Leigh and I are thrilled that you're helping her out this weekend. I know she wants to start imagining herself riding. Would you be willing to share, cc's, color, kind...she is so excited to look it up but too shy to ask you. Grin...so I did.
Hi Teri, Thanks for the Friend Invite! It was nice to meet you and Melody last week! And thank you for all the information you two shared. I am looking very forward to meeting everyone in the club and taking some rides that will fit our scooters. We are looking to upgrade already! See you soon!
Thanks for the info. I found Sargent's Motor Sports through another scooter club member. Gary also has a Diamo Turista and he pointed me to them . Come to find out my scooter came from Sargent's. Got the full service done and new tires too. I'm ready to ride. Just waitin for the rain to quit! See you at the breakfast social this Sunday. Samantha
Enjoyed riding with you again. Hope you, Abby and Melody had fun after the parade. Would love to have stayed but we had to make sure we were back in time to let the dog out. Hope to see you on future rides
I'm sorry, but I won't be seeing you on the ride Saturday. I have opted for the Central Oregon camping (so I can have some practice for the August ride). But I will send the t-shirts with Abby, and she can get them to you.
Bob is getting more and more comfortable with his scooter. He has been adding new gadgets, such as a throttle control and a new light bar on the back. He is going in for his 1st service on Saturday, or he would be on the ride.
Are you going on the 4th of July ride? If you are, I will see you there.
