FEBRUARY 28, 08 SCOOTERS AND KING OF CUSTOMS
I can see from all of the attention that this site is getting that we are getting the bug to get out and ride. Today the temperature is 11 c and there are some riders out enjoying the warmth and doing what we like to do. RIDING. We hope to start the bike nights ASAP weather permitting. I know there is going to be a plethora of new and old / new bikes waiting to visit bike night and we hope to see you and your ride there as well. The World of Wheels was last weekend and I managed to talk briefly to the Apocalypse scooter club at the show. I extended our welcome to them and asked them to check out bike night soon. I added the King of Customs bike show to the links for you to check out and take away some of those blues. It is coming here May 17-19, 08 along with Jesse James and a host of builders. A show and shine will be part of it so get your bikes ready for this one. Ride safe Bobby Baum CVMG – RMS.Kory Haggert has given us some more info on the Scooter Club Thanks for the interest and promotion.The Apocalypse Scooter Club was conceived in 2005 out an collective effort to participate in scooter rallies in Victoria and Vancouver. The ASC currently arranges group weekends to scooter rallies held throughout the year in Western Canada and USA. We have access to two trailers, one of which has transported as many as 12 scooters.In 2006 we organized the first scooter rally to be held in Calgary and had approximately 60 scooters participate. Our 3rd annual rally will be held Aug 1-4 2008. Info and details to follow, available athttp://apocalypsesc.com/Tuesdays we have an group ride open to members and non-members alike. We meet at 7-7-30 at Beano’s Cafe (1613-9Street SW) and ride around 8pm. Meet-ups average 5-6 riders but has been as many as 20. The length of the ride depends on the weather and enthusiasm. Our route is always mindful that some scooters cannot exceed 60km/hr, so we will wind and circle our way through downtown and residential streets toward a predetermined destination, usually a pub.Membership with the Apocalypse Scooter Club is $15.Members meet every Sunday for breakfast. In good weather we have a group ride after breakfast but if it’s really cold, snow or rainy we just drive and meet for breakfast anyway. The breakfast location/time changes weekly and is announced the week before at the breakfast and through an e-mail mail-out to members. Sometimes we’ll ride out to Bowness Park, sometimes to BlackDiamond, and sometimes we just ride around downtown. Again, thank you for your interest.
