What the SLUK is going on?

Hot off the press from Scooterist Meltdown here’s some information about a new and exciting project for our scooter world….

SLUK News

SLUK News

Do you love scooters but are fed up with dead-tree scooter media?

Would you like something that was more up to date, faster with the news, more interactive maybe?

Would you prefer it if you could obtain quality scooter content in a format that you could access anywhere, at any time, with the phone in your pocket or the computer in front of you?

What about going beyond a static format and adding video content designed both to inform and entertain?

How about your scooter media not being a one-way street, but by you being able to actively take part in real time?

How would you feel about all of this being brought to you by forward-thinking scooter riders like yourself.

Would you like to still get the quality of writing that only comes from knowledgeable and experienced writers?

Would you like to see big, powerful images displayed beautifully on a revolutionary website that blows the competition into the weeds?

How about if there was one place on the net that acted as a hub for scooterists worldwide? Somewhere you can find out about forthcoming events and post reports of those you’ve attended in video or photographic format.

How about a site that allowed you to get a better deal on insurance, clothing or simply to find your nearest dealer?

What would you pay for such a service?

What if we said that you do not need to visit a newsagent to pay £4 every month or take out a subscription for this?

How about if we told you that the price for all this is FREE?

If that sounds like a good deal then you need SLUK.

SLUK is short for ScooterLab.uk and it’s coming to you soon.

The last Vespa PX200 was produced by Piaggio back in 2002, EU regulations outlawing this humble commuter scooter from then on. While spare parts were produced by Piaggio for a few year afterwards – and some still are today – as any Vespa enthusiast knows, the quality of these is Continue reading

Bargain garage wear – but be quick!

W02_PD_Thursday_New_UK17_2b1ab9ead1 W02_PD_Thursday_New_UK16_7099584492

If you live in the UK, spend some time with your scooter in the shed or garage, and you’re quick on your feet, then check out this week’s ‘sale’ items in cut price supermarket, Aldi.

By chance we went into one of their stores over the weekend and came out with a couple of pairs of work trousers which are pretty warm, have plenty of pockets and, for an extra few quid, you can add some knee pads to fit into them too.

They’re only days old as we type, but so far so good and as it looks like the offer ends Wednesday or Thursday we though it best to share now!

For more info and details of your local store, visit the Aldi website.
