Amerivespa 2008’s First Casualties

Saturday, July 26, 2008

[Updated 7/27/08:  Corrections]

Christina Chen (aka ooitschristina) and friends were happily tootling along from San Jose, California to Chattanooga, TN for the 2008 Amerivespa scooter rally.  Sometime during the evening of Sunday Saturday, July 20th(?) 19th, one of the riders in the group, Mike Bobadilla (VCLG), encountered a desert jack rabbit of the worst kind and earned him a ride in the ambulence.  He’s alright (“Just road rash, broken rib, and swollen knee/leg…”, acoording to Christina); but not his black Vespa GTS250ie, and the wabbit is dead…

Check out Christina’s delightful slideshow of her trip to Amerivespa ’08 and let’s hope the crew make it home to San Jose without further incident.  I must say after looking at her photos filled with excitement, beautiful sceneries and familiar faces…, I am justa kickin’ myself for not going to Amerivespa this year, DAMN!–Lorenzo
