Not that I want to discourage anyone from taking the initiative to organize rides, but...

That is the same day (and close to the time – 2:00 pm) of the long standing 1st and 3rd of the month Sunday Pizza Luce` meet/ride. Feel free to stop by to check it out if you haven’t before.

Obviously you are free to do your own thing if you want, but you may have a hard time drumming up participation on that day and time.

I thought the sunday Luce' ride was a vintage scooter thing exclusively? Is that not the case?

That's cool. So is there any hazing involved? Because I've seen 'Coal Miners Daughter' and read about what Hells Angels go though...

My observations after 4 years:
For the most part the people that show up on Sundays (in recent years anyway) are interested in pretty much all scooters, riding, and a variety of other things. In general, they are a friendly bunch to all. The only thing that seems to universally be exclusive about it is the general disdain for unsafe group riders. Riding in a group can be a great experience, but does carry certain risks. Having people show up that want to set individual speed/maneuverability records amongst the pack tends to not go well for anyone involved. If you can deal with that, stop on by sometime and check it out.

Oh yeah, and no hazing is involved unless you consider introducing yourself to a bunch of strangers hazing.

So what your saying is you don't suggest I show up and introduce myself to a bunch a cats I don't know with wicked scooters, and then proceed to showboat and act like a cock-smoker?.

It could require some restraint, but I think I'm up to it. :-)

Oh thanks, there's three years of hypnotherapy down the drain. I swore I'd never think about that scene again...

Seriously, that's some f**ked up sh*t right there. Great movie though.

Hey Scott, thanks for keeping me in the loop. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. The last few weekends that you had rides I had been out of town. Most recently the Duluth run. I will try and make it this Sat. Thanks again Scott
