A couple of weeks back I bought a Motobecane Mobylette 50V for me and a Peugeot 103 for my wife. I had not ridden a moped since I was 16, and that was an awfully long time ago when I was a 16 y/o in England and used one to get to work (a Garelli).
Found this site and then found this thread. Yay! I exclaimed to the missus...people that like mopeds AND footieball.
Must confess I am finding my enthusiasm for this tournament somewhat lacking for partisan reasons... It's pathetic, shameful and galling that England lacked the intestinal fortitude, will and skill to qualify, and for me that's why it's so hard to watch. I'll get a little more into it later into the competition.
Live in LA and am a fairly regular attendee at the LA Galaxy matches...I stand with LA Riot Squad... much mayhem and inebriation usually ensue. www.lariotsquad.net
I'll be going on my first rally in a few weeks. Myron's Ride 62 July 6th. 56 miles along Pacific Coast Hwy...Can't wait.
