I'm back!

So I got back at about 7 this morning. I had a great trip, lots of mopeding around Elkhart and hangin out with the Motion Left Folks. They've got a great shop, and you all would die if you saw their moped stash!

Leah was kind enough to lend me her gorgeous 1980 Testi for the time I was there, so I explored Elkhart on it. It's an amazing bike, and I was kinda sad to leave it there!

We went on a few great rides. The best one was the last night that I was there, but I didn't take any pictures of that one. This is from the other night when a few of us went geocaching in Elkhart.

Bryan rode this one, Geri's bike, that night, but he had to take it back to the warehouse 'cause it was acting up. When he rode it away it was blowing sparks outta the exhaust!

We also hung out in Detroit and Ann Arbour for a while, where I met some of Noivy Lef and the Guns. The whole thing was a blast!

I want to say thanks so much to Bryan, Leslie and CJ for putting me up all week, I had an amazing time.

    Hey Erin, I'm gonna try to make Red October but I just took time off work for this trip so I'm not 100% sure I'm going to be able to do it.

    RedOct2 will be awesome! Hope some RCMP can make it out. also there is no u in Ann Arbor. It looks like you had a good time while here in the states. What is the status on getting bikes over the border??

    what about a 1000 mile moped ride in canada???

    when's the next torontonian moped expedition?? (I'm keeping my scooter by the way)

    Travis, looks like as long as we can prove our bikes are insured, registered and plated, we can take 'em over the border. I asked my insurance guy and he said it shouldn't be a problem.

    I'm ALL over a 1000 mile Canadian ride. Maybe up to PEI or something? Better save it for the spring though:)

    Right you are Lindsay. Plared/registered and with whatever minimal insurance and you are good to go anywhere. Been there, done that and got the t-shirt to prove it! JJ

    John, do you know about actually riding them over the border, or is it better to take them in a truck?

  • At 8/29/2005 5:05 PM, Blogger john said…

    If you could haul across it would be best. If you are talking Windsor/Detroit you may be waiting a while, and that climb up the bridge would be a killer both because of the slope and the truck traffic. You would really piss the US customs off coming up the booth one at a time! Then where do you go, pretty seedie area right after the bridge on the US side. Niagara Falls might not be too bad. But still would rather haul then unload. This also gives you a support vehicle, which probably would be needed with some of the older peds. If your paperwork/insurance and tagging are good they probably would let you pass. Just my 3 pennies worth = 2 of the other guys cents.
