Oh no argument. I've been to scooter rallys, there were some really crazy ones we missed like camping ones, but the big ones like resurgens in atlanta they were fun but a pretty different scene than a moped rally - people staying in hotels and organized rides and general law abiding...
They used to do a gymkhana, i was kicking ass on it on my cub and then i ate shit on the seesaw and a buncha empties spilled outta my baskets. That got me a good rep with the scooter crowd, they all thought it was hillarious.
Bobby, OG swoops, used to be a mechanic for the atlanta scooter shop, they closed and our friends re-opened it with Bobby and Brooks as mechanics. I hung out there a lot and got along real well with the vespa fellas. It was walking distance from my work so I'd pop in on lunches and shoot shit.
I had a early 80s PX for a bit I got when they finally did close, after a good 5 or 6 year run. was fun as hell, traded it for an MB5 and a few gallons of moonshine. woof
I met up with some of the scooter folks here in cleveland too, real similar crowd. Not bad, just not as dumb and dirty and stupid. anyway, I enjoy the scooter scene and people, but my scooters for the most part just dont inspire much excitement - It's too plain and easy
