Guy Fieri featured the Dari-ette Drive In - in St Paul Minnesota
on one of his TV Shows.

I met up with the Hecky's Angels Scooter Riding group on a
chilled Sunday morning. We kicked off the ride on the Mississippi
River Blvd across from the old Ford Plant. We cruised East
through St Paul on Summit Avenue (old mansions) then looped
around various parkways and circled back to the Drive In.

The Dari-ette is in the old Italian East side and features Italian
food on their menu. Unique for a USA Drive In.

Photos attached. This may be the last ride report from
Minnesota - getting cold.

In today's divided election year atmosphere I really appreciate the diversity of your group and rides.

Although you also just made me feel a couple thousand miles from Italian food!

Real Combination of Scooters
tdrake,

The Hecky's Angels Riding Group in Minneapolis/St Paul really
draws in a whole spectrum of scooters. They do a good job of
advance announcing the speed requirements of each ride.
This ride was "City Designated" so it brought out any and all.
On the ride:

3 Vespas (300, 150cc)
2 Stellas (150cc)
2 Honda Metropolitans (50cc)
1 Piaggo MP3 (400cc)
1 Kymco People (200cc)
1 Suzuki Burgman (650cc)
1 Yamaha Zuma (125cc)

If asked, I sure there was a measure of both Hillary and Trump
supporters in the pack. It is the love of scooters that "Brings Us
Together" and "Makes Us Great Again". Hee Hee.
