Have a great ride, guys!

Keep your heads up. Biblical rains lately, so mudslides for sure. And don't miss out on some of the most Vespa dream-perfect countryside in the US.

My favorite is a choco/strabo shake. But only if the strawberry is at the bottom and the chocolate is on the top. The reason being is that i start out with sticky sweet taste of strawberries, then it gets mellowed out by the chocolate towards the end. Of course the flavors have to be flipped if you don't use a straw.

I made it out to ROM for the Saturday ride.

Decent weather and lots of beautiful scooters.
Sorry for the crappy video. This was my first time using a GoPro.

I met Mike and was hoping to meet the rest of the NSM gang after the ride but I didn't see them at the BBQ.

Nothing says, "Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck" like hard seizing at 70+ MPH.

There's a great story that followed, too, but that'll be a tale for another post.
