I'd love to join you all ( especially those who I rode with in 2012) but I'm thinking that last year was a one off deal so I'll just have to look forward to following your progress and pressing your flesh in NOLA.

Come on Bill you would be able to 7 states to your map plus two Canadian Provinces. Canada is almost like a whole other country.

I know as I've been to Newfoundland and I'll be back there in 2 weeks.

Would love to but it took me a year and a half to get the last one together so this time I'm just going to watch.

You know I like to watch.

I think that is highly classified and if he told you he would have to kill you.

You can say that again Sticky. But this time around I am not waiting for the last minute. I need to do some research. I WILL find out sooner or later.

I just sent in my registration with a request for a way to pay using PayPal.

Should have it all sorted by the end of the weekend.

The mountain scenery for first three days looks amazing.

I rode on some of the roads in Montana and Wyoming this year and am quite excited about seeing those again along with the thousand or so miles of new (to me) roads.

Current registered riders list is up at http://www.scootercannonball.com/riders/index.php once again Vespa and its siblings in the Piaggio/Aprilia lines are in the majority with half of the registered scoots so far being in that group.

6 last century Vespas 1958-1980
8 2006-2009 Vespa GT/GTS
2 Sports City,
1 MP3 250
1 BV 250

4 Honda Helix
2 Big Ruckus
1 Honda PCX
1 Honda Reflex

3 SYM HD 200

1 each : Buddy 125, Stella 150 (2 stroke version), Lambretta, Yamaha C3 (50cc) and Cushman (non-original motor another Frankenscoot?)

Not the range of scooters as in 2012 since nothing over 250cc is allowed but quite a spread from the 1939 Cushman with the 1985 motor to 1958 Lambretta S1 without a newer motor to through 2009 more or less stock scooters. My hat is off to those riding vintage and/or low cc scooters. It takes more than I've got to do Hyder, AK to NOLA on a 50cc rolling beer cooler. It has been a hard decision for me to throw my hat in the ring with a 2008 Sports City 250.

Time and Money are my biggest hurdles. Another year on the sidelines living vicariously... Crying or Very sad emoticon

My wrenching skills are also woefully under-developed for such an undertaking at this time.
