The MoPedLar ride was the first 'big' event I ever attended as a newbie mopederist. That was 9 years ago.
Everyone was so nice once we finally got there (after going the wrong way a million times). I was ill-prepared for this rally after loaning out my Snark to the guy I bought it from and staying up 'til 5 am trying to cobble together a new set of forks for a Sebring I had just bought. A flat tire took me out of the game, but I still had a blast.
Lar, I know you and Kim, and a whole hoard of fine folks go above and beyond to make this event happen. It is exhausting, and I understand your decision to retire it.
Thanks for all the memories! I'll see you guys in Hershey or elsewhere!
