LA Scooter Service is proudly sponsoring the one and only ericalm in his bid on this years cannonball run.
GO #98 GO

i've been servicing eric's ride since the dealership days and consider myself lucky to have ridden with him and honored to be his friend and mechanical consultant.

while it's not a vespa, i think the rolling barcalounger is an acceptable replacement-- given the task at hand.

ride swiftly, ride safely my friend. godspeed & good luck!

best,
-greasy

ps: custom grafix by yours truly

Greasy, have you thought of opening a second business with a focus on custom graphics??

On second thought, maybe stick with your day job.

;^)

Very cool that you are on Team EA.

THANK YOU, GREASY!

The mighty Helix, the Beast, was delivered to Wrightwood this morning. Later this week, teacherquinn (and Kevin, too!) will be taking it up to the Bay, where maroy and others will load in onto the trailer bound for Canada, then Alaska.

We haven't even started yet and I'm already deeply indebted to the many friends who have helped me get this far. The planning and organization involved in just prepping for this has been all-consuming for months now. (My poor wife!)

I'm not telling you anything you don't already know but your ass is going to be much happier than all the other peeps out there. I could ride my Helix for days. Very comfortable. Their so ugly their cute and they they just run. No fussiness about them. Have fun and be careful. Lianna leaves today to start up there also. It's time. Woot.

Even though I've ridden 500 mile days on the Sports City and done multi day trips the airhawk is going to Hyder with me.

my plan is to spend less time riding than anyone else, so no need for the comfort. ROFL emoticon

I suspect that Lee will have the least comfortable scoot in the cannoball. I'm taking the airhawk because I see no benefit in not being comfortable. I figure no matter what speed I manage it will be at least 5+ on the scoot each day but I do expect not to exceed Googles "time" for each day's route even though I'm not using a touring tank.
