Pics from a BBQ for Cannonballers

Cannonball Sendoff


San Jose's Vespa Club Los Gatos has 4 scooterists participating in the Cannonball Run which begins next week in Oregon. Scoot! is sponsoring the event by providing each of the 30 riders with a gas card. They're going to need it as they ride scooters across country for over 3,000 miles to New Jersey. This is the second year of this event and we're proud to have 4 locals involved. Tom "Bagel" Donohue will be writing a report for the magazine.

You can follow the progress of the riders on the

Cannonball Run Website which has some public forums.

Really?!!

I've been checking it for two days now -- trying to follow the progress of my friend and co-worker
Mike Garrett -- and nothing has been posted.

Any advice, or links, that will show Cannonball progress?

Thanx!

Well, I was told that that is where they should be updating, but saying it will be done when you're sitting at home and doing it after a 300 mile ride are two different things. Hopefully we'll get an update soon.

April,

Thanx! . . . you're up bright and early.

Found these two online. Rovers has a link to the day's map of the Scooter Cannonball on their main page:
