I'm planning to be there as long as I get my Burgman back from the shop in time. I had it in for routine maintenance a few weeks ago (oil, filter, tire, etc) and somehow they dropped it off the bike lift. Smashed the front fairing, side fairing, power mirror assembly, windshield, and rear rack.
But as long as it's ready, I'll be to NY state with you guys.

WOW ... that was devastating news Steve.  Sorry to hear this.

Hope it is as good as new when you get it back ---in the timely manner you need.

The owner of a local marina (where I had built a 15 ton straddle carrier) informed me one day when I arrived to go boating that he had dropped a large sail boat.  I looked over at the lift ..... "Not dropped from the lift , he said, .... the hitch for the yard trailer broke ... and it ran back down a grade before the boat fell off the trailer."  He called the boat's who after a moment's silence started laughing.  Questioning why this was funny ... the owner said he presently was in a stress management course.  Must have been a really good course !!

Enjoy NY, Steve.

Carolyn will not doesn’t have a enough vacation time left.  Joan has family in hospice so it is not looking like she can come.  Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Karin and I are planning to attend.  Just working through the trip planning logistics now. 

We just returned from a vacation week along Ontario's west coast paradise ... Lake Huron shores.  Camped for the week near Kincardine and rode over 1,600 kms. (1,000 miles) between Grand Bend and Sauble Beach just taking day trips on our scooters. 

On the way home, the RF brake caliper seized on our truck/truck camper combo so we parked at a very convenient repair shop, unloaded the scoots from the cargo trailer and rode home the rest of the way.  A final little "bonus ride" for the week.  Just waiting for the "call" today from the shop as to what needs doing and how much it'll cost.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again.  ~ Len ~

I  get a count of eight or nine, depending on whether or not Steve can make it.  I know that Steve had volunteered to lead the ride one day, but has anyone else stepped up to manage this event?  Or are the few of us just going to improvise every day?

JD. I'll be leaving on Sunday from Pinehurst riding the BLP
 to Afton VA. Spend the night and head to Gettysburg  PA on Monday via the Skyline Dr and back roads. Spend Tuesday AM at the Gettysburg Battlefield before riding the 4 hours to Cooperstown. You can join in route if you want.

Thanks for the kind offer, John, but I'm coming from a different direction and will, in fact, be trailering my bike to the rally this year.

I'm going to cancel my plans to come to this Meet Up.

I'm located halfway between Cooperstown and Eureka Springs, the location of "Scoot the Ozarks," and need to choose between them.  As far as I can tell by the posts here, projected attendance is meager and I don't see any indication that anyone has stepped up to manage things in Maggie's absence.  Rather than risking a 1300+ mile round trip to an event, the details of which I am in doubt, I've decided to cancel my reservation and head to Eureka Springs, instead.

I look forward to next year's Maxi Scoot Meet Up so that I can again see all the friends I made last year.

I feel badly for not being able to attend this year but such is life. 

We hope to be able to be back for next year.  (Probably as we discussed last year will be Arkansas)

I do have a suggestion since you all will be a smaller group.  Ride to Lake Placid.  I wanted to do that but with a larger group didnít think it was manageable.   Itís a long day but the roads look amazing!

Just a beautiful area, very disappointed I am unable to make the trip this year. Really wanted to go to the Woodstock site and the Baseball Hall of Fame. Hope the weather is great and those attending have a blast. Probably the best group I have ever ridden with so be safe.

joan- just go into the middle of a big cow field, wait for it to rain and make everything muddy, and look at some ants about a mile away with binoculars, and you've recaptured Woodstock. I was there and it SUCKED.

Well I was over at the dealers again today and my baby is still looking pretty sad. Still quite a few parts that haven't arrived yet.
So right now my odds seem to have dropped of me having a scooter to make it to the meetup. I'm still hopeful but also have to be a realist.

Had a nice chat for an hour with John Powell this evening who I was supposed to be bunking with and it sounds like we're trying to flip a 3-sided coin and hoping for heads!

Will keep folks advised. Perhaps I'll go out and buy a lottery ticket. Would have better odds!

Hey All, I thought I'd tally up who will be in our small but amazingly fun rally group.  As of right now, we have:

Cathy & Bob - IL
John - TN
Bruce - NY
Karin & Len - Waterloo, ON Canada (staying at the Cooperstown Deer Run Campground - Site #40)

___________
6 - confirmed


Tim - PA - maybe abbreviated visit
Steve - Toronto Canada - longshot

________
2 - maybe


Feel free to change/add your information by copying the above text, re-posting a reply to this thread and adding your information.

FYI - John, if Steve's ride isn't repaired in time for the get-together, as a fellow Canuk, I'll be happy to have his back and step in and drink that delicious cold beer you would have had waiting for him ...
