Moped Army: Swarm and Destroy

Moped Army Mission Statement:
The Moped Army is the organizational end result of an outcropping of moped enthusiasts throughout the nation. Seeing it as more than just an easy and inexpensive way to get around town, members uphold the moped as a way of life. Although the advantages as a mode of transportation are many, a similar mind set is what brings us together. We see the moped as more than a means of travel, and truly believe in the lifestyle that accompanies riding one.

It’s all about the moped’s aesthetic, its marginalized status in our society, the friendly traveling, easy stop communication, and our ability to enjoy the trip, as well as the destination.

2-Stroke Power. Swarm and Destroy.

And in the proof that the world just got a little cooler the Moped Army is now a graphic novel: The Army has all the imfo, but here's a tease.

T'was my rare privilege to ride in the first annual Mods vs. Rockers Brighton Riots Reunion Run in Seattle a few year back on a borrowed 1962 BSA.

The deal was this- we "rockers" rode to a pre-defined halfway point wehre we joined with the mods contingetnt and then rode for a couple hours to a Sandwich shop on the water.

About 12 seconds after the "rockers" left the Cretins warehouse, there was an awful noise as if supercharged chansaws were copulating with steroid abusing hornets. We had been joined by the Seattle Mosquito Fleet division of the moped army, riding mainly cafe'd out Batavus' and Kriedlers with low bars, clip ons and even the occasional fairing.

Nice buch of' lads. I want one of the SeattleMFMA patches, but cant even find an image, online.
