To show their adoration for powersports machines, moped owners occasionally meet up and ride their motorized devices together in a group. During these celebratory trips, motor scooter fans make pit stops at predefined locations to eat, rest, and conduct festive activities. Scooter fans hoping to experience one of these lovely gatherings may want to check out some of the upcoming moped rallies in 2022.
The Muff Peddlers Midwest Moped Prom
Prom is not for everyone. Nevertheless, the adult scooter group known as the Muff Peddlers Midwest have scheduled a moped prom from August 5th – 7th in Lawrence, Kansas. If everything goes as planned, motor scooter enthusiasts may be able to experience the following events with fellow powersports machine fans.
- Friday night brewery ride featuring six stops and a rest period at the last location
- Saturday drive that covers over 60 miles of terrain
- Event ends at a prom-like setting with live music, fun raffles, and crownings
As an added bonus, good eats from Treats and Dos! Pizza is included. Owners of scooters with a seat that are eager to be in the upcoming moped prom are encouraged to donate $20 to cover event expenses, but are not required to do so.
