I relocated to Georgia recently, and finally got my Vespa road worthy again; however, to my surprise I was told that there isn't much of a vintage scooter population in the area.

Well, I am not buying that!

If you are withing 20 miles (or so) of the airport in any direction, and are interested in camaraderie, group rides, and a possible summer rally, please reply to the post.

I did this at the Jersey shore where I was told their weren't any either, and after about 10 years, we had monthly rides of upwards to 20 Vespa's & Lambretta's, and a group of over 100 enthusiasts.

Hope to hear from lots of Vespista's

Thanks Mattgyver

I followed the link to their site, and unfortunately, it appears that there haven't been any updates or rallies since 2015. It's also quite a distance from where I am attempting to establish something, but if they do have a rally, I will be sure to attend. I think it would be 2 1/2 - 3 hour ride from Peachtree City.

There is a group, G.A.S.S. Greater Atlanta Scooter Society, (I think they'er on facebook) that meets in the northern suburbs of Atlanta.
The last series of rallys in the metro area went for about 8 years and was know as the Resurgents Rally. I think the last was Resurgence 8 in 2016. It seemed to be centered around the East Atlanta Village area. I was able to attend a couple of them but have no idea who the organizers were. Contact Robert at Vespa Mareitta, or even Dave at Scooter Mercato maybe able hook you up with some locals. I'd be game if I were closer to town but I'm halfway between Atlanta and Chattanooga so it's quite a haul anywhere for me; I've plenty of country roads to explore though.

Chattanooga and Savannah are great towns to explore by scoot. Throw
a P in a truck or on a versihaul and spend a weekend exploring.

Nice! I've been here a year but haven't hooked up with anyone yet. My new job id's ridiculously busy. But I'm around

Welcome to Atlanta xantufrog.

Having another p200 in the area is always nice to know.
