Fantastic ride this year sponsored by Hinshaws who provided some tip top prizes and contributions that were very much appreciated by all in attendance of the scrumptious BBQ. John and Barb did a bang up job of hosting the ride around the lesser explored environs of Auburn and Kent, whipped up the delicious ingredients on the grill, organized the eventful gymkhana and slow races (a little pride was bruised) and provided many chuckles around the camp fire well passed witching hour… Boom Shanka!

This year, John C. and Barb will be leading the annual Hinshaws Ride. We will be exploring the roads less traveled nestled in the mythic undergrowth of Kent and Auburn and in true club style, an as of yet undisclosed watering hole will be visited en route to satiate the scooterists thirst.
The ride will cluminate in the late afternoon with a BBQ, Gymkhana, and prizes graciously hosted at John and Barbs residence. Jumping naked through the bonfire will be completely optional.
All scooterists are cordially invited to join the festivities.
The Monthly Club Ride for March 2011 will be a one week trip down to Nha Trang, Vietnam…
“Whether you’re riding pillion on the back of a restored vintage Vespa for our half-day tours of Saigon or take the wheel yourself for our three-day and seven-day trips to oceanside Mui Ne or Nha Trang, you’ll find we’ve tailored each journey to take advantage of the best sights and experiences Vietnam has to offer. And there’s no better way to experience it all than from the seat of a classic Vespa scooter. (Note: during the peak travel season of November 1 – January 31, our rates rise 15% to match local rates.)” — Courtesy of Vietnam Vespa Adventures
