Well, we finally got out of winter, and with the spring it’s time to start cranking up another glorious Rally Season! Just like spring flowers, news of great upcoming rally events for 2013 are busting out all over! Please save a spot on your riding calendar for Tour di Mari 6, which will be happening July 19-21, 2013. As Rod Filbrant’s excellent poster implies, we’re rocking a retro ‘space age’ theme this year, and there will be rides, music, food and fun aplenty (what did you expect? It’s a Westenders rally, after all!).
Please visit this site regularly, or better still, visit and ‘like’ our Facebook page, for information on itinerary, advance purchase of Rally Packs, and all the usuals.
Finally, spring is here! Sorry about the long hibernation, but both the Seattle scooter scene and your Westenders are alive and well! Here’s some stuff coming up:

Each year, the Westenders Scooter Club’s annual Tour di Mari rally has grown bigger and better. We all knew that with a restored Vespa to give away, this year’s rally would be big. Little did we know just how big it would be! (more…)
Happy day as Mother Goose is surprised and delighted to win the raffle scooter! (video: Click)
Tour di Mari 5 is clearly the biggest and best Tour di Mari rally ever! At the Saturday BBQ, we served over 110 people, and raffled off a ton of wonderful merchandise donated by our sponsors! Here, you can see the restored 1974 Vespa Super being won by our very own Mother Goose!
