Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

Seeing if there is interest in a short run rally Sunday July 27th 1:00PM. Beginning at British & Dominion Club parking lot in Garden Grove (right next to 22 FWY at Valley View on north side) ending at Queen Mary. There are some fantastic traffic light free, open, straight and flat sections on this run...especially Westminster Ave with a 50 mph limit nearly 3 miles no lights.

Mopeds only please. This is a Knucklehead event so hope we represent. Would welcome the Latebirds if your moms let you skip church that day.

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

If I take the Garelli it will def be a rally and not a ride.

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

a rally is a weekend long event. A ride is where people meet up, go on a ride, and go home.

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

Looking forward to all who can make it to the Knucklheads Ride...apologies for 'ped terminology misuse.

A moped rally is a large event, generally sponsored by a branch. Branches who sponsor rallies often do so annually.

Events at specific rallies vary greatly. Common events and activities include organized rides around a branch's city, moped races, barbecues, parties, and bar invasions. Moped Army branches often have merchandise such as T-shirts and stickers available for sale.

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

I'd like to make the ride but I'm only doing rallies right now.

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

Hahah. Yeah Thats friggin RIGHT! Rides? What are Rides? They're worthless. You CANT ride a moped unless its a Rally.Wow Tommy. Why so rigid?hummm?. Everyone knew what Shanbo was saying.

We really must try and fit this into the day somehow...a motorcycle swapmeet...and at least one photo of a ded ped

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

Oh Shannon, what have you gone and started? I say we end up at Alex's. Free BBQ and drink specials and bands. Don't forget the mini traffic circle for a lap race and dirt trails for some off road. If Daniel isnt scared. Jimmy will be out of town but the rest of us should be there.

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

Alex's seems inevitable...the NASCAR style race around the LB traffic circle (or roundabout as it's supposed to be called haha) goes without saying.

Anyway imma hit the motorcycle swapmeet around 9 ish. I hope we can ped park safely. Anyone who wants to join me for s stroll pre-ride lemme know beforehand.

Oh and go to my profile...I have a pic of the Trac I just bought up.

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

Has anybody tried taking a moped up or down Hill Street in Signal Hill? I've been to the top, but never by by that route. Super steep. It think like about an 11% grade in spots.

Re: Short Long Beach Knuckleheads Rally

No WAY Shannon!!! That TRAC is Badass! TOPTANK! WHOA!

Where did u find it at? Most Importantly Does it RUN?
