Beach Cities Scooter Club President Melanie Cooper
This past weekend, Mrs. Jaycee and I, were out shopping and ended up having a really cool adventure. I was busy teaching this Double cheese burger a lesson, when we noticed a whole bunch of folks on scooters. Now, I've seen bike clubs, car clubs and motorcycle clubs but never a scooter club. Luckily, Mrs. Jaycee, had her trusty digital camera with her and my mouth was in good working order.
I approached the group which numbered over a hundred people and introduced myself. It was sunny, the air was mostly smog free and hell ,I'd never seen over a hundred folks on Vespas before. This ish was coooooooooooool! Anyone remember the Honda Elites back around 1986 and how big a fad they became? Even dudes were riding those.
So I first met a young dude wearing shorts and Doc Martins and I asked him about all the folks and what they were doing. Well, this is the Beach Cities Scooter Club and we are meeting up for a ride. He was kind enough to introduce me to the President of the Beach Cities Scooter Club, his Mom! So, I spoke with Melanie Cooper, the founder and President of the club.
Mista Jaycee: So, how did this come about?
Melanie Cooper: Well, I went to Meet Up.com and typed in scooters and well I started a club. Soon, there were others who contacted me and joined.
Mista Jaycee: Now, why a scooter and not a Harley or a Schwinn?
Melanie Cooper: I own a motorcycle, but this is Southern California, and nothing looks better than Southern California on a scooter.
Mista Jaycee: All these people belong to Beach Cities Scooter Club?
Melanie Cooper: No, there are several other clubs that have found us and joined us for today's ride.
Mista Jaycee: Cool! Who knew there were scooter clubs and all these people would get together? It just proves what me and Mrs. Jaycee say to our daughter. Get in where you fit in!
