And I thought this was over the top... HA!
Well it's been a looooong time since I posted ANYTHING.
And why? Because I am out living my life and up to NO GOOD.
First, I had to get ready for Amerivespa in Lake Geneva.
Let me just say, that Amerivespa is a MUST! If you ride a scooter you MUST attend at least one Amerivespa in your life. You OWE it to yourself.
Record ride photo... it was AWESOME!
Now, I had so much to do, with work and with getting ready for Amerivespa that I had to let my blogs slide. But now I am making an effort to come back and document the insanity.
It helps if you bring your own camera. Photo by Brian Albers.
Note to self, next time, DO NOT FORGET CAMERA!
First, how do you prepare for Amerivespa? As a matter of fact, I could have gone MORE around the bend, because about 1/3 of scooter riders deck themselves and their scooters out like it was the Mardi Gras.
I have no idea who to credit for this photo but it is AWESOME!
I got myself a nice new helmet and stuck some chrome horns on it. That's how I got ready for Amerivespa. I got a few looks riding up there, but I enjoyed the little bit of attention. But let me tell you, when I got there, my helmet and custom painted dragon scooter was just a wee drop in the crazy bucket.
Turns out this is only semi-crazy at an Amerivespa.
FYI - could have used MORE Insanity.
Lots of these scooters are classic with crazy awesome paint jobs and great details. I was there 4 days and I don't think I caught all the scooters with all their details. It was just insane.
See, I am NOT the only one!
If you just "Google" Amerivespa you will find tons of photos and videos to satisfy your curiosity.

Let me just say, the 2012 Amerivespa location (Lake Geneva, Wisconsin) the venue (MAC Motorcycles) the parties, the people and the scooters was over the top awesome. I don't think I have ever met such wonderful open, kind and inviting folks in my life. I really enjoyed every aspect of it.
Note to self, No matter how much your friends like your white pants..
DON'T WEAR THE WHITE PANTS! Your friends are NOT your friends and your FAT WHITE A$$ will be all over everyone's Amerivespa photos.
Because no matter what you ride, you are welcome. Scooterist love other scooterists and other scooters. Amerivespa should really be Ameri-Scooter.
