Hi gang, I am Bill Scott and I live in LA (Lower Alabama) near Thomasville about 100 miles north of Mobile. I have a 93 Helix (hoochi Mama). I also have a 76 Goldwing. I prefer to ride the Helix. I plan to attend the rally in 08 along with my brother Bob who lives in our home town of McGehee, Arkansas nad also rides a 07 Helix. I am looking forward to meeting the gang in person and shake some hands and give some hugs. I just made my first long trip on the Helix to McGehee then to Alexandria, Louisiana and back home. total of 1200 miles with side trips. I started riding in 1956 on a brand new Cushman Eagle.
Hello Bill! Glad to have you scootin with us. You need to post some of your pictures on the "Ride report" board (if you would). I started on a Cushman Eagle too. My Dad got it at Western Auto, boy that dates me.
Hi! Made the transition over! Woohooo! I am Shari. . . live in Lindale, Texas. . . ride a '94 Honda Helix and love it! However, I am looking forward to the day I upgrade to a SilverWing. Who knows. . .maybe by rally time in '08! The STO will be my first rally or at least at this point it will be. . . I will be attending with my sister, for sure. . . and most likely my dad, as he is the one that got me interested in scooters. I am 100% addicted to scootering and have started a scooter club here. . . Am still looking for members, but hopefully soon, it will really start to grow. Who knows. . .maybe I can get the whole group to the STO rally next year. . . That's a goal anyway. Looking forward to meeting everyone and having a super great time for the next year getting ready for this awesome event!
Shari Addicted to scooting Lindale, Texas Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain. . .

Hello, I am Ross Murphy, I am retired and live in Longview, TX and have been riding scooters since the 1960's. I have owned and ridden all sizes of motorcycles but still prefer scooters. I currently own a 2002 Silver Wing, 10 Cushman Eagles, 3 Cushman Step Throughs and 1 Allstate scooter. I have been collecting Cushman scooters since I rediscovered them in 1985. For 20+ years my wife and I manufactured original and custom seats for Cushmans. In 2006, after over two decades and 20,000+ seats we shut the door on this business. I currently rebuild engines and transmissions for these scooters. My web site is www.cushmanrepair.com. I always have enjoyed riding the Ozarks, in fact I just completed a 1100+ mile trip where we rode the "Pig Trail" Oklahoma's scenic Hwy 10 as well as the Talimena drive (both ways) last month. I have scooted the Eureka Springs area a couple of times now, once on a Cushman Eagle and once on a Honda 250 Elite. Really a scootering area for sure! I hope to be able to make the '08' Rally for sure!

Howdy! Joel Allen, I'm soon to be retired fireman living on Fort Gibson lake in N.E. Oklahoma between Wagoner and Muskogee. My wife, Theresa, works for the Cherokee Nation as a W.I.C. specialist. We have four kids and six grandkids. Our scoot is a Suzuki Burgman AN650 that has been my main transport since July. We just got back from scooting to Eureka Springs last weekend and hope to make the rally there next year.

Hello everyone! Lou here. Many of you know myself & my Bride Diane as we have attended Scootercade & Renegade Rally the past 2 years. We live up here in another part of gods country. Wausau Wi. We also enjoy many twisty back roads along rivers & lakes to tour on. The only problem is winters can be a bit long here. I enjoy working with Charlie to hopefully make this the best Scooter Rally in the nation. I only wish I could do more. Being 800 miles away doesn't help. This is going to be one COOL scooter board. I look forward to having fun here & meeting new people. I am going to be putting out the word on other scooter boards about our exciting new webpage.

Greetings From Baraboo, WI !!
My wife Tammy and I have a Silver "2006" AN650 Burgman, We're proud parents of a United States Marine currently serving at the Pentagon in Washington after returning from 9 months in Afhganistan and we're happy and grateful to have him home. We have 3 children total, all grown and out of the house. Which gives mom and I time to have fun on our own. We hope to make it to Eureka Springs , it sounds like a great time and a great ride.
Hi folks... I'm Dave, my wife Doris & I are retired and live near Williamsburg, MO between St.Louis & Columbia. We love touring on our Burgman 650 that we purchased in 03...We have been to Eureka Springs on 2 occasions and are really looking forward to meeting everyone at the Rally in 08.

Mark Welcome. Nice to see a fellow Wisconsinite here You will Like Eureka Springs. Its alot like the territory where you live. Twisty curvy roads with a lot of breath takeing views. Its a beautiful place to vacation. The town has a lot of old buildings built into the sides of mountains. Diane & I will be going in our motorhome. If you want to meet up. That could be a possibility.
