VCOA is a non-profit organization whose members are dedicated to riding motor scooters, and is a society for people who share the passion of vintage and modern scooters. Approximately 70% of the scooters first sold in the United States were Vespas. However, many members also own Lambretta, Cushman, Heinkel, Zundapp, and other vintage makes and models, plus a large diversity of modern scooters. VCOA supports and encourages the use of the scooter as an energy-efficient vehicle and economical mode of transportation that conserves fuel, reduces traffic congestion, and treads lightly on the overworked road system. While its origins are rooted in the iconic Vespa scooter, the VCOA welcomes all scooter enthusiasts regardless of what they ride.
As a friendly reminder, Amerivespa registration rates will increase after February 28, 2017. Current rates are $60 for VCOA members, and $65 for non VCOA members. On March 1, rates will increase to $65 for VCOA members and $70 for non VCOA members.

Why “Two Bit” you ask? Ogden, Utah is famous for many things but it’s most infamous spot is the notorious “Two Bit” street or 25th Street. Home to opium dens, brothels, gambling dens, bars and bikers, the street’s long history is rough. In fact, legend says when Al Capone made a visit, he thought it even too rough for him. Today it’s the historic center of Ogden. Many of its buildings date to the 19th century and it’s home to many terrific restaurants, boutiques and shops.
