Once again NoHo Scooters is having our annual ride up to Santa Barbara for the Endless Summer Rally. We will be leaving the shop at 11 AM on Friday September 21st. We will stop for lunch at Casa De Soria in Ventura around 1 or 2 PM before riding the coast up to Santa Barbara. After the Sunday ride we will regroup and ride back.

The ride is mostly on back roads and we avoid freeways. There is one stretch of 101 that we have to ride for a mile or two. Its considered divided highway at this point so smaller bikes are legal. You should have at least a fast 125 for the ride (Buddy 125, Vespa T5, Agility 125).

If you have not done so, you need to make hotel reservations since that area books up early.

Note that NoHo Scooters will be closed on Friday September 21st and Saturday September 22.

Excellent ride. If the parts come in for the small frame, I might consider breaking her in on that ride. If not, it's the ET4 again.

Hi, Mike, I will be riding down to ES from Portland and Napa, but I look forward to riding back to NoHo with you again after the rally.

Yes, to some; but it also means idiot in Spanish, and chic in French.

For me its just the first half of my Polish last name.

Count me in....
I am going to have my wife Marlene drive up in a vehicle and I am going to scooter with the group - so let me know where to meet up - we booked two nights at some nice bed and breakfast:

http://www.jameshousesantabarbara.com

The rooms at the Motel 6 were all taken..... In fact, most of the hotels are sold out that weekend, but there are still rooms here and there if you look hard enough....

I am so psyched!

Anyone else riding up w/ the group on a People 250?

We're riding up but not until later in the day on Friday. Leaving the Valencia area around 4 and heading up 126. We'll be coming back via Ojai Monday morning. Anyone want to join us?

This is scary, I am gonna have to ride really carefully!

By the way, the rally schedule has finally been posted. It came as a surprise that no particular Saturday evening activity is planned, but some of the Saturday night fun from years past would be hard to top.

As expected there will be a "vintage only" scooter ride on Saturday afternoon, so we'll need to plan our own modern ride. I'll start a new thread for that ride.

There are going to be TWO rides on saturday, so all you MV people don't have to come up with your own. Bobby has always been open to vintage and modern scooterists.

This is great news! I only posted because as of last night the ES rally sked on the Vesparados site showed the vintage-only ride but no others.

Just so everybody knows: the weather forecast calls for really severe, really weird storm action on Friday for Santa Barbara/Ventura.

CURRENTLY MOST OF THE COMPUTER MODELS SHOW FRIDAY TO BE THE MOST ACTIVE DAY...ESPECIALLY FROM SOUTHERN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY TO LOS ANGELES COUNTY AS THE STORM SLOWLY WORKS ITS WAY EASTWARD ACROSS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. ON FRIDAY...SHOWERS ARE LIKELY IN ALL AREAS... AND THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS. ANY THUNDERSTORM WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING SMALL HAIL AND VERY HEAVY RAINS...AND WATERSPOUTS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS. THE BULK OF THE STORM WILL AFFECT LOS ANGELES COUNTY FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND FRIDAY NIGHT.

THERE IS A CHANCE OF HEAVY RAIN FROM THIS STORM...ESPECIALLY ON THE SOUTH SLOPES OF THE SANTA YNEZ RANGE IN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY...THE COASTAL SLOPES OF THE MOUNTAINS IN WESTERN VENTURA COUNTY...AND PORTIONS OF THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY MOUNTAINS. ANY THUNDERSTORM WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING SMALL HAIL AND HEAVY RAIN. HEAVY RAINS MAY CAUSE MUD AND DEBRIS FLOWS IN AND BELOW RECENT BURN AREAS... AND RESIDENTS IN THESE AREAS SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR THIS POSSIBILITY DESPITE THE FACT THAT IT IS ONLY SEPTEMBER.

--from Weather.com Special Warnings

Dunno...I might be over it? Too dangerous/crappy? Thoughts?
