My co-worker told me about this. It’s this Saturday, May 12. Surely if you area MOD or a ROCKER you better get your butt down there, this is going to be a hoot!
What you do is meet up in the Embarcadero (San Francisco)
Mods aggregate @ Pier 40. Vespas, Ben Sherman wear, mod punk music, etc.
Rockers @ Pier 23 (leave SFMC @ 2p for Pier 23). Wear all your cool rocker gear. Who cares what the weather is like, you can handle it.
The ride leaves @ 3pm sharp for the Infamous Stockton tunnel smoke out, combined ride around the City, and Hollywood ending @ SFMC.
This ride is a blast (or borderline insanity, depending on your inclination).
Is it a Mini event? No, not officially. This is a ride of the 2 wheeled kind (hence, SFMC). Can you bring your Mini? Uh, I dunno, I guess so, I mean, if you are a mod or a rocker that’s a start. Definately not a sanctioned thing even though they have combined Mini and Mod runs in the UK all the time.
I would love to be there, I’d be a mod on my beemer (yeah, I do have a BMW motorcycle along with the BMW produced MINI Cooper S) — but I think I will be in Santa Cruz so, who knows.. maybe someone from Miniology or a contributing writer/photographer can help cover this wild one.
