This weekend is the “Mad B-(astard) Scooter Rally” and I’ll be riding my KYMCO Bet & Win 150cc competing on the “media team” in the 150-200cc category. The rally is the brain child of CMGonline (motorcycle news) and sponsored by KYMCO Canada! Participants are riding all brands of scooters!
We’re starting off at Gatineau Four Points Hotel, Ottawa-Gatineau--there are about 75 riders riding through a 560 km journey or if riders opt for the 'bonus route' we'll end up riding about 749km's! The route, unknown to any of us right now, will go through Quebec and Ontario. The start is before the crack of dawn Saturday morning the 12th and should bring most of us back to the finish line, the hotel, 12-14 hours later! “Mad-points” can be accumulated and won for finding certain hot spots along the way--additional points for costume including your scooter. So I’ve got a theme and I can assure you my scooter looks quite bizarre! Curious? -let me show you a picture next week!
I’m also testing a product called the Air Hawk 2—a special motorcycle seat cushion that’s intended to make riding for long hours more pleasurable for the buttocks! Well, 12-14 hours in the saddle should make for an appropriate test! Give you the scoop on that later too.
And we were all asked to raise money for the great cause "Kids Help Phone"—special thanks for the pledges I received—special note to Tony at Mountain Cycle Inc. and BMW Motorrad Canada for being so generous!

Now... time to get some sleep in preparation for the coming madness!

Hi Vicki - I saw quite a few of the 'Mad Bastards' out on the roads around Foymount and Wilno on Saturday but didn't see anyone with long blond hair. We rode part of the route to no avail. Hope to see you sometime this summer! Stephanie
