Funny thing I saw

So I saw about 10 scooters riding together on Butterfield the other day. They were the little CC kind. Kinda made me laugh. I tried to get a pic, but my camera phone wouldn't turn on in time. Anyone know these guys do group rides?

Which day was that?

I know there was a scooter rally in the city over Labor Day weekend and they had a long ride planned for one of the days. Some pics from the event were posted over at 2strokebuzz.com/index.php?p=4284. (Can't URLify the link since I'm a Newb.)

Yes, I'm a scooterist, lurking on the sportbike forum. No, I wasn't there.

My ride of choice? Aprilia (Scarabeo 500i.e.)

so are the scooter guys eliteest too?

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

Isn't that part of the definition of any group? (motorcycling or not)

Why is that funny, a group of people enjoying two wheels. Makes sense to me. My scooter in the city is 10x's more fun than the bike.
