    I had no idea there were so many mber's in the Boston area. This is going to be good.
    I know of a group of moped riders that meet in Cambridge on Wednesday nights. Maybe we can decend upon their group ride and all join up? They told me mber's are welcome.
    What do you all think? They organize every Wednesday and there is saftey in numbers.
     
  7. I'm game, any night would work for me as long as it's after say 9pm when baby goes to sleep and wifey can hold down the fort. I don't want to be the only jerk on a MB with a bunch of scooterheads though. Can we do a pm or a chat room to verify who will attend. It would also be nice to grab a couple of drinks before/during/after the ride.

    Are you sure our MB's will keep up woth the scooters? i know even with my shift kit, a stock HT setup has better accelleration than my bike, and a scooter has much better acceleration.
     
  9. well the scooters might have faster takeoff than us, but we made our bikes ourselves. and we don't look retarded using the pedals they came with. LOL

    It was just a thought. We don't have to ride with anyone but ourselves.
    I didn't make any solid plans to meet up with them I just thought it might be funny to see a bunch of mber's decend upon a moped get together.
    Mopeds aren't much faster than my mb. I've had both. The accelration is quicker on a moped but the top end is close.

    i think a plan is in order. Should we just make a date and see who can make it or should we somehow discuss it as a group?
    I think drinks before after or during would be a great idea :D



     
  11. preferably after 8 on wednesday, preferably downtown, but I can go any night & wherever.

    I say we meet up in the beach area, Carson, Malibu, Teenan, ect, or Castle Island. Then we can ride from South Boston / Dorchester to Downtown. This route is very MB friendly

    How does this Sunday June 7th sound to people? I wouldn't be able to ride until the afternoon / early eve but I should be free around 3:00pm.
    Since people are coming from different areas, we can pick a place centrally located (like the Boston commons) and go from there. I have no route in mind so we'd have to come up with that on the spot.
    What do people think?

    Sunday maybe good, provided it get my replacement sprocket form SickBikeParts get to me by saturday. Timing is always great for me when it comes to things breaking on me. i think June 14 will be better.
     
  15. I could do Sunday, but it would have to be later than 3pm for me, I can meet you all up later on downtown for some beers perhaps.

    So... I have created a map of the meeting site and proposed MB route. I take this route all the time it ia very safe and MB friendly.
    http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=...287,-71.039228&spn=0.045294,0.076904&t=h&z=14

    Ray if you look at this map you will be able to get directions to Carson Beach. Im not sure how you are getting here but Carson Beach is exit 15 on I-93.

    I will be there @ 3pm I will be at the first parking lot next to the State Police Barracks. If anymone needs to contact me, PM me and i will give you my cell #.

    See you all there!
