Hello folks,

Im Anthony from Bend, OR.
wouldnt exactly say im a refugee from BBS but would definately like a more low intensity atmosphere...some of the BBS folks take their scooting too seriously.

Hope to engage yall in some good discussion

Yo Yo - Tony the Tiger is Here!
Yo Anthony,

Welcome to Modern Vespa! I'm the jrsjr who used to be on the BBS, now much happier here, I'm glad to say. Hope you will be, too. And I'm glad to see that cooler heads are prevailing, that others aren't following my poor example of thumbing their nose at the BBS on the way out. I'm so embarrassed...

Did I see on another thread that you have snow in Bend? Yikes, snow is not good for happy scootering. I keep worrying about the Cannonball running into snow somewhere in mid-to-late September. That would certainly bring our little adventure to a grinding halt! When's the earliest you've ever seen snow?

Again, welcome to Modern Vespa. We're glad you're here!

That is actually the only thing I'm afraid off while scooting. Snow and Ice, I don't mind driving in the rain, dark or wind, but snow freaks me out!

yo yo!
Hey all,

OZ: yup still no parts, i called them today and asked them to find out if it was even shipped out. I hate having to rely on dealers. After the warranty is up im learning to do EVERYTHING by myself. Right now im just doing all the maintinence stuff.

MATT: dood...my memory might be lapsing...but what is this fire blanket? haha

~Anthony

PS...any oregon riders on here?

I was drinking a bit at the Portland rally but I distinctively remember you telling me a story about a silver foil blanked you had to take with you to wild fire photo shoots

IF things got out of control your employer told you to climb under the foil blanket & wait to cook ...... no no no ......your employer told you the fire should just pass right over you
