1st Annual Texas United Scooter Rally put on by Daniel Smith in Fredericksburg Texas, June 8 to 11, 2017. The NTNOA motorcycle guys I hangout with, always talk about the good riding and roads in Fredericksburg. I had to make Daniel scooter rally to see what the hype was all about. On the first ride, we rode to a tourist attraction called Enchanted Rock. Riding up to the park wasn’t impressed until I looked closer. From far away, Enchanted Rock looked like a small mount with weeds. The State Parks was closed when we rode up, because of overcrowding. Then I use my camera to zoom into the area. I was impressed! The weeds I thought I was, were people walking on Enchanted Rock. The closer you get to Enchanted Rock. It gets bigger, like some type of weird optical illusion. Enchanted Rock (State Natural AREA Texas Parks and Wildlife Department) The roads and countryside around Fredericksburg was beautiful with very little traffic. Back at the campground. Brandon wanted to do a longer scooter ride on his P200 to some well-known curvy roads called The Three Sisters. This photo below was taken about 50 miles out, at the beginning of one of the Three Sisters route. He said the ride would be about 100 miles with speeds around 50 mph. Bullshit! Brandon was flying on that P200. I had to tuck down on my Li 150 just to keep up with the group. I tucked behind one of those big Burgman scooters for miles. I had a death grip on the handlebars, holdfast style the entire time. My Lambretta was running wide open for hours. This scooter ride turned into a endurance of will! The curvy road in this photo was cool, but there were miles of holdfast scooter riding to get too the other curve. The next photo was taken about 80 miles from the campground, where one of the vintage V3$p@ broke down. We ended up riding over 180 miles. At each stop, the palms of my hands were numb from me squeezed out all the blood, with a death grip. I had fun, but a long fast scooter ride (On Vintage Suspension!) was a beat down!

Hello guys. I finally made it to a scooter rally this year. Austin Hill Country Classic 2017 I’ve been too broke, sick, busy, shooting motorcycle drag racing and more. I found the time to loaded up the scooter on my shitty harbor freight trailer, hopped in my 1990 Acura Integra and made it to Austin. I always love riding vintage scooter in Austin, and had a good time at the Hill Country Classic. The camping situation sucked. The rally organizers can’t be blamed, because the campground owners change the rules for scooters, out of the blue. That sucked. Life goes on, time to ride scooters. The raffle bike was funny! With that rusty DL front fender. I saw the guy riding it in the parking lot. Thinking, why would he do that, just to find out it’s the raffle bike, Texas style. haha Up to no good!

I rode my Series Three Lambrettas, Serveta Li 150 Special to Waxahachie Texas, for the North Texas Lakes Rally on Saturday June 11, 2016. It was about a 120 mile round trip scooter ride, including the scooter rally ride. Here’s the link to the video on YouTube I shot. Link to all the photos I shot at the rally. This helmet was very cool looking! But on a hot day, I don’t know? The coolest scooter at the rally was this Italjet Dragster. I haven’t seen one of those in years. It was bumped up to a 180cc and sound badass. I really like this Honda. I never seen one with a gas tank like this. It looked like a little racer. The only thing that sucked, it had a aftermarket Chinese motor. I notice a lot of people are putting Chinese motors on there small vintage motorcycles now. I didn’t camp over night, and rode back to Dallas last, my scooter and T shirt was covered with bugs.
It's time to hit the road
