Moped Lar (OFMC) /

I pace the ride at about 25 mph, so as long as you can do 25 mph, you should be able to keep up just fine.

See you at the ride!

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

We are bringing stock bikes this year -- don't worry you won't be alone

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Stocker and 225lbs on it.

Dont worry about being last, hahahahaaaa.....

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Moped Lar (OFMC) /

Stockers almost always finish the ride without incident. It's the kitted peds that usually end up on the side of the road waiting for the chase vehicle to pick them up.

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Anyone from central Ohio making the trip?

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

That isn't always the way it is but it seems that some people just think they can throw a kit at a moped and away they go. A kitted moped can do rides just as long as a stocker and better. Prepare accordingly. I won't be on a moped but a small MC but when I had a well kitted Tomos it would run day in and day out without issues at whatever distances I threw at it. She was sold after 11 years with still the original Airsal kit and modifications and no issues with endurance/compression/mechanicals etc. Again prepare the bike properly and you will not have issues. See you all in New Jersey, only a couple of weeks away.

Get that trailer and get down here. It's gonna be an epic ride this year. Hoping to break the 100 rider mark!

To all ride Attendees......please use the next week to get your moped into riding "shape". The ride is 63 miles long and can take it's toll on bikes that are not well maintained. We usually experience about a 10% breakdown rate each year and we'd like to reduce that percentage as much as possible. The four most common breakdown causes are:

Flat/blown tires......please replace bald and cracked tires before the ride.

Clogged fuel filters....please check and replace your inline fuel filter if needed. Make sure your gas tank is clean and free of scaly rust.

Clogged main carb jets.....If you don't have an inline filter, you may want to install one, especially if you have a rusty tank. Check your carb bowl for sediment and clean it out if needed.

Running out of gas....Please make sure you start the ride with a full tank of gas. There will be a gas stop at the mid-point of the ride. Please take advantage of this opportunity. Don't rely on the chase vehicle to bail you out if you run out of gas. There will be a very limited amount of emergency gas available.

Please also check your drive chains for proper tension and lubrication.

Thanks and have a safe ride to NJ!!!(edited)

Stoked, Stoked, Stoked, Stoked. Just need to put the Safari back together in a week haha.

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Yeah - the running out of gas is an issue that simply should not be.

Larry Lies - sometimes he breaks over 25MPH and hits 30MPH.

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Larry Lies - sometimes he breaks over 25MPH and hits 30MPH.

only when it's raining or when I'm hungry.

I'm not commenting on this speed topic as sometimes I think my only purpose on "Death" rides is to give room for Jersey kids to pull in just in front of me. And to give Rob someone to holler at. Cataract surgery next Tuesday may prevent my attending as hem surgery did last year. Seems like I'm cursed.

Can't decide what to ride anyway. Extreme thirst is a valid speed reason too.

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Jerry, postpone your eyeballs. Larry's ride comes once a year.

And just for the record, I holler at everyone.

Jerry, you can ride with eye patches. Just follow the smell of 2-stroke oil. Seriously, I hope you can make it, but your health must come first. Best of luck whatever you decide to do. We'd love to have you though.(edited)

1 week bump....pray for nice weather!

Jerry Franek /

The War Department has spoken and I'm going to miss the ride. The eye quack told her "no way". Turns out my cat surgery is trickier than the usual ones and he prohibits dirt and vibrations. And I'm here to tell you that I've been riding with a patch and the lack of depth and peripheral perception is not safe, seriously.

I hope everyone has a safe, fun day. Actually, Lar, I'll pray for a couple inches of snow and a postponement.

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Moped Lar (OFMC) /

We'll miss you Jerry. Hope your surgery goes well.

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Will miss you buddy....gotta take care of those peepers though. Hope they turn out well for ya. Now about that praying for snow.........

Sorry Jerry......but the weather forecast for next Saturday is looking good, although a bit cool. Let's hope it stays this way.

RobK and I will launch this ride one way or another, but I would still bring rain gear just in case. I'll have my "Frogg Toggs" in my saddlebags.(edited)

Re: 11th Annual MopedLar Ride....May 25th, NJ

Despite the worry, rain actually made it more fun last year.
