SG: How did you prepare your bike & yourself for such a long ride?
Ashrat: I took my bike to Motorsport in San Dego and pretty much told Alex to prepare my scoot for a cross country race.
So, we talked a bit about what needed to be done, and he handed it over to my engineer Jeff. Personally, all I had to to was
change the spark plug a couple of times during the ride.
SG: What's the best part of scootering for you?
Ashrat: Going fast as I can.
SG: How far have you travelled for a rally?
Ashrat: 2400 there, 2400 back for victoria, been there twice: 2001, and 2004...not on scooters
SG: Do you have a "favorite" rally?
Ashrat: Oh most definately! Burgundy Topz's Scootouring. Wouldn't miss that for anything!!
SG: Any advice for novice scootergals?
Ashrat: Stay out of gravel, don't go faster than you're comfortable going. Don't let your boyfriend ride or do anything to
your scoot unless you really want him to. Don't worry about those skinny bitches that don't acually ride and hang around scooter
boys , you are way better than them, and...ALWAYS use your good common sense.
SG: Do you have any non-scooter related obsessions or collections?
Ashrat: I race motocross.
SG: What is your scooter-related guilty pleasure?
