Raid of the Deserti

If Google Language Tools is to be believed, twenty members of VespaOnline, an Italian organization, will be riding together across the Mohave Desert next month. Their president will be riding a Vespa Rally wired with computer goodies that seems fairly overdesigned and unprotected, a laptop in the glovebox would do the trick, though the touchscreen is a nice, uh, touch. They plan to hook up with the Cannonball Run riders, though it appears the Cannonballers are due in California a week before the Italians arive. We look forward to the stories of both groups.
