Rick Snyder's Cannonball Run

Rick Snyder's a great guy.

Rick has set his sights on the 2012 Scooter Cannonball.  It's a challenge most riders don't get to measure themselves against in a lifetime.

It takes guts, a chunk of free time, great riding skills, a willingness to sleep in a motel room with your scooter, iron determination and a butt to match, an adventurous spirit, and money.

Rick has most everything he needs, but some money to help pay the Cannonball bills would be really nice.

I don't have what it takes to take on the Cannonball.  That's why I'm planning to enjoy the whole thing vicariously through Rick.

Until the 2012 Scooter Cannonball is in the history books, the Scoot Commute is throwing its support behind Rick and his daring adventure.  You'll notice a makeshift banner that will fly here for the duration.  Click on it to support Rick.

If I only had the time... the other stuff I could manage somehow.

Wow, that is quite a challenge.

It sounds like fun though.

Sonja, Trobairitz, in 2010 the Cannonball was Vancouver to Portland Maine in September. I imagined it as a nice leisurely coast to coast scoot. I thought it was something I might do someday. Lucky for me that I experienced it vicariously. Those guys and gals are NUTS. It's more like an extreme sport. Someone should do a documentary. I'm really looking forward to following this one: Savannah to San Diego. Wow.

David, thank you so much for your support. It feels great to know that people are going to get almost as much pleasure from following along as I will from doing it. As we get closer I'll be sure to pass along links for live tracking since a number of us will have SPOT GPS Messengers.

It's two months off and it's all I think about. I'm sure by the time it starts my wife will be happy to see me go :-)

Hi David just stopping by to see whats up & if you finished you scooter project?

Hi Dar,

As you'll see from one of the two posts today, I've got to wait for a repaired controller to makes its way back to be me from Oregon. My mantra is "patience... patience...".
