouble spots might be. I'm sure Matt would be happy to share the fine points of leading a ride.
I remember seeing a lot of smaller bikes last year - I know a few of you got bigger ones, but where is everybody else?
Whether there's a city ride or not, I hope that all of you attending remember to offer a big thank you to Matt for putting so much into this for the last six years.
I wouldn't mind leading the ride. I'm not quite comfortable taking the freshly rebuilt lammy out on the big ride. My only issues are a.) i'm supposed to do the cooking, and b.) i've never led a ride before.
There was some talk of an outside source handling the cooking. If that is so I'd lead the ride.
For those who can't, or don't want to go 45mph, we really need someone to lead a ride. I can do a route just need someone to lead, and possibly blockers too.
I'll do it if Bob will loan me a super fast kymco Filly or an E-Go, Matt supplies me with a pint of vodka and a 6 pack of red bull for the ride, and John fashions a sippy cup holder out of zip ties and scrap metal. I know a sweet route the starts at the Deuce Deuce and ends up at Nye's. It could also be run in reverse, assuming there's not too much construction. Bring dollar bills, a taste for good martinis and bail money.
How 'bout a TGB delivery scooter. Should have a demo around at that time.
You can get off KP if you want to lead or help out on the urban ride. We'll get some other vols to flip burgers. Job's still yours if you want it, though.
