Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

What's up world.

The Speculaters of Minneapolis and The Cream City Cranks would like to present:

Midwest Midrage

These two groups of wild and crazy kids will be hosting a mini-rally on the 4th of July weekend in that there city where there moms be, Eau Claire, WI.

If you don’t have to stay in your respective cities/towns/villages and spend time with your real family, come spend time with your moped family.

We plan on definitely hitting up the big fireworks show in Eau Claire on the 4th and there is thoughts of making a camping trip one/two nights, and a ride to the Leininkugel’s brewery in Chippewa Falls for a brewery tour. We'll probably also hit up Water Street. Team 19, we'll kick it some other awesome way.

Look here for more info, i.e: when a real itinerary is formed.

However, knowing us/The Cranks, most of this will be done on the fly.

email: thespeculaters@gmail.com if you wanna get all personal about it.

The Speculators, wasn't that like Iggy Pop's band when he was 13 or somthing?

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

i dunno salty, but you should come to this and see if iggy shows up.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

The Specs are baby Cranks.

I'll have to pass. As much as I love y'all, I dug myself in deep with my folks when I missed most of Father's Day for Bomb Prom. No more outings on family holidays for me.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

boo :(

nice to see you this weekend though laurie!

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

i will go but only if somebody meets me at the house on the rock on the way there or back....

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

i'm down... we're leaving milwaukee thursday the third to ride up there. if you can get to milwaukee by like... 3 pm, we can go up to house on the rock together

MIDWEST MIDRAGE!

ameeericuh!

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

pourfict! i will bring some gnarly illegal indiana fireworks! does anybody have a loner ped though? The reason I'm gonna be up there is that i'm moving out of my house and need to dump shit at my moms house for the two weeks i don't have a home. i don't think i'll have room for my moped and all my shit in my VW hatchback but i'm sure i can make something work if nobody's got one or if other people who don't actually have mopeds need one.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

kate, if you work that hard to come we'll have a loaner for you for sure. you could take a bus up to milwaukee and come with us cranks if you want to

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

kate.

you can't come unless you bring that beautiful moped.

j/k please come, bring dallas. and other bropeds...are there other bropeds?

Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

I will probably go, not sure if work will get in my way or not here. I can bring Kate a loaner if I go, maybe arrange a loaner even if I don't.

woooaaah... How many people do the Speculators and Cream City Cranks have? I could go to this... But can you guarantee it would be super awesome?

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

WHOA. Ben, you're from Menomonie, you could ride your moped to the rally. you have to come.

i can't say anything for sure about how many cranks there are, but i know that graham and brian will definitely be there from milwaukee. if we get this hyped enough, im sure it'll be easy for them to pull more cranks.

for the specs, me, noel, and victor will be there for sure. wade probably won't make the fourth, but he might make the rest of the weekend.

i've already let all the minneapolis people i know about the ride and would love to see a huge turn out from them.

i'm pretty stoked about this, even though i know i'll miss a lot because of work, but i will be in eau claire and you better believe ill come out after im done for the day.

there will definitely be more planned about this, and we'll let everyone know when it is planned a bit more.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

BTW, we're calling out the buffaloes to come to this.

esepcially AJ. you know why sweetheart.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

OKAY: I didn't read any of that shit above me, because I'm not coming, but one of the most beautiful girls I've ever met in my entire 29 years is from Eau Claire, WI. And I've met two other girls from there that I could easily describe as "stunning." I don't know what they put in the water (or cheese, or whatever), but that little city is fucking hott. SRSLY.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

i wanna come but alas, i can't make it. stupid family ruining my life again. i will check with the rest of the buffalo to see who is headed that way for your rally. but i imagine they will ask three things of you adam: 1. will all members of the cream city cranks be wearing 2 piece bathing suits? 2. will team 19 be in full force? 3. will you for sure be headed out here in september? i miss you guys and am bummed your ride is over 4th of july.

I am super excited that the midwest as so much going on this summer.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

- Summerai - First Ben /

Actually I go to Stout but I'm from Green Bay, so I'm in Menomonie during the school year but Green Bay right now. You guys should throw another one during the school year. ;-D

Is there any chance someone would be nice enough to provide a loaner ped for a friend of mine because his is currently out of commission? Having to go alone is the only reason I hesitate to go.

btw, what is team 19?

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

let me respond to all three:

zach, i don't doubt it. the midwest is an amazing, magical, mystical, fantasmacal place.

j rae, 1. god, i hope so. 2. noel(20), and myself(20) will be there for sure. my little brother(18) will also be there, wade(20) is a maybe, and brian(20) from the cranks will be there. we're trying damn hard to have a good T19 showing.

ben, e-mail the cranks at: creamcitycranks@gmail.com

they have the highest chance of having a possibility of a loaner, and the means to get it to eau claire.

team 19: clicky wiki

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

I will try to make it. Car pool anyone? btw just got a biturbo on the kreidler so once I figure out the flooding problem it's gonna be awesome!

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

yeah zach, eau claire has some hotties. I thought it was like that everywhere until i moved to milwaukee.

this is really awesome, hopefully we have a pretty good turnout. I cant really come up with any loaners besides one, because moped central for me is the shop in milwaukee. I will probably be working on a lot of bikes that weekend, because a lot of people will be showing up with marginally running bikes. Tell your friend to get his shit together.

If salty comes from the appleton area, i'm sure you could hitch a ride with him. Otherwise hold out for the Cranks mini-rally in milwaukee this summer. Email me and get on the list so we can let you know when shit goes down.

it looks like we're going to have some really awesome spots to party, some cool rides (the area is amazingly nice for riding) and we can raid our parent's fridges and feed everyone. there will probably be a keg of good beer purchased as well.

Thanks adam, I will do that. Looks like I'd be rollin with team 19 then.. even though I'm 20. :-)

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

oh yeah, there is NOTHING on a moped that could possibly take more than a weekend to fix. i wont be busting my ass to get loaners together for people who are too lazy to fix their own shit, reserved strictly for people coming long distances or people with cars full of junk.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

"yeah zach, eau claire has some hotties. I thought it was like that everywhere until i moved to milwaukee. "

ha!

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

people were mad here in 2004 when we lost 'fattest city in america' to dallas or some bullshit.

ugly people drinking beer and eating custard.. .thats the scene.

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

yeah that reminds me of when i had a german exchange student and we went around the room asking her questions. when asked what her biggest misconception about the U.S. was, she answered that the media over there makes it seem like everybody in america is fat but that she actually saw more fat people in germany. (granted she was NOT in indiana..) it must be all that german ancestry making mke fat....

Re: Eau Claire, WI Mini Rally/Ride

german ancestry

excuse number 342 for why the cranks are so f'n slow.
