50 cc's of simple fun!


So, Every year around this time, something magical happens. It's full of splendor, wisdom, and two-stroke exhaust.
That's right, it's the infamous MoPedLar Moped ride in New Jersey.

I was looking forward to this since last year. Larry is our host, and we (moped community) were a bit worried because Larry sold off a huge lot of his mopeds, said he was getting out of mopeds, and said that this year was going to be the last year he was hosting the rally.

Of course he was serious...that is, until 50+ riders showed up and made him think differently.

I got there early and spent the night in Larry's '73 V-Dub Bus. I was so excited, I couldn't sleep. I woke up at 5 AM, just in time to see a lonely moped rider go whizzing by Larry's house. Once he pulled over, he introduced himself, and mentioned that he had just ridden over 10 hours on his moped driving from New York City to Port Murray, NJ. WOW. My jaw dropped.
By 12 PM, all 50+ riders rolled out for the day. It was soooooo great. I love meeting new people, especially moped people. What a blast! I really can't say enough about Larry and Kim (wife)!

Needless to say, There will be a 5th annual (or 1st annual, depending on how you see it) moped rally of some sort next year. I've already got my calendar marked and ready to go!!!

And yes, I realize this post is just interesting to anyone familiar with two-wheeled vehicles. It really is a different kind passion that one must have to really enjoy another's love for the mechanical beast. Truly it is.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading!
