2015 Monumental USCA Rally

Just ran into this https://sites.google.com/site/gpskevin/gpskevin-ride-calendar/scooters-across-america They will be in Sturgis on Saturday June 26. This could be interesting. They seem to be limited to 50 scooters. We are not the only motor group in town. If you are a moteler it might be wise to get you reservation early. Harold

I looked at the site and it looks like the are advertizing for someone with a scooter and sidecar to do the trip. COOL!!

Hi: Just had someone ask me where/how to sign up to attend the National. Is that info available? Thanks... g

Hi gpers:
The registration will start when the next Sidecarist comes out. (I am glad to know that the question is coming up.) There will be a registration form in the magazine and 2 forms on line - an internet version and a .pdf that you can make a hard copy of and mail to me.

Cool! - thanks - g

Thanks for the reminder about booking lodging in advance, Harold. I had done some online motel shopping last month but hadn't pulled the trigger on one yet.

This could be interesting!! What do cross-country scooters look like? They plan to do lunch in Keystone on the same day that we are planning a photo-op at Rushmore. Keystone is 2 miles down a 10-11 % grade from Rushmore. If they plan to view Rushmore it would be fun to watch the little scooters go up that grade.

Can we come, if we don't have a sidecar yet?

Murphy would love the trip.

Cranky.

The scooter rally will be a great group to meet, they are fun loving bunch of rider from all over the US, with a major case of Iron Butt. They will be riding scooters 50cc up to the Maxi 650cc, with a class for early vintage motorcycles under 500cc. While not a race, some 50cc riders will be pushing up some mountains while the fuel injected 650cc guys will be flying, some of the MAXI scooters easily run over 100 mph. Can't imagine riding a 50cc scooter across America max speed 35 mph, now that's one tough biker :-0

They are hoping to get a some one to run a scooter with a sidecar.

Yes they drink beer!

Cheers,

Marty

I ran into a Vespa rally in Moab one year, interesting group of people. One of them was running a YZ250 engine in his vintage Vespa and said he could do better than 80 mph on the highway with it.
