The information below was posted on the Napa Valley Scooter Club forum in this thread. Come out and join us for some twisties in the back hills of Napa. This will not be a Group A sort of ride, more like a Group B-C. But we're still gonna have a good time. Andiamo scooter group is an Eastern Sacramento group.


From NVSC.net:

Andiamo scooter group will have 6 to 10 people on March 18 come join us for a ride.

Meet at Browns Valley Market
3263 Browns Valley Rd
Napa, CA 94558

Meetup at March 18 2007 10am Ride leaves at 11am SHARP

This will be a 125cc plus ride.

It is terminology that people use to describe a group's speed. Group A means a fast pace with experienced agressive riders. Group B means good riders at a brisk pace. Group C means riding at a relaxed pace.

Usually sportbikers will divide into groups so that less experienced riders won't feel compelled to try to keep up with faster riders, sometimes resulting in accidents.

You gonna come up and ride with us Cricket?

I was thinking about meeting TomJ and or Chris666 on their way over if they decided to ride the back way. A good meeting point is the parking pullout at the dam at Berryessa. From there I could lead all of the out-of-towners in to the meeting place.

Piggy Back Ride
I will be leaving Sacramento with my Trailor at 9:00 a.m.

I have room if someone dosen't want to ride all the way to Napa. I have Canyon Dancer Straps but its way nicer to have some bar ends from Jettin.

So let me know if you want a piggy back ride to Napa~

Hey Tom J. with the English Beat Scooter!!! I can pick ya up on the way if you want or just ride your butt off....

If a group does ride from Sacramento send me your route information so I can take the same route and pick up any breakdowns.

Later~

Maybe If there is enough interest I can head up a ride leaving from Sacramento. Speak up if there is some interest. I'll even ride a scooter.

You, TomJ, Sonia, and LuckyBastard sounds like enough to me. Like I said in the NVSC thread, I'd be glad to meet you guys at the Berryessa Dam and lead you to the meeting point.

I'm going to talk to some of the Topz, see if they want to do it. I'll let you know. I was just down riding in the Berryesa-Napa area a couple of weekends ago.

Check out my ride report.

Don't let 'em tell you to go to a different DMV station like they tried to tell me. Make them do their frickin' job. Have ALL you paperwork and be firm with them without getting pissed. I got a bit pissed and it didn't help too much.

Expect a 6-8 week wait to get your bike inspected by CHP.

You may want to find some documentation that the GTS is a 50 state bike otherwise they may try to hassle you about the mileage being under 7500 with an out of state bike.

Either way meet up with us at BVM and say hello.

I *might* show up. I was trying to avoid doing anything scooter-related this weekend, just because I have a million things to do at home and not enough time to do them all. However, I'm starting to feel left out.

I'll know by Saturday night or so.

C'mon Jess, you know sunday morning it's all you'll be able to think about, so you might as well just commit to it now.

Get up early tomorrow and get those chores done so you can play! Bring your better half as well.

I'm so bummed to be missing the ride. When I lost my voice (those who've met me know what I mean) I decided to take fiddle lessons & tomorrow is the fiddle club monthly meeting. Talk about trying to juggle priorities!
