Our weather has been great, let's get out and enjoy it!
Meet @ Peet's coffee on Folsom blvd & Alhambra 10:30a.m. Leave at 10:45ish.

THIS IS NOT A CLUB OR GROUP AFFILIATED RIDE OF ANY KIND!!!
Just a fellow scooterist wonderin if anyone wants to get together and enjoy a ride.

The course:
Folsom blvd to Jackson hwy. East to Excelsior turn right and head south to grant line rd. End up at Fat Mike's pizza (8970 grant line rd.) for lunch, enjoy the company of fellow scooterists and head back to Sac.

Thats it! Hope to see some people out to enjoy a few hours of riding and socializing. 8)

The route has been pre ridden to check the road conditions, we're good to go! See below for return route.

Rode the route this morning.....
Ok we're good to go!!! Look forward to seeing anyone who's coming along.

There are two ways to head back after Fat Mike's. There will be one route for those wanting a little more ride time and one for people who need to get back into town a little sooner.

We will be leaving and traveling west on Grant Line:

The short ride will turn right on Bradshaw which will take you back to Jackson Hwy, turn left and it takes you back into town the way we left.

The longer route continues down Grant Line till we hit Bruceville rd. There we turn left to Lambert. Turn right and follow that till we hit the 160. Turn right and smooth sailing along the river which will bring us back into town via Freeport blvd.

That's it! 8)

Darn. Jason, your record will remain unbroken! I can't make it on Saturday. I have an ugly chore to do. Moving stuff.

SIC, Steve and Jason (and friends) you guys are welcome to pop by after the ride. I should be home, polishing my garaged scooters! Send a PM if you think you can swing by and I'll give you directions. I'm pretty close to your starting point.

I had a blast! This was, by FAR, my longest ride on the scoot since I got it. I mapped it out on google and it was over 60 miles total for me. I'm sure everyone's done longer than that, but it's a milestone for me

LOL Steve!

It certainly was my MOST bug splats in a single ride, by far

I had a great time meeting everybody and hope for a heat wave so I won't need all 15 layers next time Razz emoticon

Hey Beamer, wouldn't that make you lighter? Then discard the 50lb lock and you'll really 'fly'! ROFL emoticon

was a hoot!
Thanks Sic for planning and leading the ride. Good job. You, Absolute and I have a lot of miles together in the last few months. The 3 of us break the mold on a lot of stereo-types....what a hoot! You're still a Bastardly dude 'far as I'm concerned.
