I don't know which group or club it was, but it was a beautiful morning to be out riding. Looked like maybe 6 or 7 riders. Mostly Vespa, but it looked like a BV350 and another I didn't get a good look at. Was anyone from MV in the group? Haole, was that you on the red GTS? I was out on my old Harley chop and was with your group for a couple miles until I turned off to my home.

Sorry, no photos. I was busy riding. 😂

We had a meet up down in Casa Grande for brunch. Some Phoenix folks and some Tucson folks.

We Tucson fools took Indian Route 15 south to AZ86, then east to Tucson via Sells.Took the Majesty for this one. Almost rode the Spade, but the LT150 rider bailed and everyone else was riding 300cc and above.

I believe Dixie's group (Sonoran Sunriders) also had a ride. It was their 1st anniversary for the club.

Sorry Craig, not me.
I was set on going to Tucson, but family commitment changed my plan.
I WAS riding sweep last weekend (October 5) in a group of 9 vespas out to Superior for some good Mexican food.
Today, another group I'm in rode from Gilbert to Scottsdale to the Taco Festival.

I keep my eye out for ya!
Come out to "Coffee & Cars" at Kneeders (near you) next Saturday, I'll be on my vintage Vespa.

This group definitely could have been headed for Casa Grande. They were headed south on Lindsay Rd when I turned off. Not much south of my house unless you are headed toward Casa Grande.

I'll try to make it out to the Cars & Coffee. I've been there a couple times but probably not in about a year.

Just wondering...

would a group of Vespas be called "a swarm"?
