Very few "nice classics" are regular riders on the TNR. It's mostly Stellas, Becky on her Bajaj, and the occasional other person showing up.

You'd be welcome.

Yup, just show up when you can. Tonight we had, I believe 6-7 scooters. Some vintage, but not many. Mainly daily riders and stellas. You will be welcomed! Don't Worry!

Oh yeah, I showed up last week on a Buddy! (Pure Plastic Auto) Show up sometime, you'll be more than welcome. (especially when Dave's Atomic Fireball pukes every few minutes.... he might need a plastic ride home....)

Ha! It was a fouled plug! I had it happen to me in Denver also and sure enough, the plug was black and oily....

I am going to stay home tonight as I am still supper tired from the last 2 days rides.

So tonight was the wettest TNR ever, also tied for the smallest TNR ever. There were two people - me and Dave (Vino Dave, not dmarquis), and we did a slightly shortened Minneapolis route (we cut across 50th St. and missed the winding part by the creek). At the worst of it we could barely see, but the cool rain felt good, and riding through a two-inch deep puddle at 40mph is an eye-opening and body-douching experience. It was a lot of fun, and we missed all y'all who were so sweet you might melt in a little rain...

I am on the far left and way, w2ay back. It was a pretty good ride at Stellabration. Only city thou as there isn't many country roads. Stop and go kinda sucked, but it was the best they could do.
