I will have a ride-in at my place this April 16th.

I have several acres about half way between Lexington and Salisbury, NC just off interstate 85 and there is plenty of space. I'm not looking to sponser a rally...just a get togather to talk scooters and such. We can talk scoots, then go eat at local resturants.

Would like to get Honda and other brands of scoots as well. If anyone wants to do an overnighter theres plenty of motels in Salisbury, a few in Lexington. Don't know about camp grounds. Can pitch a tent at my place, no amenities other than cold water, and plenty of woods...shovel avail!!

Details and location posted below.

Ted, sounds like a good idea. I will try to make it. When it gets closer, I will tell some of the scooter riders in the east TN area.

I will be taking the scoot to visit a friend opening a tattoo parlor in Savanah GA this Spring. How far are you form there? Would be nice to meet up with some other members along the way.

Chuck,

Ted's place is roughly about 300 miles to Savannah, GA. But not nearly that far out of your way on your route down ... assuming you'll take I95. Just take I85 from Richmond, VA instead.

Thanks Bill! This might work out just fine. Perhaps I can get another local Burgy owner to tour with me (you listening Roger?). It would be great to meet up with a bunch O forum members!

In case you want to look it up on Mapquest or somesuch, I live on 251 Jubilee Rd, Linwood*, 27299, bout half way between Lexington and Salisbury. Its 4 miles off Interstate 85 on rt. 150. Or 30 miles from Winston Salem on rt. 150 or rt 52. 9 miles from where rt 64 crosses 150.

*Linwood is the mailing address and where the PO is located, and not the name of the place I live, which is Churchland. Doubt you can find it on a map.

I live in Raleigh and it sounds good to me. In the summer maybe we could get another group ride on the parkway.

Steve, if you come all the way from Illinois you get all the free hotdogs you can eat, choice of camping spots, and use of an indoor pottie and shower.........if you'll let me take her Majesty for a ride. I'll even include indoor parking for the Queen.

Gadawg, your are more than welcome.....if you'll let me take the Majesty for a short ride. And even if you won't! :lol: I hope other brands of scooter riders will get the word. When I set a date, I plan on visiting some of the other dealers around and leaving flyers.

Another possibility is that we meet at my place, have some cold sodas, coffee, snacks; BS awhile, then ride to some restuarant for lunch. That might not be too enticing for longer distance riders, but thats for each person to decide. Also, its the sort of thing for which I could easily have a raindate. A meet like this can be done on a moments notice. Does this appeal to any of you? If so, I'll set a date...prob mid Arril or early

Ted, the idea of a ride-in, meet at your place with manageable logistics for you you, then a ride to a local eatery sounds pretty good to me. Part of being a good guest is to not make the host work any harder than necessary. I'l like to make it from Charleston, SC, schedule permitting.

OK...done deal: April 16, my place anytime from daylight on. Early arrivals get coffee; late comers, get soda. Lunch at your choice of local resturants...they have good pork BBQ, plus the usual other places in Salisbury.

Raindate April 17.

Anybody want to camp out friday or saturday...let me know. I have plenty of space....several acres worth.

In case you want to look it up on Mapquest or somesuch, I live on 251 Jubilee Rd, Linwood*, 27299, bout half way between Lexington and Salisbury. Its 4 miles off Interstate 85 on rt. 150. Or 30 miles from Winston Salem on rt. 150 or rt 52. And its 9 miles from where rt 64 crosses 150.
