The Scooter Cannonball Run is a coast to coast endurance event for scooters. It is a time/distance/regularity rally where points are awarded based on miles completed and the ability to maintain the standard pace. This year it will begin in Savannah, GA and end eight days later in San Diego, CA covering 2633 miles. There are over 50 entrants riding all types of scooters. From a 1946 Salibury to a modern 3 wheel Piaggo MP3. I have decided join the fun this year. We will leave Savannah on April 22 and head west. I will be riding to raise money for KIDS and LEMUR'S charities. Please help us by purchasing some miles for one of these charities. Don't worry, I will be covering close to 6,000 miles out to California and back to Florida, so there are plenty of miles to go around. ALL monies go directly to the charity.

I am way down the list on the handicaps, which means it is going to be really, really hard to win, but I am going to ride really, really smart and hope to at least finish good.

Lee B is getting a lot of coverage for riding a 1946 Salsbury, but the only thing from 1946 is the body.  The real heroes in this thing, in my opinion, will be riders on the real vintage scooters and any scooter with less than 200 displacement.  Especially the people on the 50 and 60cc.  They are just looking for pain I think. But, as someone said, "any scooter for any reason entering is something to be proud of". Finishing as a winner is something to brag about.

The youngest rider is 23 and the oldest 79.  In fact there are 4 riders in their 70's and 4 in their 20's.  The largest  group is in their 40's.

Distribution looks like this.
