God flarking damnits! You guys had to go and throw a party AFTER I've left the state! Two years I spent seeing nothing happen in western NY, and not three months after I head off to chicago, you throw a freaking rally! Flarg and blarg! Best wishes sent your way though, all who attend, should be a blast. I wish I could be there with my korado powered Maxi though!!!

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

post pictures of your bikes to bump the thread.

THE HORDE

horde [hawrd, hohrd]

noun, verb, hord

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

Cool,

i never thought i would see a rally in upstate. I think I might come down to ithaca for the day. I will be riding my Hobbit from syracuse. Anyone else want to ride down to ithaca with me? Im guessing a 3 hour ride. any additional details on the event would be appreciated

thanks!

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

Yeah Jon!

You've got to make those shirts.

I want one if I can make it all the way out there.

:)

I still think that the Mopeds are Gorges one would be better. but It'll have to do.

:)

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

^hahahaha i agree

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

oh also... while were up there...

^^my roommate doing one of the cliffs in ithica

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

Emperor Swagustus /

T-shirt time!

I can also have some made in Alfred, there is a place that will make them for probably 12-15 dollars each. Lee is looking at an online thing that could be cheaper.

Jon, is it possible to get a white mosquito silhouette on the logo? I also think that "Mopeds are Gorges" is pretty sweet. Maybe one on the front, the other on the back? That would rock socks.

Getting pix up tonight hopefully to bump thread

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

Thanks for the post about the Velosolex Route 66 ride for charity. I was looking at the http://www.velosolexamerica.com web site and all the details of this event. My uncle lives real close to the ride and has 2 Velosolex 4800 bikes. I sent him an e-mail with the link and they are going to join in for a bit of the ride. I think that anyone along the 2,266 mile ride with any type of moped should join in with this group of 20 riders from Holland. It says that there are various parties along the way and they are being followed by a television news crew. Every one on Moped Army should band together and really show them what a swarm of mopeds sounds like. I want to see 100+ mopeds on the news. Thank you Big Ass Motors for you post and I will spread the word on this great ride from Chicago to Santa Monica on the Pacific Coast, 2666 miles on their new Velosolex 4800 and it says the Velosolex S4800 can get 160 to 200mpg. That&#8217;s only 14 gallons of gas. My SUV would use 222 gallons. At least I have air conditioning.

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

Finally a run in New york and it's the same weekend as the Antique car show in Hershey,Pa. I have been looking for someone in the Syracuse area to ride with. Hopefully this will bring some Mopeds out of hiding.

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

~SABAT!

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

Hey, Sabat

Camping/HQ will be at IthacaScooter, http://www.ithacascooter.com/

The owner, Anthony, has been gracious enough to let us camp, beer, and bonfire in the yard behind his house/shop.

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

anyone riding down from syracuse?

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

"Mopeds are Gorges" is also a good idea. I feel like the spacing of all the text and the need to make a "fall stylized" was a little more work than I wanted. I'll see about adding a mosquito. I'm still looking for a good profile of one that would work.

I tried to keep it as true to the original as possible...

http://www.t-shirtexpressions.com/ithacagorges/tshirts/large/05.jpg

The shop in town here that prints most of the "ithaca is gorges" shirts also does custom work, i'll see about getting an estimate if enough people are interested. The shop already prints shirts that also say "ithaca is cold," "ithaca is garages," and "ithaca is gangsta"

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

oops. bad code. here's the original:

Re: !!!!Swarm Ithaca NY October 11th!!!

Jon judging from this picture <img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3223/2820960147_064fd7ef93.jpg?v=0">;

I'd say you don't remember our conversation about this at the massacre.

But maybe I've got the wrong guy.

I'm just thrilled that it's actually happening!
