SHOW NOTES: Welcome and thanks for joining me. Subscriber numbers continue to go up. I appreciate those of you who are sticking with me. If you are new I would be interested to know how you found the show. Drop me an email. Sorry about weeks show it was too much fluff not enough specific content. I realized that I said I would talk about rallies but then just referred you to the rally calendars. Hopefully this show makes up for that. Not only is there talk about a couple of specific rallies coming up, but I have a boat load of rally video links for you. Music on this show is from the Podsafe music network. Jonny Kaplan And The Lazy Stars with Ride Free Another wonderful week in Richmond Virginia, Lots of sunshine and more time to get out in the yard and do some weekend riding, Look for the sctrcst logo to appear on the Amerivespa sponsors page of the site. The Lake Erie Loop ride is the weekend of June 8-10 2007. The ride originates in Wellington, Ohio, heads west through Detroit, Mich. and Windsor, Ont. into Canada, east through Fort Erie and Buffalo, NY, then back to Wellington, Ohio. 650 miles in a day! Great video on the ride is here. Another upcoming ride is here on the east coast is Scootergate 3, in Washington DC rally, June 1-3rd. It is sponsored by top shelf shops in the DC area like Vespa Washington and Moto Strada. Click here for pictures from last years DC rally. The Lake Erie video started me thinking about other rally videos I had seen on the net. The first SCTRCST show included one from the shop in San Antonio where I got my first Vespa. Here are some more recent rally videos with music to check out.
