...at Smuttynose Brewery - starting at 1030... Expect Seacoast NH Scooter Club to be represented, the event had about 35 scooters last year...

I plan to ride over from Vermont to participate. Should be fun. Anyone else riding in from points North/West (e.g., Vermont, Plymouth, Tilton, Concord) that might want to connect up and ride in as a group? I will be avoiding the Interstate.

In searching around on their Facebook pages, it appears as though there are two events in one...

We are coming from southwestern NH, but taking the trailer. Apparently if you want to blend in and not ride your motorcycle, you can rent a scooter for $20 from one of the other 2 scooter shops in the area, but not the one mentioned in the Smutty Scooter Ride event.

Mckismet - that’s going to be a long day for you. Good thing we’ll have good weather!

I'm going to try to arrive around 1000-1015 or so... I'm very local, so easy trip. You folks be careful, ands say "hi' - I'll be on a blue BV 350, no doubt the only one there... I believe one can rent scoots at the beach and on Rt 1, but EZ Bikes is not a rental agency...
Personally, I doubt anyone would care if you showed up on a motorcycle, but you'd be the only one, based on last year...

Very nice Vespa Day Parade - about 55-60 scooters, lovely weather, nice folks! Great to meet Momnipotent2k and her husband, and Mckismet, who came all the way from Vermont! Hope everyone enjoyed the ride & got home safely!

A near perfect day, but for the hard rain I drove into on the return trip. Luckily it was over as fast as it started. Ended up putting 270 miles on the Sprint.
Great fun on the ride, and it was awesome to meet some MVers in person. And thanks to our hosts for the neat patch.
Cheers.

Yes, happy to put some faces to names yesterday. What a fun ride and gorgeous day - can’t wait until next year! My husband is thinking he’ll have acquired his own scooter by then. Where’s the next scooter event?

I read somewhere that Smutty is planning a fall scooter ride! Either of you hear anything about it?

I haven't heard about any other scooter events at Smuttynose this year, and there's nothing on their FB page (which they use more than their website)...
Will keep an eye open, as they say...

I'll be watching for that, and any other VT/NH event that might come about.
