Motorscooter club for residents of Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding.

I was visiting your fair city and thought that the powhite pkwy was one of the funniest names I've ever seen. Good luck with your club.

"Yeah, Thursday evening plans to be pretty burly, folks. Nonetheless, unless there's some sort of horrendous T-storm, I'm planning to do some sort of ride. I should be down at Scomo by 7:30 or so. I'm thinking about crossing back to the northside of the river, taking Rte. 5 out to Laburnum, up Laburnum to Williamsburg, and then back to Accapella's on W. Burg and then to Gov'tment Road to Broad. Total ride: 20-30 minutes. Be sure yer bike's not running too lean-don't want anyone to seize.

Looking forward to riding tomorrow."-saftey pete


i wanna see at least one modern vespa out with us soon(besides myself).

The secret labs of the Mad Toto SC have discovered that the solution to riding in high temperatures and humidity is baby powder.

I'm the new rider
Howdy All,

My login should clarify my name. I was the oversized fella on the red GTS last Thursday.

Thanks for taking me along for your ride and I might be there tonight.

I head back to Pittsburgh a lot of weekends and I have a 24-hour mountain bike race next weekend (Labor Day). Don't worry, I'm not riding, just helping a buddy that rides solo (he's a nut).

I wish that I knew about the ride on Sunday, I pretty much sat at home pounding sand.

When we did our first St. Louis ride, they started a joke that they should really be called the Sweaty Crotch Scooter Club. Apparently, a little powder is helpful. This helpful tip was submitted by one of the new dads in the club who actually stopped for a moment during a diaper change to figure out why he was using baby powder.

thanks for the tip.

this week between the storms flash flood warnings and my moving many people will be absent ...

...unless someone has a quick and easy submarine mod they can share.

so unless you are all about riding in the rain and possibly hanging out by yourself or trying to track down the few that may have gone bowling? consider this meeting rained out.

if the weather breaks maybe there will be a good ride planned for sunday.

I won't be at the sunday ride this week, I am almost sure there will be one after the last few days.

If anyone needs to keep informed check out the yahoo groups and/or the powhite trash forums(if you search on the yahoogroup page for the link you will find one that works)

And a word of advice: if you can avoid moving in a hurricane with only one other person to help, do it!
