Greg Gentry and Elizabeth “Eli” Eickhoff (Secretary)

Members since 2014

Greg and Eli are both musicians, guitar, and bass respectively, and avid scooterists.

Greg rides a 1964 Lambretta TV175 (when it starts) and a 2009 Vespa GTS250 Super (which always starts). Eli tries to ride two Vespas at once but hasn’t quite gotten the hang of that yet, so she rides her 2010 LX150 and 2013 GTS300 separately.

Both are from TN, one from each end of the state. Eli grew up in Memphis and Greg in Chattanooga.

Their favorite rides include the twisties in the rolling hills around the north Georgia mountains.
When he’s not scooting or playing guitar, Greg is a CPA and works for ADP Tax Credit Services as Senior Director. Eli is still looking for the meaning of life, and also works as acting COO and Creative Director on the homefront.
Greg’s favorite drink is anything beer-related, preferably microbrews and beer as dark as chocolate milk. Eli prefers her iced tea unsweetened with lemon.
