Well, the cat's out of the bag. I can't fool anyone but the day nearly didn't happen . . .
It was an early morning Ferry ride to Victoria for the start of a long holiday weekend. It was a build up of months of anticipation and a chance to meet old friends. Dar has already posted her comprehesive recap of our day HERE *****
For years, scooterists from Seattle, Tacoma, Bellingham, Edmonton, Calgary & Vancouver converge on the tourist city of Victoria for the Capital City Scooter Rally, one of the longest running scooter rallies in the Country. I have been attending for many years having previously belonged to the Vespa Club of Canada & the Worst Scooter Club Ever. There is usually in excess of 150 scooters, predominately Vespas of all generations, some restored and some not.
We travelled over as a group from VancouverScootering.com We had 20 scooters in our contingent but there are several group rides heading in different directions but 14 of our members were excited that I had brought in my local, resident expert of local twisties for our own personalized group ride. Enter Dar on Mr Motorcycle's Cruiser and myself in the rear on my V-strom with the maxi-scoots sandwiched in the middle.
It was a great day with great people and I can honestly say that the guys from VancouverScootering.com absolutely loved her and were hoping the day would just continue . . . (<-- don't forget to click the link if you don't believe me)
I wished that we could do "Saturday" again, and again, and again . . .
