Not a big event, just two veterans of touring the Big Bend area (in West Texas along the Rio Grande) who think a few others might like to join us. We will be arriving by 3 pm Friday, October 20th at the Big Bend Resort and Adventures in Terlingua ($110 per night) and will spend the next few days in the National Park, along the river road to Presidio and north to Fort Davis and Marfa. We know every inch of the place and will offer route suggestions for anyone who is not interested in riding with the group or is on a smaller scooter. Scooters should be 200cc or more for the group but any make or type of 2 or 3 wheeler is welcome. Message me for more details. Tom

We have now officially gone from two guys headed to the Texas Big Bend country to four guys. All on scooters! Now that we have a big event planned, we are sure that more riders will want to join us. Message me for planning details. You know you want to come!

Well the ride has come and gone without mishap. Perfect weather, vast and beautiful landscape, good riding companions. Everyone rode from home to the event racking up between 900 and 1600 miles. We’ll do it all again next October. Let me know if you would like to join us in 2018.

I'm in Austin. A central Texas ride with other MVers sounds great

We’ll be there in April from the afternoon of the 19th through the afternoon of the 22nd. All scooters but not all Vespas. You’ll need 200ccs or more keep pace with the group. Message me for details. That time of year, hotels fill up fast. Great, easy going group of riders.
