August  19th – 21st

If you only attend one away rally this year, this should be it. The guys and gals of Three Mile Island Scooter Club do a great job of putting on a rally. Well organized and lots of fun is only the beginning. Also, this is a great rally to ride to. Just jump on route 30 and head west. See you there!

Scooter thefts make it to the news in Philly

As the heat rises so do scooter thefts so many in fact, that even the local news has picked up on it. Check out the link to 6 ABC’s story featuring Philadelphia Scooters.

Overall summary of the news piece is: Lock up your scooter.

Also Fox 29 did a story as well but have yet to find it online.
