Tucson Fall Classsic #20

November 9th, 10th, 11th, 2007

Come be a part of scooter history and ride in one of the oldest scooter rallies in the South West U.S. The rally begins at the Hotel Congress in historic downtown Tucson. Come down on the 9th starting at 6pm for rally registration, mingling, music, drinks and, of course, scooters. The hotel fills up very quickly, so click on the link below to reserve your room NOW! FYI the hotel does supply secured scooter parking.

Saturday morning, the rally departs from the Hotel Congress for a 125-mile ride through the beautiful scenic landscape of southwestern Arizona. We will have a mid-way stop in the rustic town of Patagonia for gas, drinks and to stretch our legs. From Patagonia, we will continue on through Nogales, Arizona to our legendary, isolated, reserved, group campsite in the Coronado National Forest.

At the Calabasas campsite, we will be greeted by a catered BBQ, multiple kegs of beer, music and a bonfire. Several campsites, firepits, firewood and restroom are available. It can get cold at the campsite, so don't forget tents, sleeping bags and other camping gear.

Sunday, we will awaken from our hangovers for a Mexican breakfast of eggs, potatoes, coffee, chorizo, tortillas and menudo.

For more information: Contact Matthew or Megan Noli @ 520.591.6945 or

Attention: Any scooter clubs, old or new, that have participated in this historic scooter rally in the past, please contact Matthew in order for your club to receive acknowledgement at this years rally.

I'll check with my friends down there. They come up here for rallies. I ride a 50cc in Los Angeles.

There's a rally this weekend down there:

There's the Mods vs. Rockers Campout (I can't wait to have a bike that can make this year!):

And my personal favorite and I killed a 50cc bike doing it:

Don't worry about what you ride. Yeah, there are the Italo-snobs, but most scooterists are just happy to see another step-through biker.
