For all GR scooterists!

21 posts in this topic

The local scooter club is riding once again. We meet at Kava House every thursday at six and ride maybe an hour after that. So dust off those Vespas (or whatever scoot you have) and come out! I didn't post this in the event kiosk since its not really an event but a social group. I hope thats cool. Anyway, our website is right here.

A scooter club? Sounds cool! Took a peek at the website. Sounds fun!!

Currently live in Greenville. Plan on moving to GR sometime by fall. We will have to check it out at some point. Nice to know there is a group of riders. We look forward to it. :yahoo:

I'll have to meet up with you guys one of these days once I get my scoot running properly. How many scooters do you usually have at these things?

I would totally kill myself on one of those. Although, 15MPH for 45 minutes - that'd get me to work no problem. Charge it up during the day and be good to go on the way home. Hmm.....

You could probably get to work faster on a bicycle. What would be the advantage of that as opposed to the old fashioned pedal power?

Chicks dig the scooters. ;)

J/K obviously. I haven't owned a bike since I was a teenager. I would probably die if I attempted to bike or scooter to work. ;)

Yeah, I hear you. I don't think I would make it to work on a bicycle either even though it is only like a five minute drive for me. Most of the people I know who bike to work can go at least 20 miles an hour.

Well, yeah, but they didn't start out bicycling at 20mph. They are able to ride 20mph because they ride their bikes to work everyday. You have to work up to that. And riding fast is not a requirement for riding a bicycle.

You should try it sometime. I'd help ya. I could loan you a bicycle or find one you could use. :) It's a lot of fun, especially once you get more comfortable with it.

I would like to try it, but it would take some planning. Some days I have to pick up lumber and other materials for work, but I could try riding on days where that wasn't a requirement.

Where would one go to find a moped for sale in the GR area? I am interested in a moped not really a scooter.

The local moped army branch, the ghost riders, might have some for sale. Or vertigo music sometimes sells them.

The Ghost Riders meet at Founders at 7 on mondays. If you come down there we can try to find a bike that is for sale. Otherwise craigslist is a good place, but dont get ripped off, if you need advice, let me know.

Krylonics, I got my scooter running today and went out for a quick ride around 6:30. Saw a bunch, maybe 5, guys on scooters turing west onto Fulton from Eastern, was that your group?

I heard on Free Beer and Hotwings this morning that Brian Vander Ark and Lux Land have matching vintage Puchs. How cute. :)

My fiance and I are looking for a place in the GR area that offers scooter rentals. We're getting married this June and would love to use a scooter for our "get-away" car. Or, if anybody is willing to let us rent their scooter that would be great too. Our church and reception sites are only about 3 miles apart from each other and it's all downtown so it wouldn't be far.

The news stated pedicabs could be running as early as June 1st, but I'm not sure we will actually begin operating that early. The drivers still have to go through some training first. I'll be giving Mr. McCullough a call early next week to find out what the status on that is. (99.9% sure I've got the job.)
