The Worst Scooter Club Ever (WSCE) presents the OlympiaBad Scooter rally. Everyone was there, even Orin . . .
(Orin: Scootin Old Skool, with his Vespa GTS)
The Vancouver Scooter Rally is one of the oldest rallies in the country attended by many from as far away as Alberta and Oregon. Orin has ridden up from Bellingham which is just a short 1-1/2 hrs south of Vancouver. All Riders are welcome as was evident by the many makes and models of scooters from Vintage manual shift Vespas to modern Honda Ruckii (ie: many Ruckass's), while others came on their motorcycles.

Most of the Honda Ruckass's are heavily customized, being lowered, wheelbase extended and some with large wide rear wheels
This rider also likes to take 'rolling' video
Modern Vespas, like this GTS has a very usuable storage under the seat
Having a cooling source under your seat is a great way to keep cool in the summer .
Many owners also personalize their rides with friendly adornments
I noticed a few other tiddlers like this pristine Suzuki 250
Even then, back in the old days, Suzuki managed to include a Tachometer as standard equipment
As Vancouver was the host city for the 2010 Olympic games, it was only fitting that the Vancouver OlympiBad Scooter Rally should follow in their footsteps by having a friendly game of Scooter Hockey (which was only one of many events held during the weekend).
Joel, a member of the Ruckass club decided to use his muffler as a heat source to cook his bacon snack. After the scooter hockey it was time to check the contents of the foil wrapped package
It was a wonderful weekend to catch up with friendships, go for rides and have a few meals
And in fine Jack rIEPE tradition I asked Heidi if she would open her jacket . . . and imagine my surprise, she did
