Seems like ancient history now in 2009, but I rode coast to coast and back for a charity in 2006 on a new GTS250. I forgot the mileage, but the blog says 8246 over 20 days. It was partly solo, partly in a group of four, and partly on the Cannonball. I left the blog raw and unedited, though the writing was uneven due to exhaustion and internet issues. Here is a link:

It's nice to see how MV has grown up over just a couple of years. (Not how grown-up we act, because that's debatable). At the time few had ridden long distances in the US on a modern Vespa. I chimed in a lot responding to technical questions. Now long rides have become routine, so I try to keep my mouth shut and watch others share their wisdom. Usually they say it better than I could have.

Since then: so many more beautiful miles ridden, so many more incredible scooterists met. Thanks everyone, you know who you are.

Thanks for posting the link to your blog, some very "hmmm" signs in there!! I have just done the one long ride of about 250 miles down to Amerivespa, can't imagine the fun you had on a coast to coast ride... wow.
